As a non-profit organization, RFHEE supports joint research projects sponsored by industry, public agencies, academia and other foundations. Working with these groups, RFHEE furnishes crucial funding for pertinent, peer-reviewed scientific research and provides an important information resource for public policy makers.

Since its inception in 1995, RFHEE has awarded $7.2 million dollars in support of experimental research, expert panels and critical reviews of scientific literature relevant to chlorine chemistry. RFHEE supports projects that:

  • Answer testable hypotheses
  • Are peer-reviewed and published in reputable scientific journals
  • Inform science and public health policies and decisions

To date, its efforts have included issues ranging from breast cancer and developmental health effects to the environmental fates of chlorinated compounds.

The RFHEE prioritizes its research agenda by supporting projects that address important public health questions. RFHEE-funded projects focus on the following broad areas of research:

  • Human Health and Ecologic Effects
  • Risk Assessment
  • Chemical Exposure and Sources
  • Mixtures of Chlorinated Compounds
