pinfa roadmap for Chemicals Sustainability

pinfa has outlined a Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability roadmap for FRs to address Green Deal opportunities. The EU Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, part of the Green Deal, was published in October 2020 and foresees far-reaching developments in chemicals regulation and policies in Europe (summary pinfa Newsletter n°119). This will place pressure on those flame retardants which show environmental toxicity, persistence, mobility, bioaccumulation or endocrine disruption.
pinfa thus sees important opportunities for PIN FRs. pinfa’s outline roadmap for Chemicals Sustainability for FRs was elaborated in discussion with pinfa members, in dialogue with the pinfa Advisory Board which brings together independent experts and scientists from varying fields of material sciences, fire safety, environmental sciences, and toxicology. This outline roadmap will be implemented in 2022, in close collaboration with Cefic and with value chain stakeholders, through a dedicated pinfa project with specific studies, leading to definition of policy proposals and stewardship actions across the PIN flame retardant industry.
