Nanotechnology Today will focus on State regulation of nanotechnology in the absence of national regulation, the impact of nanomaterial regulation in Europe and North America, environmental applications of nanotechnology, and benefits and risk communication for nanomaterials.

This series features respected nanotechnology experts who work at the forefront of nanotechnology applications and implications. Attend the live webinar and participate in a question and answer session with the presenters.
 
THE 2010 NANOTECHNOLOGY TODAY WEBINAR SERIES:
All webinars are scheduled from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm (U.S. Eastern)
 
July 20 -- State Regulation of Nanotechnology: What's Next?
*Now available on-demand as a recording you can access 24/7 through the end of 2010.

No State has been more active than California in evaluating the need to regulate nanoscale products. With one data call-in for carbon nanotubes under its belt, what have we learned from the California initiative? What materials are in line for review? What are the benefits to participating in the DTSC process or other voluntary initiatives? What are the legislators and regulatory officials planning in other states? Most stakeholders would prefer to avoid a patchwork quilt of regulations but the proposed legislative changes to TSCA won't change the status quo. This webinar will discuss the initiatives across the U.S. and it will give participants a better understanding of their impact.

Presented by:
Moderator and Speaker: John DiLoreto, NanoReg®
Guest Speaker: Dr. Jeffrey Wong, Chief Scientist, California Department of Toxic Substances Control 

September 1 -- Manufactured Nanomaterials: Europe and North America Forecast Webinar
*Now available on-demand as a recording you can access 24/7 through the end of 2010.
In the United States, new chemical reform legislation in Congress has a "nano-clause". Europe is already addressing nanoscale commercial products through REACH. Health Canada and the European Commission are seeking to define the term "nanomaterial". Is there any attempt at coordination and is harmonization a realistic objective? Hear the views from both sides of the Pond in this second installment in the 2010 Nanotechnology Today webinar series.

Presented by:
Moderator and Speaker: Martha Marrapese, Partner, Keller and Heckman LLP
Guest Speaker: Dr. Steffi Friedrichs, Director, Nanotechnologies Industry Association

October 6 --Environmental Applications of Nanotechnology: Going Green Webinar
The concept of "Green Nano" is our ability to design industrial processes and everyday products with the protection of human health and the environment in the forefront of the design phase. It describes the development of products that have environmental applications. This webinar will address how to design "green" products and showcase technologies that show promise for environmentally beneficial applications, such as environmental clean up, water purification, and energy efficiency. Hear from two of the leading experts in the area of Green Nano and find out how integration of these approaches can benefit your business.

Presented by:
Moderator: John DiLoreto, NanoReg®
Guest Speakers: Bettye Maddux, Ph.D., ONAMI 
Olga Koper, Ph.D., NanoScale Corp., VP Technology and CTO

November 16 --Benefits and Risk Communication for Nanomaterials Webinar
What is the current outlook for companies engaged in nanotechnology, and what risk communication tools are available to assist the people who work in companies that engage in nanotechnology?  Learn about the most current approaches to MSDS writing, control banding, and related business communication strategies to assist the occupational safety and health professional.  In addition, there are over 800 manufactured consumer products currently listed on the Project on Emerging Technologies website.  The International Standards Organization and CEN, the European Communities on Standardization, are developing a broad approach to a labeling standard for products containing manufactured nano-objects.  This webinar also is designed to address how to communicate effectively on benefits and risks with the public. 

Presented by:
Moderator: Martha Marrapese, Partner, Keller and Heckman LLP
Guest Speakers: Christopher Bell, Partner, Sidley Austin
Steve Arndt, Principal, Exponet®
