3M recently announced they will no longer manufacture NOVEC 1230 by end of 2025 due to the presence of PFAS (https://news.3m.com/2022-12-20-3M-to-Exit-PFAS-Manufacturing-by-the-End-of-2025).
Other similar agents, such as FM-200, have similar environmental concerns due to having HCFCs.
Does anyone know a chemical fire suppression agent that doesn't have CFC or PFAS issues?
I know there is a new NFPA standard (770) on hybrid systems and that the Victualic Vortex is one such system, but not sure what other alternatives are out on the market. Thanks in advance.
