The Environmental Protection Agency wants to know a lot more about the fate and breakdown of chemicals the DuPont Co. makes or sells for use at its Chambers Works plant in New Jersey and other sites around the globe to make nonstick, nonstain, grease-repellent products (i.e. Teflon).
The EPA stated that Dupont must spend $5 million on a three year study of 9 flourotelomer-based products and chemicals. The research work is part of a $16.5 million penalty because Dupont failed to report water pollution, human blood contamination and toxic hazards connected with the production of Teflon and other non-stick materials
