ZeroF General Assembly
ZeroF consortium meets in Espoo to tackle PFAS in packaging and textiles

The ZeroF project, funded by the EU and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), has kicked off its 36-month research program with its first General Assembly and consortium meeting held in Espoo, Finland on 1-2 March 2023. The project aims to develop safe and sustainable alternatives to replace pe per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, #PFAS, in #foodpackaging and upholstery #textiles.

12 research and industry partners will work together to develop safe and sustainable coating alternatives to replace PFAS in food packaging and upholstery textiles.

During the two-day event, partners had the opportunity to meet, discuss the project phases and objectives, and reinforce the vision of ZeroF and its potential impact on the industry, European community, and society. The meeting marked the beginning of a journey towards finding PFAS-free solutions that will benefit both the environment and human health. The ZeroF consortium looks forward to seeing the impact of the scientific findings on the project and the long-lasting effects on the industry.

As more and more news emerges about the harmful effects of PFAS, the ZeroF consortium is committed to providing safer alternatives that are sustainable and will contribute positively to the well-being of society. Stay tuned for further updates on the progress of the ZeroF project, and the impact it is expected to have on our daily lives.
