Oeko-Institute's Recommendation to add MCCP and TBBPA
This proposal follows a 2021 investigation by the Oeko-Institute (or Öko-Institut), a private environmental research organization, on the safety of seven chemicals. Among those studied, they only proposed that MCCPs and TBBPA become restricted. Namely, they suggest a limit of 0.1% per weight for each substance in a homogeneous material. For TBBPA, the restriction only applies to usage in additive flame retardants.
Let’s discover these two chemicals.
