Flame retardant textiles along with their attributional chemicals end their lifespan into the waste streams like incineration and landfills. This article discusses the available waste-to-energy techniques analyzed for the flame retardant textiles. A continuous seek of new flame retardants for textiles led to a focus on the replacement of previously defined toxic chemicals. This pursue of effectiveness in flame retardant chemicals made it difficult to handle their disposal. Therefore, no sustainable waste treatment available to date for flame retardant textiles. This review also describes the available potentialities of flame retardant textile waste in terms of waste-to-energy techniques, highlighting their limitations and challenges for possible upscale.
