"NanoRegulation - Anticipating the Smallest Threats and the Largest Opportunities"

Sacramento, CA | Posted on February 18th, 2009

Please join us for this review of nanomaterials regulation. This event will focus on EPA's current activities, DTSC's chemical information call-in program for nanoscale materials, and industry perspectives. Federal interest in nanomaterials and California's efforts in this area, combined with university and industry developments, provide an opportunity for fostering technological advances that recognize environmental and public health concerns. DTSC's goal is to create a partnership to identify information gaps and research needs aimed at sustainable processes and safe applications. Speakers include:

> Assembly Member Mike Feuer, 42nd District

> Kristan Markey, U.S. EPA Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program

> Richard Denison, Ph.D., Environmental Defense

> Sheila Davis, Silicon Valley Toxic Coalition

> Professor Timothy Malloy, UCLA

> Mark BŁnger, Lux Research

> Mary Beth Miller, Unidym, Inc.

The symposium is free and open to the public. A background in science, chemistry, or physics is not required to attend. Go to DTSC's Nanotechnology web page at www.dtsc.ca.gov/TechnologyDevelopment/Nanotechnology/index.cfm and click on the link to the DTSC Nanotechnology Symposium Series for registration information. Registration is required for on site attendance, and space is limited. Web cast attendees are encouraged to register in order to receive information updates and notification of future symposia.
