UC Regents Expected to Approve Labís Expansion

Abstract:
Declaring the lab isn't covered by the city's Manufactured Nanoparticle Disclosure Ordinance, which requires reports on facilities making or using the microscopic technology, the lab "intends to provide on-going information of interest to the City in regard to the Lab's work" in the nano realm.

While acknowledging new programs will lead to significant increases in the amounts of dangerous materials stored and created on site, the lab contends existing rules and laws cover the dangers.

Response to concerns over nanotech in a letter from Pamela Shivola, the EIR replied that the lab has safely worked with nano-sized bacteria and viruses.
