WATER AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE CHEMICAL SCIENCES
Monday-Tuesday, June 2-3, 2003
Beckman Center, Irvine California
A Workshop Convened by the Chemical Sciences Roundtable
Organizers: Parry M. Norling (RAND) and Frankie Wood-Black (ConocoPhillips)
The workshop will bring together leaders in chemistry, chemical engineering and water science
and technology from government, academia, and the not-for-profit sector to explore the
opportunities in the chemical sciences to help resolve water-related technical needs and issues
such as monitoring, purification, waste treatment, and conservation.
MONDAY JUNE 2, 2003
SESSION 1. CONTEXT AND OVERVIEW. What role does water play in sustainable development, what are the impacts of
inadequate water supplies in various human activities, and what can be done to increase the supply of pure fresh water?
Alan D. Hecht, White House Council on Environmental Quality
Water: A Critical Part of Our Global Agenda
Dennis J. Hjeresen, Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Green Chemistry Institute

David P. Krabbenhoft, U.S. Geological Survey, Water Resources Division
Methylmercury Contamination of Aquatic Ecosystems: A Widespread Problem with Many Challenges for the Chemical
Sciences
SESSION 2. WATER QUALITY AND SUPPLY: ANALYSIS AND TREATMENT. What are the successful approaches and needs
for new approaches— membrane processes, photochemical processes, nanotechnologies, use of newer flocculants,
oxidants, bioprocesses, and green chemistry—in the monitoring, analysis, and treatment of water?
