Rajender Varma at USEPA has been publishing on 'green' methods for 
nanomaterials and complex organic molecules that can be use in
pharmaceutical applications and production of reagents.  His perspective 
scaling these processes for industrial use would be interesting.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Environmental sustainability in labs?

I am helping to organize two conference presentations on  
sustainability in laboratories, a local one at UVM in October, the  
other at the ACS national meeting next spring. I have some ideas about  
what to include in the discussion, but would appreciate any ideas, or  
even better, web links to specific lab sustainability programs and  
projects that you're aware of. I was able to attend the Labs-21  
conference last September, so I'm familiar with that resource, but I'm  
sure there are others out there that will be of interest.

Thanks for any help with this.
