Inadvertently Produced PCBs in Inks and Pigments Workshop Partnerships for Innovation Solutions

October 8th - 9th, 2019 | Spokane, Washington

The Spokane River Regional Toxics Task Force (SRRTTF) is exploring actions to keep PCBs from entering the Spokane River. As part of this effort, the Task Force is co-hosting an informational workshop to address inadvertent PCBs in inks and pigments and the downstream products that are manufactured using those inks and pigments. 

The workshop will convene leaders working collaboratively to explore innovative reduction strategies. Invited participants include: SRRTTF members, pigment and ink manufacturers, industries that utilize pigments and inks, downstream suppliers of paper and packaging, industry organizations, nongovernmental organizations, recyclers, procurement experts and regulators.

The workshop is being co-sponsored by the SRRTTF, the Washington State Department of Ecology, and Northwest Green Chemistry (NGC)

SETAC North America 

November 3rd - 7th, 2019 | Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The meeting will emphasize the need for environmental scientists and managers from all sectors (e.g., academia, business, government, non-profit, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations) to work together at a global scale to address shared environmental challenges. Under such a paradigm, discrete technical advances would be leveraged to create harmonized approaches towards mutual solutions. The meeting offers opportunities to focus on transboundary issues within a holistic system approach.
