Abstract: Many OEMs have made commitments to eliminate brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from products over the next several years. In order to meet the transition targets, replacement materials must be evaluated based on technical, procurement, and environmental criteria. This paper describes material assessment requirements for various material types and components, with a focus on printed wiring boards (PWBs) and the additional environmental criteria that will be used to help understand whether new materials are better for the environment than the materials they replace.
