FOAM SYSTEM Updates
An assessment of fluorine free, Class B firefighting foams. The results were published in Jan 2020. C6 AR-AFFF has superior firefighting capabilities compared to Flourine Free Foams(FFF). FFF firefighting capabilities varied depending on manufacturer. FFF required between 2-7 times both the rates and the densities of the AR-AFFF to for similar results against the fires.(full report)
Fluorinated Foams were completly banned in South Australia from Jan 2020. Bulk volumes of foam (or wash waters) may only be transported by an EPA licensed carrier. No Release of foams to the environment – decanting must be in a bunded area. Disposal of foam requires a licensed facility.(full document)
The Aust Government is developing a PFAS National Environmental Plan.
