Hello there, I’m Mike Wilson. I’m a
firefighting foam specialist working as a consultant probably for the last 10
years now, helping foam users look at their demands and what they might need
in terms of firefighting foams, looking at testing, development of foams and
their environmental impacts. So what are the main issues in firefighting foam?
Golly, that’s quite a big quite a big question actually. There’s a lot
happening there in terms of regulatory changes especially
environmental impacts are very much the focus at the moment in terms of fluorinated foam agents particularly, but also there are concerns about fire
performance and whether they’re good enough to meet the life safety
requirements to protect people and property.
