SUSTAINABLE FLAME RETARDANT NANOCOMPOSITES

Published

Author(s)

Jeffrey W. Gilman

Abstract

This paper examines the current state of research into sustainable flame retardants with the work on nanocomposites highlighted. The motivations to move away from halogen-based flame retardants are discussed and a number of life-cycle-assessments are mentioned which set the stage for a similar LCA study of nanocomposite flame retardant products. Additives, such as hydrotalcite and cellulose nanofibrils, are proposed as components of potential future sustainable flame retardant nanocomposites.
