100 to 130 participants joined the three sessions of pinfa’s webinar on “What are Safe and Sustainable Flame Retardants?” (one hour sessions on each of 27, 28 and 30th June 2022). Leading NGOs, experts and downstream users (TCO, ChemForward, ChemSec, Google, Schneider Electric, Peter Fisk) underlined the need to move faster towards sustainable and safe flame retardants, with chemical data and recognised chemical assessment schemes seen as essential to achieve this. The PIN flame retardant industry, and European chemical industry (Cefic), identify this as an opportunity, to move towards “safe and sustainable flame retardants”, and welcomes the EU Green Deal initiatives on sustainable chemicals, recycling and sustainable products. pinfa and its member companies underlined the importance of working with downstream users and the necessity for FRs to be durable, to enable prolonged product lifetimes and recycling.
