Environmental Impact Assessment For Socio-Economic Analysis Of Chemicals: Principles And Practice (Technical Report No. 113), Peter Calow Aug 2011

Environmental Impact Assessment For Socio-Economic Analysis Of Chemicals: Principles And Practice (Technical Report No. 113), Peter Calow

Office of Research and Economic Development--Publications

This report describes the requirements for, and illustrates the application of, a methodology for a socio-economic analysis (SEA) especially as it might be adopted in the framework of REACH.

Socio-economic analysis weighs the costs of any restrictions on the production and use of chemicals against the benefits to human health and the environment.

The reasons why industry needs to understand the principles and practices of socioeconomic analysis are: (l) to carry out, where appropriate, a SEA as an argument for authorisation (this is an industry responsibility), and (2) to be able to contribute as stakeholders in socio-economic discussions with regulatory ...

Major Sponsored Programs And Faculty Awards For Research And Creative Activity: July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2011

Office of Research and Economic Development--Publications

This tenth annual “Major Sponsored Programs and Faculty Awards for Research and Creative Activity” booklet highlights the successes of University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty during the fiscal year July 1, 2010-June 30, 2011. It lists the funding sources, projects and investigators on major grants and sponsored program awards received during the year; published books and scholarship; fellowships and other recognitions; startups and intellectual property licenses; and performances and exhibitions in the fine and performing arts. This impressive list grows each year and I am pleased to present evidence of our faculty’s accomplishments. Large grants in a diverse range of ...


Macrocyclic Fragrance Materials—A Screening-Level Environmental Assessment Using Chemical Categorization, Daniel Salvito, Aurelia Lapczynski, Christen Sachse-Vasquez, Colin Mcintosh, Peter Calow, Helmut Greim, Beate Escher Jan 2011

Macrocyclic Fragrance Materials—A Screening-Level Environmental Assessment Using Chemical Categorization, Daniel Salvito, Aurelia Lapczynski, Christen Sachse-Vasquez, Colin Mcintosh, Peter Calow, Helmut Greim, Beate Escher

A screening-level aquatic environmental risk assessment for macrocyclic fragrance materials using a “group approach” is presented using data for 30 macrocyclic fragrance ingredients. In this group approach, conservative estimates of environmental exposure and ecotoxicological effects thresholds for compounds within two subgroups (15 macrocyclic ketones and 15 macrocyclic lactones/lactides) were used to estimate the aquatic ecological risk potential for these subgroups. It is reasonable to separate these fragrance materials into the two subgroups based on the likely metabolic pathway required for biodegradation and on expected different ecotoxicological modes of action. The current volumes of use for the macrocyclic ketones in ...
