Washington State Announces PFASs in Food Packaging AA Webinar

Washington State’s Department of Ecology (Ecology) will hold a webinar on Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) in food packaging on April 14, 2020. The state’s Toxics in Packaging Law (RCW 70.95G) was amended in 2018 to include a ban on PFAS in food packaging that will take effect following the identification of safer alternative products. The webinar is part of Ecology’s PFAS Alternatives Assessment (PFAS AA) in food packaging (e.g., wrappers, bags, liners, plates, bowls, trays, and takeout-containers).

The topics for discussion at the April 14 webinar will include essential functions, whether alternatives meet these essential functions, and possible over-engineering of PFAS-containing products for certain product types. Ecology explained in an announcement about the webinar that it is seeking feedback from interested parties across the entire supply chain.

Those interested in participating can register here.
