Brominated aromatics from waste handling and recycling processes: The Flame Retardants Project

Abstract [en]

Emissions of brominated aromatics from waste handling and recycling processes are discussed based on a number of investigations and measurements in waste incineration plants, steel plants and at waste landfills. Bromine in municipal waste at present levels does not seem to cause unacceptable environmental risks when treated in incineration plants with good combustion conditions and efficient flue gas cleaning. A significant increase of the bromine flow with the waste may result in an increased production of brominated aromatics. Flame retardants are important as bromine carriers, but not as specific precursor compounds. Scrap-metal re-melting processes are presently studied in an extensive test programme initiated by the industry, and a report is due in the summer of 1993. Accidental fires in waste landfills are discussed with the background of the high emissions of chlorinated aromatics. Significant emisssions of brominated aromatics can also be expected, irrespective of the bromine carrier. Precursors may play a role in this situation. (21 references).
