Environmental Benefits of Thermolon Technology
The development of Thermolon technology is a revolutionary development in non-stick cooking technology because it can be used to manufacture nonstick cookware without Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), resulting in pots and pans that are free from polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE).
Since nonstick cookware was first developed in the 1930s, the manufacturing process has included PFOA and PTFE has been present in the resulting products. As the result of environmental concerns associated with the presence of PFTE in the environment, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented the PFOA Stewardship Program. Under this program, manufacturers are voluntarily agreeing to work toward eliminating the use of PFOA in manufacturing by the year 2015.
