22 October 2007 @ 15:40Bromine Group Counters Greenpeace Report
In an article from MacWorld UK, the Bromine Science and Environmental Forum (BSEF) criticized Greenpeace for its report on Apple’s iPhone.
“All the substances reported by Greenpeace are approved for use, and provide critical performance and safety functions in a wide range of electronic products,” the organisation countered.
“The Greenpeace report does not say which brominated flame retardants are present in the iPhone because it does not know,” the organisation says. “Therefore, the report speculates about what substances might be present, and raises an alarm without any basis for doing so.”
