Safe Foam Disposal

Fire fighting foams can be harmful to the environment, we are approved in the safe disposal of all foams.

The vast majority of fire fighting foams contain fluorinated surfactants, which degrade in the environment to either PFOS or H-PFOS (6:2 FtS).

Fluorosurfactants are the key to foam’s efficiency in fighting a whole range of fires. Fluorosurfactants persist in the environment, i.e. they do not biodegrade and are likely to become toxic. It’s illegal to release them knowingly into groundwater or controlled waters.

The Environment Agency has clear guidelines for compliance with current legislation including the Ground Water Regulations 1998 and the Water Resources Act 1991.
