Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and other chemicals used to manufacture many everyday household products and firefighting foam since the 1940s.
DuPont does not make PFOA, PFOS or GenX. Further, DuPont never manufactured or sold firefighting foam.
Across our portfolio, DuPont’s use of other PFAS is a small fraction of the total PFAS used in the world. While our use is extremely small, we’re actively pursuing alternatives to PFAS where possible in our manufacturing processes.
Safety and environmental stewardship are core values at DuPont. We’re committed to fulfilling our obligations and to being a responsible partner in addressing concerns about the health and environmental impacts of PFAS.
