Use of PFAS

Companies like DuPoint and 3M drive major revenues from the selling of PFAS. This is a critical component that is widely used in water creation and in textile as stain repellant. The manufacturers of carpets, fabrics and upholstery use it. PFAS gets direct revenue of $1 billion in a year. The secondary market of PFAS is for lubricants, spray on coatings, paints and polishes. This market gets a sale of $10 million every year.

This is a major component in the use of the following:

  • Flame extinguisher foam
  • Pesticide
  • Ink
  • In auto and airspace industry as hydraulic fluid
  • Components of copier and printer
  • Medical devices
  • Metal plating
  • Food packaging
  • Coating for nonstick cookware
Impact on the Environment

PFAS has been used for several decades by different industries. And that is why it is found in large quantities in the environment. The Environment Working Group published a report in June 2017 where they claimed that PFAS is found in 27 states and their water supplies affecting 15 million Americans. Not only humans, it is also found in the blood of domestic animals and wildlife. As a non-biodegradable component, PFAS remains in the environment for years, affecting the life of the entire community.

Consequences on Health

PFAS is currently affecting human health a lot. Known as a carcinogen, this is a component that is associated with testicular and kidney cancer. Apart from that, this is also associated with the following health problems:

  • Higher level of Cholesterol
  • Pre-eclampsia which is a dangerous complication with pregnancy
  • Dysfunction in thyroid and cancer for kids
  • Development disability
  • Mental impairment
  • Blood disorder
  • Colitis
How Does PFAS Enter Water Supply

Through industrial waste, PFAS enters the water supply. It can happen when the waste is released in rivers, streams and on the ground. When it rains, the component finds its way into underground aquifers. Being non-biodegradable, it not only affects the water supply but also enters the food chain.

PFAS can be found around the fire training institute where it is used as extinguisher foam. It is also a heavy duty lubricant found in military air base. In fact, in Michigan, the waterfall near the former US Air Force base has been contaminated with PFAS.

PFAS Removal

PFAS removal is a highly expensive endeavor for any community. While the granular activated carbon technique purifies PFOS and PFOA, PFAS needs reverse osmosis or a more complex technique that will cost over $1 million.

Come to Logue Law Group. Our Pittsburgh PFAS lawyer will help you file the lawsuit and get the government entities to pay for the entire community. Give us a call for a consultation today.
