Chemours, DuPont, Corteva Reach $110 Mln ‘Forever Chemicals’ Ohio Settlement

Chemours, Dupont De Nemours and Corteva have agreed with the U.S. territory of Ohio for $110 million to determine claims related to poisonous “everlastingly synthetic compounds”, the organizations said on Wednesday.

Chemours said it would be liable for half of the settlement costs, while DuPont would give about $39 million.

The understanding proposes Ohio’s cases connecting with the arrival of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, from the organizations’ offices, including the Washington Works office situated along the Ohio-West Virginia line, Chemours said in an explanation.

Chemical makers have confronted a large number of claims as of late over supposed PFAS pollution.

3M concurred in June to pay $10.3 billion to settle many cases that the organization contaminated public drinking water with the synthetic compounds, while Chemours, DuPont and Corteva arrived at a comparable arrangement with U.S. water suppliers for $1.19 billion.
