Decabromodiphenyl ether and other flame retardants in plastic waste destined for recycling

The Norwegian Environment Agency contracted Swerea IVF AB to collect post-consumer plastics destined for recycling and analyse for levels of total bromine, commercial decabromodiphenyl ether (c-decaBDE), other polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and some other selected brominated flame retardants. 

The main objective of the study has been to obtain information on the levels of cdecaBDE in plastic waste streams from electric and electronic waste (WEEE) and End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs). It has also been of interest to see a) how existing sorting and separation methods applied in the industry affects the levels of c-decaBDE in the plastic and b) if the reprocessing of the plastics containing small concentrations of c-decaBDE can cause the formation of POP-BDEs.
