Maritime Aviation's Zenova FX Fluid Is Forever Chemical, PFOA / PFOS / PFAS Certified Compliant


Maritime Aviation in partnership with Zenova Group PLC the innovative fire suppression and interdiction solutions company, is pleased to announce that Zenova FX fluid and its components have recently been independently tested by external laboratories and that the Zenova FX range of extinguishers conforms to all current regulations and planned EU regulations regarding PFOA, PFOS and PFAS.



PFOA Regulation

EU 2017/1000 restricts the production, use and emission of PFOA (C8). Under this legislation the maximum levels are set as

·      PFOA 25 ppb (parts per billion)

·      PFOA 1000 ppb


Foam concentrates may be used for firefighting with the following time limits:

·      Up until 31st December 2022 when containment is not possible, and

·      Up until 3rd July 2025 when containment is possible.

 

Zenova FX fluid PFOA and PFOS compliance:

The Zenova FX fluid test results using the EP231X standard targeted testing show that PFOA and PFOS are reported less than the LOR (Limit of Reporting) 0.02mg/kg, equivalent to less than 20ppb.


The Zenova FX extinguisher range is fully compliant with PFOA and PFOS regulations and are legal to use even after the 3rd July 2025.


The Zenova FX fluid test results using the EP231X standard targeted testing show that PFOA are reported less than the LOR (Limit of Reporting) 0.02mg/kg, equivalent to less than 20ppb.


PFAS Regulation

European Chemicals agency (ECHA) has submitted a proposal calling for a maximum of 1ppm (parts per million) of currently regulated PFAS for fire extinguishing liquids. This proposal is still under discussion and is expected to be finalized and approved in 2025.

  

Zenova FX fluid PFAS compliance

The Zenova FX fluid test results using the EP231P targeted test methods show that the trace elements of regulated PFAS are at 0.007mg/kg or 7ppb (parts per billion).


The 7ppb PFAS elements in the Zenova FX fluid are far below the proposed maximum limits of 1ppm for restriction of PFAS being considered by the ECHA.


Zenova FX extinguisher range are fully compliant with the proposed ECHA legislations and are legal to use even after this legislation is passed.


Thomas Melchior, CEO of Zenova Group, commented,  “These independent laboratory tests confirm that the Zenova FX fluid in all of our extinguisher range is not only one of the most effective extinguishing agents but also one of the environmentally cleanest and fully compliant with existing and even with planned future EU legislation.”
