PFOS was banned in Europe in 2009 and PFOA in 2020 and the vast majority of foam manufacturers based in Europe have not used these types of fluorosurfactants for some years.
All film forming foams manufactured in Europe for the EU/UK market are manufactured using fluorosurfactants based on C6 technology.).

If this proposal is adopted by Europe, then all C6 based fire-fighting foam will be included in this proposal and will lead to an eventual ban on the use of AFFF and all film forming foams. UK authorities are discussing similar proposals.).
