International Environmental Nanotechnology Conference: Applications and Implications
Nanomaterials present new opportunities to improve our ability to detect, monitor, control, and clean up environmental pollutants and contaminants and potential new risks to human health and the environment. Plan now to attend the 2008 International Environmental Nanotechnology Conference: Applications and Implications in Chicago. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 Office, Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation, and Office of Research and Development are partnering with a variety of agencies and organizations to host the conference. EPA partners include the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR), U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Department of Energy, National Institutes of Health – National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council. The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from around the world to discuss the nanotechnology applications for remediation of environmental contaminants; the implications of releasing manufactured nanoparticles into the environment, and pollution control and nano-enabled sensing. This conference follows successful U.S. EPA environmental nanotechnology conferences in Washington, DC (2005), and Chicago (2006).
