Vireo Advisors and representatives from the Japan National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Research Institute of Science for Safety and Sustainability (RISS) will host a half-day workshop “Cellulose Nanomaterial Safety: Building a Bridge from Theory to Practice” on June 4, 2019 at this year’s TAPPI Nanotechnology Division Conference in Chiba, Japan (June 3 - 7, 2019).
The workshop will focus on the occupational and environmental safety demonstration for cellulose nanomaterials, with special consideration of their nanoscale properties. Concepts will be explored with case studies to present current knowledge, theory, and state-of-the-art practices for meeting regulatory requirements and safety demonstration. Discussions to include: Life Cycle Risk Assessment; Development of safety assessment methods for cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) to support application development; Occupational and Environmental Health Data Strategies (for managing public perception of new technologies); Mapping regulatory and market concerns to scientific evidence in the risk assessment of nanomaterials.
