Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies Publication Highlights Growing Need for Safe Flame Retardants
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Flameret, Inc. (FLRE:OTCBB) a leading provider of flame retardant products to various industries, announced today that an article was published in Yale Environment 360 highlighting the dangers of an existing class of fire retardant chemicals which are used in electronics, upholstery, carpets, textiles, insulation, vehicle and airplane parts, children’s products, and many other products.
According to the article, there is mounting, credible scientific evidence that levels of these chemicals are doubling in the blood of North Americans every 2 to 5 years for several decades.
Here are the highlights from the article:
1. Current regulations throughout the world to ban the use of toxic flame retardant products may not be succeeding.
2. Significant numbers of infants are exposed to toxic flame retardant chemicals including known carcinogens on a daily basis.
3. Many new halogenated flame retardants with chemical compositions and structures similar to those that are now regulated continue to enter the market.
4. Certain industries are so reliant on flame retardant products that as an example, the article sites that as much as one third of the weight of plastics used in some commercial airplanes are derived from the existing flame retardant composition.
5. Maternal exposure to a widely-used type of flame retardant, PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers), may impact fetal development and health.

Christopher Glover, Chief Executive Officer of Flameret, Inc. commented, “The market for flame retardant products is over $4 billion worldwide and we believe this is a very conservative estimate. Our products are non-toxic, odorless, non-staining and fully biodegradable.”
