3M promises remediation of PFOS pollution

Chemicals giant 3M has for a first time provided an extensive response to the PFOS pollution in and around its plant in Zwijndrecht (Antwerp Province).  

Until 2002 3M produced this harmful substance at this location.  In a statement the company now promises to assume its responsibilities with regard to remediation.

The soil pollution recently came to light as a result of works on completing Antwerp’s orbital ring road, the so called Oosterweel Link.  3M is also providing evidence to the Flemish Parliament’s environment select committee.
