Domestic Chemical Regulation and Achieving Circularity (TSCA and FIFRA), May 18 2022, 12:00 p.m. EDT, via webinar

A circular economy requires new thinking about what products we make, from which materials we make them, and where products go at the end of their useful life. An important but often overlooked aspect of new product development is an understanding of the consequences of the product’s chemical composition and the end-of-life implications of the decisions made at the front end of the process. Working within this framework plays a critical role in building a resilient, dependable, and sustainable system that fosters innovation to develop a circular economy. Register now to view the recording of Lynn L. Bergeson, Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., Kate Sellers, and Mathy Stanislaus as they present “Domestic Chemical Regulation and Achieving Circularity.”
