Overview

Chemicals Alternatives Assessments (CAA) are used around the world to help guide formulators and manufacturers in the selection of less hazardous chemical ingredients.  As part of an AA, standardized approaches are applied to screen chemical ingredients for their intrinsic human health and environmental hazards.  Ingredients of most concern/highest hazard are flagged as a result of an CAA, and over time, products (such as computer components, computer cabling, cleaning products, flame retardants, iPhones, etc.) can be made less hazardous through informed substitution. This book presents the reader with an informed view of the topic from a global pool of experts representing several disciplines.

Product Details

Meet the Author

The series has been edited by Professors Hester and Harrison since it began in 1994.

Professor Roy Harrison OBE is listed by ISI Thomson Scientific (on ISI Web of Knowledge) as a Highly Cited Researcher in the Environmental Science/Ecology category. He has an h-index of 54 (i.e. 54 of his papers have received 54 or more citations in the literature). In 2004 he was appointed OBE for services to environmental science in the New Year Honours List. He was profiled by the Journal of Environmental Monitoring (Vol 5, pp 39N-41N, 2003). Professor Harrison’s research interests lie in the field of environment and human health. His main specialism is in air pollution, from emissions through atmospheric chemical and physical transformations to exposure and effects on human health. Much of this work is designed to inform the development of policy.

Now an emeritus professor, Professor Ron Hester's current activities in chemistry are mainly as an editor and as an external examiner and assessor. He also retains appointments as external examiner and assessor / adviser on courses, individual promotions, and departmental / subject area evaluations both in the UK and abroad.
