The bromine industry wants to process plastics Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), containing brominated flame-retardants (BFRs), in order to recycle bromine and recover the energy content. This will improve the sustainability of the production and close the bromine loop at the End-Of-Life. Staged-gasification is a thermal process that is potentially suitable for this purpose.
