Halogenated Flame Retardant Ban in EU

The European Union (EU) intends to ban the use of halogenated flame retardants in the electronic display enclosures of several categories of major household items, including televisions, computers, and refrigerators. Citing the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) the regulations would take effect in March of 2021. While the ban will certainly address the issues of direct human health effects from the flame retardants, a major goal for this initiative is to increase the ability to recycle numerous plastic housings and stands used in everyday items.
