Bromine Flame Retardants - Life Savers or Eco Villains?

28 Sep 2015

Organised by SCI's Fire and Materials Group the next Fire and Materials Research Seminar will be on the subject of bromine flame retardants and will ask the question, are they life savers or eco villains?

The event will start on 4 November 2015 with an optional tour of the laboratories in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde. The following day we will move to the Glasgow City Hotel (formerly the Thistle) for the seminar.

The seminar is an opportunity for researchers, new post docs and PhD students to share their research in Fire Materials with others from industry and academia.

Visiting industrial speakers will discuss both sides of the argument for and against brominated flame retardants. Speakers include Willem Hofland (EFRA), Adrian Beard (PINFA) and Peter Wragg (Fretwork).

Bringing together young researchers and industrial representatives, this event will enable them to network and ask questions of each other. Awards will be given for best poster/oral presentation by a young researcher (new post doc or PhD student).

An oral and poster competition will take place in the afternoon. Please send a 250 word abstract indicating preference for presentation or poster by 9 October 2015 to

Book your place now to avoid disappointment. All students who register to attend the event will receive one-year’s SCI student membership (worth £25) included in their ticket price. For further details and to register, please click on the link below.
