Walmart Canada’s Sustainability Goals

Room 102, First Floor

10:00 to 10:30 a.m. BREAK

Notwithstanding the best of intentions to convert to renewable energy technologies, the world still depends on fossil fuels for 84% of its primary energy consumption and this is not projected to change significantly out to 2035 at least. Oil tops the list, contributing 35% of world and 39% of U.S. energy. As a globally traded commodity, oil remains highly susceptible to geopolitics, supply disruptions and price volatility. The U.S., being the world’s largest oil consumer, depends on imports for 60% of its consumption, and is therefore particularly vulnerable. Natural gas and coal are not viable large scale substitutes for oil, and have their own limitations. Renewable energy technologies, even if they are scaled several-fold over current levels, will still remain a relatively small component of the total energy picture. This presentation looks at the big picture of energy and some of the issues facing North America and the world going forward.

NPE Surfactants - How Safe is Safe Enough? Barbara Losey, Alkylphenols & Ethoxylates Research Council Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) are highly effective surfactants that have been used in adhesives and sealants for 50 years. Hundreds of studies have been conducted on NPEs and their breakdown products with mammals, fish and other aquatic species; the weight of the scientific evidence continues to support their safety to people and the environment at the concentrations that have been measured both in human tissues and environmental media. Despite this, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a Chemical Action Plan for NPEs and their breakdown product, nonylphenol (NP). The U.S. EPA Design for Environment Program also plans to initiate an alternative assessment process to determine what constitutes a “safer” alternative to NPEs. The implications of U.S. EPA addressing NPEs - and other adhesive and sealant raw materials - under the Chemical Action Plan and Design for Environment Programs will be discussed.

The Emergence of Fluid Applied Membranes for the Building Envelope: Applications, Properties, and Standards Jim Katsaros, DuPont Building Innovations

3:00 to 3:30 p.m.

The Role of Service Life Prediction in Sustainability Determinations Chris White, National Institute of Standards and Technology Sustainability calculations are based on assumptions about the energy required to produce, transport and install in-service items. A critical component of these calculations is the expected service life of the material, component or system. Estimates of the actual in-service performance are not based on scientifically validated methods or procedures. The resulting estimates have significant uncertainty because they are based on past performance or best guess estimates. Here we will detail the economic outcomes of typical choices on a new construction building joint sealant job based on available choices. Following this examination, we will detail the barriers and progress toward achieving a scientifically validated prediction of the in-service performance.

While the use of fluid applied membranes for air and water infiltration protection has been in place for many years, particularly for cementitious and masonry wall systems, technology enhancements have enabled broader, more efficient use of these products. This includes fluid applied membranes with high moisture vapor permeability, lower application temperatures, lower shrinkage, damp surface application, and enhanced elasticity to bridge cracks due to building movement. As a result, new applications for these products have emerged that are in line with commonly accepted Building Science principles. To elaborate, this presentation will report on new standards that have been developed for fluid applied flashing for the direct applied stucco/surface barrier CMU wall system, common to the coastal southeastern U.S. region.

Shape Memory Polymer Based High Performance Reversible Dry Adhesive Systems Tao Xie, General Motors Research & Development Center Liquid based adhesives that require lengthy oven curing are commonly used in an industrial manufacturing environment. This is in sharp contrast to adhesion phenomena in nature for which adhesion is achieved without heating induced curing (e.g. gecko and burdock seeds). Inspired by nature, research has been ongoing towards developing synthetic reversible dry adhesives (RDA). While much progress has been made, typical approaches only lead to synthetic RDA with strength much lower than liquid based adhesives. Utilizing shape memory polymers, we have developed synthetic RDAs with superior reversibility and adhesion strength ravels that of liquid adhesives.

Legal Perspectives with A&S Focus Room 102, First Floor

2:45 to 3:15 p.m.

Legal Issues Attending the Marketing of Sustainable Packaging Philip Moffat, Verdant Law, PLLC In the absence of universally accepted metrics and definitions, marketing “sustainable” packaging is fraught with legal risk. Consumers, competitors, and governments in the United States and elsewhere have numerous tools available to regulate green marketing claims, and they aren’t afraid to use them. Companies hoping to protect their brand, avoid noncompliance, and achieve market acceptance must understand the regulatory requirements. A short review of marketing and enforcement trends, and an analysis of key aspects of the Federal Trade Commission’s recently proposed revisions to the so-called “Green Guides,” will help conference attendees gain the insight necessary to avoid costly and embarrassing compliance errors.

3:15 to 3:45 p.m.

Current Policy & Future Direction of Nano Technology John Monica, Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur LLP Nanotechnology has been billed as a disruptive technology which has the potential to spur the next industrial/technological revolution.

3:45 to 4:15 p.m.

Keep It Secret Keep it Safe - Adhesive Formulas and Trade Secret Law Paul Dalley, Dalley Patent Office Adhesive formulas are traditionally protected by trade secret by adhesive manufacturers. However, trade secret law is especially weak in protecting the manufacturer’s interest. The protection is weak because federal patent law preempts state trade secret law, and thus limits the manufacturer’s protection to the exact recipe down to each raw material vendor. For example under patent law a grade TiO2 from DuPont considered equivalent to a grade of TiO2 from Kronos and would be protected. Under trade secret law the protection would fail. The manufacturer could not prevent manufacture or sale of the competing product. Moreover, the existence of a non-compete would have little or no affect.

Jeff Timm, Jeff Timm Consulting Bioplastics are an integral part of many programs that transform a product or corporate move towards a more sustainable offering. Simply meeting performance property and cost requirements during the conversion from petro-based plastics to bio-based plastics is not enough. There is much that impacts this transformation that must be taken into consideration as initiation or conversion occurs through the cradle-to-cradle analysis. The impact on recycle streams, “truth in advertising” claims, matching the application to the method of the bioplastic’s degradation process and much more are critical components to a successful market offering. This presentation will address the various bioplastic materials used in packaging applications and the impact these new offerings will have on the role of packaging adhesives.
