Summary of BFR potential emissions reduction in Europe
Summary of BFR potential emissions reduction in Europe

The European Flame Retardants Association (EFRA) released the 2014 VECAP European Progress Report, stating that there was huge reduction of potential emissions of brominated flame retardants over the past 10 years.

The Voluntary Emissions Control Action program (VECAP), now in its 10th anniversary, is a product stewardship program which aims to reduce potential emissions of brominated flame retardants (BFRs).

The 2014 report shows that potential emissions to land, water and air of the four substances covered by the program (TBBPA, Deca-BDE, HBCD and EBP) have significantly decreased since the beginning of the program; 2014 has also been the second year of EBP reporting, allowing for the first comparison of data.

The survey showed once again a high participation rate for EBP and for TBBPA with a significant 35% drop for potential emissions to land for EBP as well as reported TBBPA potential emissions at default levels for the fourth consecutive year.

The industry's commitment to cover responsibly the disposal of packaging waste also led to the responsible management of all TBBPA, Deca-BDE and HBCD packaging, according to the report.

EFRA product stewardship hopes to ensure that EBP users apply all recommended VECAP best practices to shift the percentage of packaging waste responsibly managed from 97% to 100% as well.
