Is there any chance fluoropolymers or nonstick coatings will be banned?

Absolutely not! Fluoropolymers and nonstick coatings are here to stay. Remember, PFOA is not the same as PTFE. It is not used to make nonstick-coated housewares products, it is just a component in the manufacturing process of fluoropolymers, such as PTFE. In addition, both fluoropolymers and nonstick coatings, for many years, have made significant contributions to human well-being in hundreds of industries, including cookware, bakeware and small appliances, and life would be far less easy, less comfortable, and less worry-free without them.

What is changing are the methods used to manufacture such products, which, as mentioned above, has already reduced the emissions of PFOA significantly, and will virtually eliminate emissions in the near future.
