Previous studies on BFR in WEEE plastic in India indicated the presence of BFR in plastic and how the entire plastic chain was getting contaminated as BFR contaminated plastic was not segregated. This report explores other plastic products which may be using flame retardants especially the toxic BFRs. Two sectors, namely, automobiles and foam were identified for this. The objective was to assess if there were other sectors using the toxic BFRs.
