Our talk will briefly explain why the environmental community has promoted the removal of halogens, what basic legislation is proposed and how industry standards are addressing the intersection of regulation and technology. We will discuss: the functional value-added with the introduction of halogens in electronics, where halogens are located within electronic assemblies and how the halogens chemically provide these functions. Finally, we will discuss the trade-offs of either removing or limiting their use in electronic assemblies.
