Title:
Pollution Prevention through Nanotechnology Conference: September 25-26, 2007

Abstract:
EPA invited stakeholders to attend the "Pollution Prevention through Nanotechnology Conference" on September 25-26, 2007, in Arlington , VA -- a forum to exchange ideas and information on using nanotechnology to develop new ways to prevent pollution. Representatives from industry, academia, non-governmental organizations, and government were invited to focus on current practices and potential research areas in nanotechnology that incorporate the concept of pollution prevention in three major areas: Products: Less toxic, less polluting, and wear-resistant; Processes: More efficient and waste-reducing; Energy and Resource Efficiency: Processes and products that use less energy and fewer raw materials because of greater efficiency. The conference featured discussions of nanotechnology life-cycle considerations and the responsible development of nanotechnology.
