CICC Salutes Bryant Fischback, Dow Scientist and CICC Pioneer 1926 - 2010


6/09/10

CICC is saddened by news Wednesday morning of the passing of one of its Pioneers.  Bryant Fischback, retired Dow Chemical scientist, died  6/09/10 with his family at his bedside.  Bryant, a Dow employee for 42 years was the author for 25 patents and actively participated in Dow's visible scientist public outreach program. 

 

He was best known to CICC as its first chairman of the Toxic Substances Sub-Committee.  Bryant was highly effective in the State Capitol on behalf of Dow and CICC regarding science related matters.  He was an industry thought leader on California's pace-setting Pollution Prevention and Source Reduction Legislation (SB-14, 1989).  The concepts behind SB-14 endure today and form the basis for DTSC/CICC's Pollution Prevention Challenge Program.  Bryant was presented with the CICC's Lifetime Achievement Award at the Fall Meeting and Issues Conference in 2005, and was named a CICC Pioneer during CICC's 30th Anniversary Celebration in May 2007.  CICC extends sincerest sympathies to his family.  (Obituary - Contra Costa Times)
