Event Description

Join us for a very special webinar this month! 
 
Topic:  Fired Up about Green Building:  The Latest on Flame Retardants

Description:  In 2004 the Environmental Building News alerted the building community to health and environmental concerns about Halogenated Flame Retardants incorporated into many plastics used in the buildings.   While some of these chemicals have been phased out, many are still in production and used widely in furniture and building products. 

In this talk, our presenters will review the science and outline the current use of these chemicals in building products.   In addition, they will discuss alternative products and construction details that do not rely on Halogenated Flame Retardants.

Free for Build It Green Members, only $10 for non-members.
 

Recertification CEU Value: 1.5 credits
