Summary

Supported by the Refractory Ceramic Fibers Coalition (RCFC) member companies, the refractory ceramic fiber (RCF) product stewardship program provides valuable information to end users regarding health study results, regulatory initiatives, handling practices, disposal, and the overall safe management of RCF materials. The development of an effective product stewardship program was referred to by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as “a significant step toward risk reduction.” This discussion will briefly summarize RCF health issues and review the development and function of the seven key elements of product stewardship for refractory ceramic fibers.
