Increasing public scrutiny and government oversight are pushing companies across sectors — from apparel and personal care to consumer electronics, construction, and medical devices — to evaluate their products, supply chains, and waste streams for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Exponent designs custom strategies for assessing PFAS in your past and present supply chains, finished goods, and waste streams to empower critical product stewardship decisions and facilitate environmental and regulatory compliance.

Do your products, supply chains, or waste streams contain PFAS? How do you know?

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), so-called "forever chemicals," can be present either intentionally or unintentionally throughout your product supply chain.  As public scrutiny and government oversight of PFAS — including PFOA, PFOS, PFNA, PFHxS, PFBS, GenX, and other small molecule and fluoropolymer chemistries — continue to grow, it's critical to develop a thorough understanding of the chemical compounds present throughout your product supply chain and waste streams.
