Environmental Risk Assessment of GE Plants Under Low-Exposure Conditions
Journal Article 5/31/2013
This paper presents some relevant considerations for conducting an ERA for a GE plant in a low-exposure scenario in the context of the generalized ERA paradigm, building on discussions and case studies presented during a session at ISBGMO 12.
Genetically Engineered Trees for Plantation Forests: Key Considerations for Environmental Risk Assessment
Journal Article 8/5/2013
Forests are vital to the world’s ecological, social, cultural and economic well-being yet sustainable provision of goods and services from forests is increasingly challenged by pressures such as growing demand for wood and other forest products, land conversion and degradation, and climate change.
Problem Formulation in the Environmental Risk Assessment for Genetically Modified Plants
Journal Article 1/1/2009
This paper describes the problem formulation process, whereby policy goals, scope, assessment endpoints, and methodology are developed into an explicitly stated problem and an approach for the environmental risk assessment of genetically modified plants.

Water Recovery and Reuse: Guidelines for Safe Application of Water Conservation Methods in Beverage Production and Food Processing
Many beverage producers and food processors are experiencing multiple pressures to find ways to minimize the total volume of water they use in the production of their product, and also to reduce waste water discharges.
Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Polymer Matrices - Phase 2.5 Report —Comparison of Existing Studies of Release Measurement for MWCNT-Polymer Composites
Currently there are no broadly accepted methods for evaluating release of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) from polymer matrices, which is a crucial component of conducting exposure assessments for nanomaterials in consumer products.
A Review of the Environmental Safety of the Cry3Bb1 Protein
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry3Bb1, a protein encoded by a gene isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of this protein when produced in genetically engineered (GE) maize (Zea mays) plants.
