More reports from attendees at last week's sold out, three-day Sustainable Futures (SF) workshop, co-sponsored by the Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG®), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and George Washington University (GWU):
"I would highly recommend SF training to others. The risk-screening models are a great tool that can be utilized to identify and reduce risk early in the product development process. The instructors at the workshop were thorough and made themselves available to answer all questions." -- Ed Troche, Regulatory Specialist, Nalco
"Why not learn to screen your chemicals? That's the value of [SF Training] -- to identify challenges before your submit." -- Dale Strother, ToxSolve
"[The SF workshop] was well prepared, and certainly well presented. [It] offered a nice overview of the entire process of EPA's assessment of industrial chemicals. I was particularly enlightened as to where EPA chooses to be conservative in its industrial handling estimates." -- Robert W. Griffith, Nissan Chemical America Corporation
"The hands-on sessions are very helpful, walking through the models [was] much more efficient compared to exploring them on my own. The real scenarios are very relevant to some situations I will be working with so it's a great learning experience." -- Xinyu (Candy) Yang, Nalco
BRAG, an affiliate of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) is in the early planning stages of a West Coast SF training workshop this Fall. If you would like to receive information regarding the next workshop, please e-mail Heidi Lewis and ask to be put on the list.
