The Impacts & Solutions for Chemical Flame Retardant Use in UK Mattresses: Evidence Review


Fidra’s Evidence Review investigates the role of effective chemical management within a circular economy, using chemical flame retardant (CFR) use in mattresses as a case study. The various health and environmental concerns connected with CFRs, coupled with the lack of chemical transparency along supply chains, highlights a significant challenge when considering resource circularity. With bulky waste items, such as mattresses, identified as targets for increased recycling incentives in the UK, this review looks to assess the impacts of CFRs on current mattress recycling practices and possible solutions.
