PFAS Grouping: An Emerging Scientific Consensus 

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), or Fluorotechnology, are a diverse universe of chemistries that makes possible the products that power our lives – the cellphones, tablets and telecommunications we use every day to connect with our friends and family; the aircraft that power the U.S. military; alternative energy sources critical to sustainability goals; and medical devices that help keep us healthy.

However, all PFAS are not the same. Individual chemistries have their own unique properties and uses, as well as environmental and health profiles.
