In this research, extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), such as EPS<sub>flocs</sub> and EPS<sub>granules</sub>, were successfully extracted from activated and aerobic granular sludge, respectively, and tested as bio-based flame retardant materials. Flax fabric was coated by the biopolymeric substances and its flammability was evaluated...
