Chemours reports GenX, PFAS chemicals in water

Chemours' (formerly DuPont Fayetteville Works) 2016 annual report to government officials, showing their 2015 data, specified repeatedly that chemicals in the "acid fluoride family" were being transferred to water (via the scrubbers) at their Fluorochemicals Plant, resulting in PFAS pollutants (PFAAs, fluorocarbons, GenX and PFAS chemicals) in the wastewater discharged to the Cape Fear River. The Cape Fear River is a source of drinking water for Wilmington and many other downstream communities. Chemours' report was submitted to North Carolina government officials during the first half of 2005.

Several pages from Chemours' report have been highlighted below. They show acid fluoride chemicals transferred to the wastewater via DuPont's scrubbers, resulting in GenX and PFAS chemical pollutants being discharged from their Fluorochemicals Plant near Fayetteville, NC.
