The article highlights a progress report on the Voluntary Emissions Control Action Programme of the European brominated flame-retardant industry as of July 17, 2006. Among the developments is the reduction in emissions to water by the textile industry. It is also expected that the programme will cover majority of decabromodiphenyl ether use in the European Union by the middle of 2007.
