|Combining Exposure, Health Effects, and Life Cycle Analysis in Alternatives Assessments|
|Ever since chemical alternatives assessment was introduced as a method to separate the not so green from the green chemicals, it has basically been a hazard-based approach to sustainability. The 2014 National Academy of Sciences report identified the need to incorporate exposure assessment, as well as engineering/ life cycle analysis. The presenters have been exploring designing just such a practical integrated approach and, where possible, to do so in a quantitative way. During this session, existing and novel approaches to exposure assessment, which are usable in a risk-based approach, will be demonstrated and an exploration of ways to integrate LCA and exposure assessment will be presented.
