Economic assessment and valuations of environmental and health impacts caused by Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and its salts

ABSTRACT - Perfluorooctanoic acid  (PFOA) is being used in fluoropolymer production, as surface treatment agents and for the manufacture of side-chain fluorinated polymers. However, there is evidence that PFOA and its salts have a number of hazardous properties that may cause harm to human health and the environment. This report evaluates existing economic assessments and valuations of impacts arising from PFOA and its salts.
