Taking an average from 14 Nicaraguan eruptions, the scientists found bromine
and chlorine concentrations in the stratosphere jumped to levels that are equivalent to 200 percent to 300 percent of the 2011 concentrations of those gases.
The facility has developed from producing additives for petrol into producing bromine
intermediates for use in a wide range of consumer products such as pharmaceuticals, dyes,flame retardants,agrochemicals and water purification systems.
The global bromine
market is broadly classified into six segments by applications
is a primary component of flame retardants, drilling fluids, agriculture, water purification and pharmaceutical products.
According to the company, its elemental bromine
and hydrobromic acid products are part of its Performance Chemicals division within the Fine Chemistry business segment and are primarily used in agricultural and pharmaceuticals products.
By comparing the novel MIPAS BrONO2 dataset with model calculations and BrO measurements by SCIAMACHY on Envisat, our general understanding of stratospheric bromine
chemistry has been clearly confirmed," said Michael Hopfner of Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
, when combined with other chemicals to form useful compounds, is used in a variety of products Arkansans use every day -- and may take for granted.

Frost flowers, the delicate crystals that sometimes grow atop fresh sea ice, can be a substantial source of ozone-destroying bromine
in the lower atmosphere near the poles, researchers suggest.
