Research on BFR products aid manufacturers
Posted: May 12, 2006
Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are a group of chemicals added to many products, including computers, TVs and household textiles, in order to reduce fire risk. The widespread production and use of BFRs are raising concerns due to evidence of increasing contamination of the environment, wildlife, and people; and limited knowledge of potential effects heighten the importance of identifying emerging issues associated with the use of BFRs.
