Clariant: Award for Flame-Retardant

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Clariant its New Chemicals Program P2 Recognition Project Award for the company’s Exolit OP 560, a new-generation non-halogenated flame-retardant. The product, is made by Clariant’s Pigments & Additives Division for polyurethane foams in automotive, furniture and consumer applications. EPA gives this award to products that offer innovative chemistry and significant pollution prevention potential. The award-winning chemicals are identified through EPA’s New Chemicals Program, which screens up to 2500 chemicals a year through the Pre-Manufacture Notice (PMN) P2 screening process as well as during more detailed new chemical reviews. In selecting products to recognize under the program, EPA says it looks for products that promote source reduction as well as safety goal. EPA gave only four P2 Recognition awards this year. Award winners are selected from among all new chemicals submitted to the agency for registration and for which manufacturing or import commenced in the U.S. during 2008.
