What is the biggest game-changer to impact your field of work?

Sustainability! An example is the sustainability of the flame retardants used in the Electrical & Electronics industry. Due to concerns about potential health hazards, halogen-containing flame retardants are now being phased out and replaced with halogen-free flame retardants. However, the overall performance of currently available halogen-free flame retardants is still inferior to those containing halogen. So, halogen-free flame retardants that can match the performance of their halogen-containing counterparts would be a real game-changer.
