Project funding:

COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level. COST does not fund research, but facilitates central coordination, through group meetings, visits of individual scientists, funding seminars, etc. A prerequisite of becoming a member of a COST Action is that the activities to be covered by the COST Action are funded or the necessary funds will be made available through internal financing procedures.

Chair of the Action:

Prof Paul KIEKENS (BE)

Objectives:

The main objectives of this project are to build a European multidisciplinary Knowledge Platform on Sustainable Flame Retardancy, to facilitate the rapid development and commercialisation of fire safe textiles and related materials of low toxicity and ecotoxicity, using available / new technologies, to promote cooperation between researchers from different scientific disciplines.

 

Project Summary:

Replacement of existing flame retardants (FR) with sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives for  textiles in domestic, safety, transport (automotive, rail, aerospace and marine), civil emergency and military, construction and other industries requires a multidisciplinary approach from textile technology to the physics and chemistry of fire. This COST Action will create an international multidisciplinary scientific and technology network on Sustainable Flame Retardancy, developing new innovative flame retardants with low fire toxicity and environmental impacts and halogen-free. A COST Action is ideal to promote the existing cooperation in flame retardancy research, in order to accelerate growth to keep Europe leading the world in this crucial area, taking into account sustainability, safety and health, and to facilitate its commercial exploitation in Europe.

 

Key words: Non-toxic flame retardants (FR), environmental impact and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), Sustainable FR systems, textile (related) materials, halogen-free flame retardants
