The emergence of novel technologies is an issue that cuts across CIELAP’s different areas of research: new waste incineration technologies; wastewater treatment to address emerging contaminants such as endocrine disrupting substances; and quickly developing biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. CIELAP seeks to convene different stakeholders, including ENGOs and industry, to work together to address the policy questions which arise. This panel discussion will consider a range of questions relating to the environmental sustainability of innovative technologies, such as these:
- How best can diverse stakeholders cooperate to achieve a policy context for the development and use of innovative technologies that ensures environment protection?
- How can the public be educated about the implications of these technologies and engaged in deeper analysis and a meaningful debate?
