    They aren't the same thing at all.

    The 2 things simply share the same acronym.

    Polychlorinatedbiphenyls have a bad reputation, for all I know it's

    I don't think printed circuit boards contain polychlorinatedbiphenyls,
    even the "phenolic" type of printed curcuitboard.

    the do howerver contain PBDE

    Poly Bbrominated Diphenyl Ethers or something like that

    Burning any organic substance (even tobacco) releases dangerous toxins,
    so if you do that avoid the smoke or preferable use a high temperature
    furnace that can consume the combustion products fully.

    So-called 'phenolic' boards are a misnomer. It's how they *were* once made.

    A more modern acronym for them is SRBP - meaning 'synthetic resin bonded
    paper'. ( synthetic resin = epoxy glue ).


    The *do* stink when burnt though. I don't think it's especially harmful.
