What are PFAS?

Known as “forever chemicals,” PFAS are manmade chemicals that have been used in various products since the 1940s. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, the most commonly studied PFAS are perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS).
 
PFAS have been used to manufacture firefighting foams at military bases, as well as non-stick cookware, stain-resistant fabrics and carpets, and products that resist grease, water, and oil. These chemicals can move into the soil, water, and air during production or usage. Due to their strong chemical bonds, most PFAS do not break down and remain in the environment and the human body. Exposure to PFAS has been associated with numerous health conditions, including lymphoma, leukemia, and other types of cancer.

What is AFFF?

Aqueous firefighting foam (AFFF) is a synthetic foam used to extinguish fires involving petroleum, jet fuel, and other flammable liquids. As indicated by its name, AFFFs produce an aqueous film that spreads across the fire’s surface, blocking the oxygen supply to the flame and cooling the liquid fuel. AFFF also prevents evaporation and reignition of the fire.

 
AFFF was invented by the U.S. Navy, which received a patent in 1966. By the mid-1960s, the 3M Company was manufacturing AFFF for the military, and later in the decade, the Navy required all of its vessels to carry aqueous firefighting foam. By the 1970s, the Department of Defense (DOD) was using AFFF at all military installations.

 
In September 2022, Bloomberg Law reported that the U.S. Military will replace PFAS-laden AFFF with a safe and effective alternative. By October 2023, all new foam purchased by the Military must be free of PFAS, and by 2024, the DOD must cease all use of PFAS-based foam.
