Green Chemistry: Practical Decision-Making Tools for Identifying Safer Alternatives

Workshop dates October 1st & 2nd 2007

NEW:  Go to this website to download speaker presentations and other documents

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) and the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) of the University of California Berkeley are collaborating on a workshop on decision-making tools for predicting and rapidly evaluating the toxicity and exposure potential of chemical pollutants.  The primary goals of this workshop, which is part of Cal/EPA's Green Chemistry Initiative, are to: discuss the types of data that are needed for identifying problem chemicals and safer alternatives, and identify and review existing and emerging tools used in predicting toxicity, environmental fate and exposure, and prioritizing chemical hazards.  Discussing these issues with leading experts will help California grapple with the challenge of how to effectively flag problem chemicals and determine better alternatives.  The results of the meeting will feed into the development of a framework for identifying safer alternatives to toxic chemicals that will incorporate the best features of existing and emerging decision-making tools.

Practical Decision-Making Tools for Identifying Safer Alternatives
Date:  October 1 and 2, 2007
Location:  Byron Sher Auditorium, Cal/EPA Building, 1001 I Street, Sacramento
