AREA responds to the call for evidence by Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark related to a REACH restriction proposal to limit the risks to the environment and human health from the manufacture and use of all per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).
Supporting EPEE's arguments, AREA points out to the following:
1- PFAS have a wide range of different properties
2- F-gases are already successfully addressed by the F-Gas Regulation
3- Lower GWP HFCs and HFOs are essential to achieve the objectives of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol
4- Heating and cooling are essential to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050
