On October 23. on behalf of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) the Conference Green Toxicology will take place at the Empa Akademie in Dübendorf. Following the successful One-Day-Conference at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in November last year, organized by the CAAT office in Baltimore, the follow-up event for the European partners in science, industry and regulatory bodies has been anounced.

Outstanding speakers will address «predictive toxicology» as a future part in all engineering and chemistry production processes. Related to «green chemistry» and «green engineering», «green toxicology» will help to judge a certain process as safe regarding environmental and health-related issues. This will help companies to safe money for processes including probably toxic compounds, which have been developed to a stage just before market entry but then have to be dropped for safety reasons. At this event the participants will have the chance to directly discuss these questions with experts in the field and to think about including these new ideas into your regulatory and processing steps.


If your are interested please fill out the registration form provided on the conference website: www.amiando.com/greentox. Online Registration is open til Oct 20, 2014.
