Forever chemicals' could be phased out in Australia under new restrictions

There's growing global concern about potential risks to human health and the environment from a group of industrial chemicals commonly known as PFAS, or "forever chemicals." The federal government intends to stop the import, manufacture and use of some types of PFAS within two years. We want to raise awareness and encourage industry to be proactive about finding alternatives. The sooner industry acts on this, the faster we can eliminate PFAS from the products we use and our waste. With untold benefits for people and our planet.

            It's encouraging to hear that new restrictions could potentially phase out the use of "forever chemicals" like PFAS.
