RedG Webinar on Fire-fighting Foam - 25 November 2020

"Since the mid-60’s, industries have been using Firefighting  Foam agents as a fire-extinguishing medium to extinguish  flammable and combustible liquid, called class B fires. The use  of AFFF, FFFP, FP foam agents by the industry is globally being  reviewed and regulated because they include so called PFAS  chemicals. PFAS is well known for their persistence, bioaccumulation and  (high) toxic behavior and can therefore cause illness when  humans and animals are being exposed. During this webinar you will be guided to what challenges lie  ahead for various industries who will need to transition to  new generation FFF (Fluorine Free) Foam agents."
