Workshop Proceedings

Although some Division-sponsored activities like workshops do not result in consensus reports, discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.

Geologic Capture and Sequestration of Carbon: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Geologic carbon capture and sequestration encompasses approaches for relatively permanent storage of carbon in the Earth's geologic formations. Carbon dioxide (CO2) that has been captured from flue gas or other waste streams as pressurized fluids can be trapped geologically through thermodynamically favorable reactions between CO2 and silicate rocks to create stable mineral carbonates. This mineralized carbon is stored permanently i... More >>

Data Science Opportunities to Transform Chemical Sciences and Engineering: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

New technologies and approaches are generating large, diverse data sets, and data science offers the tools that are needed to interrogate, analyze, and manage these data sets. Biology, material sciences, and other fields have embraced data science tools and used them to gain insights into, for example, gene-environment interactions, molecular mechanisms of disease, and implications of material characteristics on performance. Chemical sciences an... More >>

Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage Approaches for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a technology that integrates biomass conversion to heat, electricity, or liquid or gas fuels with carbon capture and sequestration. BECCS could provide a significant portion of the global energy supply if deployed to its theoretical maximum feasible amount. The future role of BECCS is a subject that divides researchers as estimates of potential future biomass supply vary widely due t... More >>

Understanding Pathways to a Paradigm Shift in Toxicity Testing and Decision-Making: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video Advances in the environmental health sciences -- from high-throughput cell-based in vitro studies to tissue chips to environment-wide association studies -- have led to new approaches for understanding the toxicity of chemicals in humans. These new approaches are faster, less expensive, and potentially more comparable to real-life human exposures than legacy animal toxicity testing approaches. However, man... More >>

The Promise of Genome Editing Tools to Advance Environmental Health Research: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video This January 2018 workshop brought together experts in molecular biology, toxicology, and public health to explore opportunities for using genome (and epigenome) editing technologies in environmental health research. Participants discussed genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9 and their applications to help unravel the mechanisms through which environmental stressors affect human health, including developin...
