Introduction to Nanomaterials - Identifying and Managing Health, Safety and Environmental Risks

Duration: 60 Minutes
In general physics' terms, a nanomaterial is any material that has an average particle size of 1 - 100 nanometers (nm), both naturally occurring and manmade. Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) have been deliberately synthesized or manufactured to have at least one external dimension in the nanoscale, and exhibit resultant unique properties. This webinar will focus on ENMs.
Introduction to Nanomaterials
Instructor: Carole A. LeBlanc
Product ID: 500383

The term 'nanotechnology' was first defined by Norio Taniguchi at Tokyo Science University in 1974. The 'buckyball' (a hollow sphere composed entirely of carbon) and carbon nanotubes were discovered in 1985 and 1991, respectively.

Why Should you Attend:
Nanotechnology has already begun to revolutionize not only science and research, but everyday consumer products. Any person interested in how this science works, and its potential impacts on our society, should attend this webinar.

Objectives of the Presentation:
To provide an overview of the science behind nanomaterials.

Who can Benefit:
  • State and local governments concerned about the growing use of ENMs
  • Non-profit organizations (NGOs) with a scientific or regulatory mission
  • Organizations and trade associations that interface with regulatory agencies, in particular, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Companies intending to market ENMs in different countries, under different regulatory regimes.

Instructor Profile:
Dr. Carole LeBlanc is the former Director of Engineering and Research for the Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). PHMSA’s mission is to protect people and the environment from the risk inherent in the transportation of hazardous materials – by pipeline and other modes of transportation. In this role, she directed the hazardous materials technology programs in support of the overall goals and objectives of PHMSA's strategic plan. Before coming to DOT in 2012, Dr. LeBlanc was the Special Expert on Emerging Contaminants for the Department of Defense (DoD). Her job was to provide technical support for material management policies developed by DoD, drawing upon her chemical expertise and her experience in toxics use reduction, a source-based form of pollution prevention, to facilitate the Military Departments’ efforts in mission sustainment. In 2007, she was awarded a Defense Special Act Award for her part in the formation of DoD’s toxic and hazardous chemicals reduction plan, mandated by Presidential Executive Order 13423.

Prior to her 5-year appointment at the Pentagon, she was the Director of the Surface Solutions Laboratory, the research facility of the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. There, she administered the state’s testing program for promoting safer alternatives to hazardous solvents, based on Massachusetts’ Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) of 1989. She was part of the TURA team that by 1998 had helped to reduce the amount of toxic waste generated in the state by 50%. In 1999, the TURA program would receive the prestigious Ford Foundation Innovations in American Government Award in recognition of this work. All three positions necessarily focused on different elements of the lifecycle of hazardous materials.

Dr. LeBlanc is now an adjunct Professor at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine in the Environmental Studies Department.
