Pinfa-NA (Phosphorus, Inorganic and Nitrogen Flame Retardants Association - North America) is a non-profit trade organization that brings together manufacturers of flame-retardants plastics, major end users and regulatory organizations for the advancement of green FR technologies.  The organization supports fire safety through innovative, reliable and sustainable fire performance solutions, using products based on halogen free phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N) and inorganic compound (metal ions, hydroxides). Pinfa-NA is the North American sister group of Pinfa (, a Sector Group of Cefic (the European Chemical Industry Council). 


The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPEŽ), an international professional member society, provides information on new materials and processing technology either via technical forums, journal publications, or books in which professionals in this field can exchange ideas and air their views.  As the only technical society encompassing all fields of endeavor in materials and processes, SAMPE provides a unique and valuable forum for scientists, engineers, and academicians.

ABOUT State of Washington Department of Ecology:

The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve and enhance Washington’s environment, and promote wise management of our air, land and water for the benefit of current and future generations. In recent time, leaders from businesses, universities, nonprofit organizations, and government joined together to develop a strategy to promote safer chemicals and products within the State of Washington. This resulted in the report, “A Roadmap for Advancing Green Chemistry in Washington State”. A new Green Chemistry center is now in the process of being developed to advance sustainable scientific and technology through collaboration, research, education, and technical assistance.
