Open letter PFAS restriction - proposal & request for exemtion of FLUOROPOLYMERS

Stand: September 2021

pro-K Industrieverband Halbzeuge und Konsumprodukte aus Kunststoff e. V. (pro-K) represents manufacturers of semi-finished products and consumer products made of plastic. The processors of Fluoropolymers are organized within the ‘Fluoropolymergroup’ which consists of appr. 60 member and associated member companies. Part manufacturers and producers of components and systems, containing Fluoropolymers, are also involved.

This group demonstrates the application possibilities and performance properties of Fluoropolymers, and generates the guidelines for proper handling it ‘from the cradle to the grave’. Recent activities focus more and more on setting up complete product cycles, including chemical recycling, back to the monomers and starting the next loop.

As a team of downstream users, the members of the Fluoropolymergroup fully support the enclosed response to the RoI.
