    BPA was first created by a German scientist, with the results published in 1905. Despite the discovery, he did not suggest any applications for his new product. In 1953, a different German scientist and an American scientist both independently came up with a way to use BPA to create a new plastic material called polycarbonate, with many practical uses. Four years later, in 1957, America started producing polycarbonate products commercially, with Europe following suit a year later. Epoxy resins, also containing BPA, were developed and produced commercially during the 1950’s as well. BPA has been around for over 100 years, but has been a strong component of our commercially produced products for more than 50 years, a long time!
