Rosemary Coates , Executive Director of the Reshoring Institute, hosts this episode of The Frictionless Supply Chain. In this episode, Lisa Dender, Global Lead for Product Chemical Regulations at IBM, discusses forever chemicals in global supply chains and what we are learning about new regulations in the U.S. and the EU. Lisa is a brilliant Stanford Engineering graduate and a long-term supply chain professional. Lisa says, “Supply Chains rule the world.” This is a continuing discussion regarding PFAS chemicals. These chemicals resist degradation in the environment and accumulate in the body — studies have shown potential adverse human health effects from exposure to some PFAS. New regulations are driving chemical companies to stop producing many of these. Sourcing these products is going to become more difficult and the restrictions on shipping and recycling them are more complex.
