2007 Annual Progress Reports

You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.

Background

As part of their commitment to the 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program, the eight participating companies agreed to submit annual progress reports on their reductions of PFOA, PFOA precursors and higher homologues in facility emissions and product content. Annual reports are due by October 31, for years 2007 through 2015. Progress is being measured against the baseline data submitted in October of 2006.

2007 Company Progress Reports

All eight companies submitted their progress reports by October 31, 2007. The submissions are presented in PDF file format and are linked from the company name. See the 2007 progress reports and summary tables below.

EPA's Summary Tables for 2007 Company Progress Reports

EPA has summarized the data from progress reports submitted by all the participating companies in their public reports in the four tables that appear below. Additional information may be obtained by viewing the specific company reports above. Download the 2007 Summary Tables here in (PDF) (9 pp, 49.4K)

a % reduction in emissions for Daikin is reported for reduction in ratios of (kg of release)/(kg of product content)
b Year-end run rates
c The quantity of PFOA, PFOA salts and higher homologues in telomer based products and other fluoropolymers that are produced in non-US operations was reported by Asahi as being negligible as compared to the quantity of precursors in those same products.
d Year-end run rates
e All values refer to reductions in the concentration of chemical(s) in the product except where noted that the reduction refers to the reduction in total mass of chemical(s) that is present in the total amount of product produced.
f The quantity of PFOA, PFOA salts and higher homologues in telomer based products and other fluoropolymers that are produced in non-US operations was reported by Asahi as being negligible as compared to the quantity of precursors in those same products.
g % reduction in emissions for Daikin is reported for reduction in ratios of (kg of release)/(kg of product content)
