Chemical Association Sides with Apple
The Bromine Science and Environmental Forum has blasted Greenpeace for their report of brominated flame retardants, or BFRs, in the iPhone. They lambast the report for its speculative nature:
"The Greenpeace report does not say which brominated flame retardants are present in the iPhone because it does not know. Therefore, the report speculates about what substances might be present, and raises an alarm without any basis for doing so."
