Are PFCs the next public water concern?
Like other manmade chemicals that have been polluting our drinking water over the years, perfluorochemicals (PFC) are not naturally occurring chemicals; they were developed in a lab- oratory to meet an industry need. PFCs are carbon chains (typically four or eight carbon atoms) that are bonded to fluorine atoms.
PFCs can be used as an ingredient in a manufacturing process or as part of a finished product. Companies have used them for a number of years for products that resist heat, oil, grease and water.
