globalFACT debunks the most common TFA myths in FACT CHECK: Setting the Record Straight on TFA. For example…
❌ MYTH: TFA is an issue due to its accumulation in organisms and the environment.
✅ FACT: TFA does NOT bioconcentrate in organisms or biomagnify in the food chain.
“TFA is a fluorinated compound that does not bioconcentrate in aquatic organisms and does not biomagnify in the food chain. The 2018 Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion provides an overall perspective and concluded that: ‘The current and estimated future concentrations of TFA and its salts resulting from degradation of HCFCs, HFCs, and HFOs do not pose any known significant risk to human or ecosystem health.’”
