Abstract:
The beneficial effects of nanotechnology innovation on human health and the environment are the focus of a comprehensive report to be presented at the Nano Science and Technology Institute's Nanotech Conference and Expo 2010 in Anaheim, CA, June 21-24, 2010.

Comprehensive Report’s Focus is on Nanotechnology, Health and the Environment: Greenberg Traurig and Intertox to Present

Anaheim, CA | Posted on June 12th, 2010

The report, titled "Nanotechnology, Health and the Environment," was authored by shareholders of the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP; the managing director of Intertox, Inc., a scientific consulting and research firm specializing in nanotechnology-related issues; and the chief executive officer of BPT Pharmaceuticals. It summarizes the nanotechnology-related efforts of U.S. government and industry regarding nanotechnology environmental, health and safety (EHS) policy.

Nanotechnology may substantially improve the quality of both human life and the natural environment, according to the authors of the report: Chinh H. Pham, Chair of Greenberg Traurig's Nanotechnology Practice; Reed D. Rubinstein, Shareholder in the Environmental and Administrative Law Practice at Greenberg Traurig in Washington, D.C.; Dr. Richard C. Pleus, Managing Director of Intertox; and Lynn Foster, CEO of BPT Pharmaceuticals, who was previously at Greenberg Traurig. The EHS risks of nanotechnology require additional study. However, initial indications are that these risks are generally remote, speculative, and manageable, according to the report.
