At ACS' national meeting, global initiative set to tackle water issues
Date:4/7/2008

wer, better materials.

Accurately assessing risk of chemicals in public drinking water remains a large issue as well, Means said. This lack of trust in tap water has led to an explosion in the bottled water industry, which drains energy resources for the manufacture of plastic and product transportation. Some bottled water, Means said, is no different than regular tap water.

Right now, water is not highly valued unless people dont have it or unless its contaminated, Means said. But the idea of full-cost pricing, which reflects the total cost of water treatment and delivery, could help to create sustainability because it might cause the public to view it differently. In other words, Means said, the more people pay for water, the less likely they are to waste it.

Other speakers at Sundays session were Andrew Ladds, Chief Executive of The Society of Chemical Industry; Roslyn White, chair, ACS Committee on Corporation Associates; and Robert Rich, ACS assistant secretary.

Giis next session on water is in June in New Delhi, India, followed by sessions in Philadelphia, Pa., in August and Shanghai, China, in October. Over the next few years, it will address other important international issues such as waste management and energy technology. Giis roots began 18 months ago as a collaborative effort between Ladds and Madeleine Jacobs, Executive Director and CEO of ACS.
