Fire safety technology to play key role in enabling the circular economy

Five of the seven targeted product value chains announced in the new circular economy action Plan concern flame retardants and fire safety: electronics and ICT, batteries and vehicles, plastics, textiles (EU strategy for 2021) and construction. Proposals include: extending the Ecodesign Directive and for 2021 reviewing RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances in E&E). Mandatory recycled content requirements and plastic waste reduction measures are announced for 2021-2022 for construction materials (within the revision of the Construction Product Regulation) and for vehicles. pinfa also notes that the proposed “Digital logbooks for buildings” should offer a significant opportunity to ensure follow-up of fire safety through renovations (“Renovation Wave” initiative in the Green Deal).
