As a result of this low vapor pressure, PFOS is not expected to volatilize [34]. ) The strong carbon–fluorine bonds in PFOS resist degradation. 7 years; and, as reported by UNEP, repeated tests of biodegradability have failed to demonstrate any signs of biodegradation [34]. UNEP also reports that PFOS is highly bioaccumulative and can biomagnify, albeit not by the “typical” mechanism of partitioning into fatty tissues.

In the words of one authority [95], LCT: … seeks to identify possible improvements to goods and services in the form of lower environmental impacts and reduced use of resources across all life cycle stages.
