VECAP™ - Controlling Emissions, Protecting the Environment, Continuous Improvement - The Voluntary Emissions Control Action Program for Brominated Flame Retardants 2008-01-1284
This paper addresses a proactive product stewardship initiative designed to monitor, manage, and minimize emissions of particular additives used in plastics, including those in automobiles. These plastics additives are brominated flame retardants. They are used in certain automobile plastics and textile applications to help prevent fires from starting, delay the spread of fires, or delay the time to flashover, providing people more time to escape burning vehicles.
The Voluntary Emissions Control Action Plan (VECAP ) is a practical product stewardship initiative designed to manage, monitor, and minimize industrial emissions of brominated flame retardants into the environment.
