The Energy Efficient Foam Coalition’s mission is to promote the benefits of foam insulation products and to provide factual information that brings a credible, science-based perspective to discussions surrounding the use of flame retardants in rigid foam insulation. The Coalition is part of the American Chemistry Council.

Fire safety is a top priority for the Coalition, and its members believe that flame retardants in foam insulation help to protect occupants and workers from fire-related death and injury, and owners and occupants from property loss. Existing building code fire safety provisions are based on years of careful analysis, extensive testing, and a robust and inclusive public development process, and any assessment of potential health risk associated with the use of flame retardants must be based on scientific research that takes into account both hazard and exposure.
