Brominated flame retardant: environmental and exposed
Since Antiquity, men have used chemicals to protect their goods against fire. Effective and easy to use, brominated flame retardants are used since decades massively in plastic industry. Such like other organohalogenated compounds, brominated flame retardants are very persistent in the environment and able to accumulate along the food chain.

Many flame retardants are persistent and can undergo long-range environmental transport. The effects of flame retardants in the environment Flame retardants migrate out of products and accumulate in the environment. Saunders DM, Podaima M, Wiseman S, Giesy JP. Brominated flame retardants: cause for concern?
Brominated flame retardants: their potential impacts
– To give an overview of the mechanisms by which brominated flame retardants (BFRs) used in the electronics industry enter, and are transported, in the environment. The potential impacts of BFRs on living organisms are also outlined., – The paper provides an explanation of the environmental issues and impacts on living organisms of BFRs
Technical Fact Sheet - United States Environmental Protection
Classes of brominated hydrocarbons that serve as flame retardants for electrical equipment, electronic devices, furniture, textiles and other household products. Structurally similar and exhibit low to moderate volatility. Lower brominated congeners of PBDE tend to bioaccumulate more than higher brominated congeners.
Brominated Organic Micropollutants—Igniting the Flame
The European Commission has reviewed the use of some of these compounds and has recommended a ban on some commercial mixtures. There is corresponding legislation in individual countries against production and usage. This article reviews the ecological and environmental impact of the use of PBDEs, PBBs and other brominated flame retardants.
