Towards a ban on fluorine in food paper

Until now, paper manufacturers have used fluorinated resins in the manufacture of greaseproof kraft paper. But recent studies have revealed that these resins have an impact on human health and the environment. These compounds could cause endocrine disruption and contaminate drinking water. When exposed to high temperatures, fluorinated resins can release harmful perfluorinated compounds.

In response to these concerns, numerous regulations have been introduced to restrict the use of fluorinated resins in packaging specifically designed for food contact.

 Fluorine-free food paper, a choice for the future
