Green Chemistry Session Caps-off Successful Year

 

 

Tahoe City, CA - CICC's annual Budget, Planning & Policy Meeting was held this year on October 14th, 15th and 16th at Sunnyside Lodge, Tahoe City, CA.  Some twenty-five CICC Members and guests gathered last week to chart the future course of CICC and to examine important policy issues.

 

During open sessions, CICC members were joined by a number of guests who zeroed in on the Green Chemistry Initiative (GCI) led by the Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC).  The group heard presentations by representatives from DTSC and the Center for Environmental and Occupational Health (COEH) at UC Berkeley.

 

The entire group then divided into teams and worked through an exercise designed to examine the steps involved in the Discovery and Commercialization of a green chemical substitute, and the more near-term activities regarding Continuous Improvement-Pollution Prevention. In addition to skills ranging from toxicology, public health, and academia, the exercise was further informed by the participation of a medical doctor, a member of an influential California environmental NGO, and several industrial and commercial representatives of Sacramento-based trade associations. 

 

CICC filed comments and recommendations regarding the GCI on 11/16/07 based on the information and learnings gained during the formal presentations and small group sessions.  CICC wishes to sincerely thank our guests who participated in the open GCI sessions, as well as our members and corporate sponsors.  Special thanks to Martha Murray and Tom Jacob for serving as small group facilitators.
