A "critical mineral" as defined by the Executive Order is a mineral identified to be (i) a non-fuel mineral or mineral material essential to the economic and national security of the United States. A release of hazardous materials could involve chemical, biological, or radioactive materials.

The ability to respond to a hazardous materials release will depend on many factors, including the amount of material spilled or involved in an incident, the physical, biological and chemical characteristics of the material, the material's health and hazard characteristics, the location of the spill.

One of the drivers of flame retardants in furniture is the California Standard Technical Bulletinwhich is a state flammability standard for upholstered furniture. PBDEs are not chemically bonded to the matrices of the materials.
