Home > Press > EPA Discusses Nanotech Regulation on Bourne Report Radio Show

Abstract:
Jim Willis, Director of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Chemical Control Division, was a featured guest this week on the Bourne Report, a talk radio program that discusses the latest developments in nanotechnology. Mr. Willis spoke at length about the regulation of nanomaterials under the Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA), and provided details about the EPA's Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program.

EPA Discusses Nanotech Regulation on Bourne Report Radio Show

Scottsdale, AZ | Posted on April 15th, 2008

"The EPA is widely perceived to be inadequately regulating nanomaterials," said Marlene Bourne, host of the Bourne Report. "Inviting the EPA to talk in detail about TSCA, how it applies to nanomaterials and the regulatory process involved, gives the public an opportunity to become far more informed about the EPA's regulatory efforts. While some may still disagree as to whether the agency is going far enough in its regulation of nanotechnology, the discussion was both educational and a real eye-opener."

The Bourne Report is a weekly talk radio program that discusses today's coolest emerging technologies and end-use trends, as well as their impact on society. The show airs Sunday afternoons from 3-4 pm on Independent 1310 KXAM in Phoenix and streams live to listeners across the United States and around the world. Each show is also archived after it airs live; to listen, visit: www.bournereport.com or subscribe to Bourne Report Radio via iTunes.

Previous/upcoming topics include: artificial skin, fake dirt, nanoplastics, solar cells, hydrogen power, "smart" orthodontics, robotics, silver nanoparticles and socks, wireless sensing, diamonds, cosmetic surgery, smart homes, car windshields, medicine, RFID, GPS, smart fabrics/electronic textiles, ink jet printing, and the science of hair at the nanoscale.

The Bourne Report is produced and hosted by Marlene Bourne, a respected industry analyst who is internationally recognized as one of the leading experts on MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) and its convergence with nanotechnology. Known for her insightful, thought-provoking commentary, Marlene is highly regarded for her unique ability to present complex information in a conversational manner that captivates audiences. The author of two books, A Consumer's Guide to MEMS & Nanotechnology (2007) and MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids (2007), Marlene's third book, "The Future of Healthcare: BioMEMS and Nanomedicine," will be published in late 2008. The books are available on Amazon.com.
