*5 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most common plastics and is used in a wide range of products. However, there is concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal, as well as the toxicity of certain plasticizers (e.g., phthalate esters) added to PVCs. Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are used for plastics to make them noncombustible. Some BFRs are raising health concerns while others persist in the environment or are bioaccumulative. There is also concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal.
