Tackling Toxics: The Chemical Class Approach Towards Healthier Products & Materials

Saturday | January 26, 2019 | 12:00 pm — 1:00 pm

UC Berkeley – Davis Hall | Berkeley, CA 94720

Arlene Blum will speak in the Environmental Engineering Department
12 noon-1pm, 534 Davis Hall, UC Berkeley

Rather than addressing the tens of thousands of chemicals in production one at a time, the chemical class approach educates decision makers in government and business about chemical classes containing many of the hazardous substances commonly found in products and materials.

The Green Science Policy Institute developed this approach so that better choices of chemicals can be made, regrettable substitutions can be avoided, and human and environmental health can be protected.
