Solutions for Firefighting Foam Transition

Solutions for Firefighting Foam Transition

On-Demand Recorded March 2024
PFAS are being increasingly regulated in drinking water and firefighting foams that contain PFAS, such as aqueous film forming foams (AFFF), can be replaced with biodegradable alternatives. Many sectors are engaged in foam transition including aviation, oil & chemical, military, and municipal organizations.

This webinar will cover challenges and solutions when planning and imple­ment­ing foam transition, including:

  • Fire tests demon­strat­ing that synthetic fluorine free fire­fight­ing (SFFF) foams are effective at extin­guish­ing Class B fires
  • Evolving regulation of fluorinated fire­fight­ing foams and PFAS 
  • Decon­t­a­m­i­na­tion of fire suppression systems 
  • Fire engineering compliant fire suppression systems using SFFF
