The article "F-GASES, AN UNPRECEDENTED CASE OF CHEMICAL POLLUTION" by Beverley Thorpe highlights the environmental and health dangers posed by F-gases, which, while reducing climate impacts, degrade into persistent and mobile PFAS pollutants such as trifluoroacetic acid (TFA). These pollutants are accumulating in various environmental media, including rainwater, groundwater, ocean water, and human blood, with no effective remediation methods available. Despite the serious pollution issue, natural, PFAS-free alternatives are available and are both climate-friendly and cost-competitive. The article underscores the urgency of adopting the EU Restriction on PFAS to transition to these sustainable alternatives and reduce the ongoing chemical pollution crisis
