GreenScreen Certified fire fighting foam

Criteria for fire fighting foams have been updated to cover Class A and B foams, excluding halogens. Clean Production Action’s (CPA) Greenscreen Certified Standard for fire fighting foams first addresses Class B foams in January this year, targeting PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) prevalent in aqueous film forming foams (AFFF). The updated criteria now cover Class A foams, used to fight house fires and forest fires. The criteria exclude presence of any chemical defined by CPA as of “high concern”, including all organohalogens, applicable to any chemical ingredient or any impurity present > 0.01%w/w.
