Bromine-based technologies contribute to sustainability including circular solutions, fulfilling a wide range of environmental, social and economic needs in water treatment, mercury emissions control, fire safety, energy storage, pharmaceuticals and rubber. With respect to electronics, Brominated Flame Retardants (BFRs), contribute to fire safety due to the reduced propensity of materials for ignition. This not only means a contribution to saving lives,...

In the home appliance industry, promoting consumer safety and circularity is crucial. For Paolo Falcioni, Director General of APPLiA (Home Appliance Europe), circularity should be present from the manufacturing process, to the consumer use, and all the way to the recycling of the product. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf_m2I9iAkg According to Falcioni, home appliances can help contribute to the circular economy by enabling more people to...

Every year around 5,000 people die and around 50,000 people are injured in residential fires across the EU¹, presenting a danger to families and their livelihoods. Brominated flame retardants can help prevent or slow down fires when used in consumer products such as furniture and electronics. When a fire breaks out in a home, every second counts to help people, especially...

With the world population rapidly increasing, more people around the world will require energy to support their lifestyles. To meet this growing energy demand, we need solutions that can support us now and in the future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0bw5JQDtg4 Renewable energy is already available and widely in use. Green technologies such as wind farms and solar panels enable consumers to use energy while lowering...

The chemical industry has been playing an essential role during the COVID-19 crisis. Chemical companies and leading organisations have been playing a major role in ensuring the production and the supply chains for products, such as disinfectants and health equipment, essential for combatting COVID-19 as well as the value chains comprising those products. COVID-19 severely attacks the lungs and respiratory system. For...

Join us next week on 24 June from 13.00 – 14.00 for our webinar panel discussion on ‘One substance, One assessment’ as part of our chemicals policy debate series ‘Under the Microscope by Rud Pedersen’. With the European Commission consulting on its Sustainable Chemicals Strategy road map we will be discussing the concept of ‘One substance, One assessment’ as the...
