Science advisor to the US EPA to speak to industry, academic leaders on sustainability innovations
Date:12/21/2010

TUCSON, Ariz. (December 21, 2010) -- A researcher known widely for his groundbreaking work on the design, manufacture and use of minimally toxic, environmentally friendly chemicals will speak to sustainability practitioners on Jan. 12.

Dr. Paul Anastas, science advisor to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and assistant administrator for the EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD), is speaking at the International Congress on Sustainability Science and Engineering, ICOSSE '11, in Tucson, Ariz. This is only the second meeting of ICOSSE and this conference focuses on sustainably from a systems perspective using scientific and engineering innovations.

"It's no coincidence that the leaders in business are also the leaders in sustainability thinking," Anastas said. "The businesses that thrive, grow, and endure, will be those that best incorporate and operationalize sustainability principles into their core business," he said.

Dr. Anastas, known widely as the "Father of Green Chemistry," has an extensive record of sustainability leadership in government, academia and industry. He'll be speaking to representatives from more than more than 50 companies, five federal agencies and five professional engineering societies at ICOSSE '11.

Hosted by The University of Arizona College of Engineering, the ICOSSE '11 congress takes place January 9 - 13, 2011, at the J.W. Marriott Star Pass Resort in Tucson, Ariz., and attendance is an imperative for sustainability researchers, engineers and practitioners. Professionals from companies who practice sustainability in manufacturing environments will confer for five days with researchers who develop the science and engineering behind commercial recycling, remanufacturing, materials reuse and other larger systems practices.

The conference will be attended by federal agencies such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Institute of Standards and Tec
