SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is key to PIN flame retardants

<i class="fas fa-user-shield"></i>
Protecting human lives and property is a social and economic benefit
<i class="far fa-thumbs-up"></i>
Many PIN flame retardants have proven favourable toxicity and ecotoxicity profiles
<i class="far fa-fire"></i>
PIN flame retardants are non-halogenated and can reduce smoke and contribute to less fire gas toxicity
<i class="fab fa-envira"></i>
Preventing and limiting fire also reduces the environmental impacts of smoke and fire gases, and the environmental burden of replacing damaged property
<i class="fas fa-angle-double-right"></i>
All currently commercially used PIN flame retardants are not PBT (persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic) and are not vPvB (very persistent and very bioaccumulative)
<i class="fas fa-recycle"></i>
PIN FRs can be compatible with materials recycling and are not impacted by the obligation to separate and treat specifically electrical and electronic waste plastics containing brominated flame retardants (EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive).
<i class="fas fa-book"></i>
PIN flame retardants comply with existing and emerging regulatory obligations including EU REACH Regulation, EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances in E&E Directive, bans and restrictions on certain halogenated flame retardants.
<i class="far fa-fire-extinguisher"></i>
PIN flame retardants enable fire safety objectives and standards, whilst also respecting chemical regulations, environmental and health objectives.
