Residential, workplace, commercial & wildfires claim and injure millions of people and cause trillions of dollars worth of property damage worldwide, considering both natural & man-made resources. The current review paper provides a clean, clear, cohesively complete and convincing review of the emergence of new and sustainable emergent material additives that improve fire-retardant properties and thermal stability, as well as their applications for the safety and protection of life and property in buildings. Globally emerging materials have entered the realms of construction, protection of critical apparatus, and self-protection equipment, thereby revolutionizing the level of fire protection for both people and materials. However, cost, application difficulty, mass-scale availability, and a lack of knowledge have frequently led to a lack of focus on preventing this calamity. In addition, emerging materials technologies can contribute to sustainable development by considerably enhancing the fire-retardant properties of recyclable waste, including both biological waste and industrial waste.

Keywords: Bio-based, Climate change, Circular economy, Eco-Friendly, Emerging material, Flame retardants, Fire safety, Industrial waste management, Sustainability.
