TAPPI Nano 2019: Second of Two Workshops Focuses on Cellulose Nanomaterial Safety

Set for Tuesday, 4 June, 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm, the three-and-a-half-hour workshop is titled Cellulose Nanomaterial Safety: Building a Bridge from Theory to Practice. Presenters will focus on the occupational and environmental safety demonstration for cellulose nanomaterials. Special emphasis will be placed on the nanoscale properties of the materials.

Workshop concepts will be explored via case studies, presenting current knowledge, theory, and state-of-the-art practices for meeting regulatory requirements. Currently, topics to be covered include:

  • Lifecycle risk assessment
  • Development of safety assessment methods for cellulose nanofibers to support application development
  • Occupational and environmental health data strategies
  • Mapping regulatory and market concerns to evidence in risk assessment of nanomaterials
