Brominated Flame Retardants

Substance Flow Analysis and Assessment of Alternatives


The project consists of an analysis of the flow of brominated flame retardants through the Danish society and an assessment of the possibilities for substitution of the flame retardants. In the substance flow analysis information on the consumption of brominated flame retardants with raw materials and end products is compared to information on the disposal of products containing flame retardants and estimates on the emission of the compounds to the environment. The assessment of alternatives include a review of fire safety requirements, international regulation and eco-label requirements regarding brominated flame retardants.
