The European passenger car market grew by 2.4% during the first three months...

Together with the global demand for energy, the importance of sustainable and flexible energy systems and storage solutions is on the rise. Are you ready to join the energy storage debate? BSEF will be one of the exhibitors at ESGC (Energy Storage Global Conference) this year. This third edition will be held in Brussels, Belgium from the 24th until the 26th...

VECAP, The Voluntary Emissions Control Action Programme, is a programme developed by BSEF members to demonstrate that the flame retardant industry is doing its share to control the emissions of flame retardants at the production and use stages. VECAP encourages companies to practice environmentally responsible handling of chemicals, including brominated flame retardants (BFRs).   What is VECAP? VECAP was devised as a programme to...

“Meet the experts” is a new section in our newsletter that will be recurring in future editions. This time we focus on one of today’s biggest challenges in the ongoing energy transition: effective and sustainabe capture and storage of electrical energy for future use. Solving the energy storage problem The number of electronic devices has tripled since 1970, with energy consumption going...

How can the EU help cities face environmental challenges and become better places to live and work? That was the theme of the EU Green Week, held from 21st to 25th May 2018 in the member states. Bromine-based solutions can help with many of these challenges and create a more-sustainable, greener future.   Europe's biggest green-policy conference The EU Green Week 2018 is Europe's biggest annual...

Summer’s here, conjuring up images of long days by the swimming pool. However, microorganisms, algae and bacteria love the nice weather and cool water as much as we do. So how can we effectively purify and disinfect water?   Sustainable water management Water is a precious resource. Sustainably managing water is one of today’s greatest challenges. Microorganisms, algae and bacteria can seriously threaten human...
