California DTSC Announces New Date (Sept. 22) for the Public Workshop on Nanomaterials

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) announced a new date for its public workshop on nanomaterials. State budget constraints forced the agency to reschedule the meeting from its original date of August 13. The new date is Wednesday, September 22, 2010. The workshop will be held at the U.S. EPA Region 9 office in San Francisco, California.

Persons who previously registered are not required to re-register. However, DTSC has circulated an email to registrants requesting confirmation of their plans to attend on the new date.

At the workshop, DTSC and EPA will discuss the results of the carbon nanotube (CNT) information call-in that DTSC recently completed, future activities by DTSC on other nanomaterial call-ins, and U.S. EPA efforts related to CNTs and future regulatory plans for other nanomaterials.

Additional information on this workshop will be posted at:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
