Governments and researchers increases cooperation to minimise PFAS risks

News: Jun 01, 2017

37 authorities and research organisations have agreed to make a joint effort to minimize PFAS risks. The government in Sweden has decided to set up a co-ordination group (SamTox) with seven heads of government, which will work together to identify and address new and possible chemical threats at an early stage.

High-fluorinated substances (PFAS) cause environmental problems and have, among other things, contaminated drinking water in several places in Sweden. Therefore, there is a need for increased cooperation between authorities and researchers. Government in Sweden therefore intend to expand cooperation to increase the impact of the resources in dealing with the problems with high-fluorinated substances (PFAS).
