On 7, 8 & 9 November 2007, the Centro Para Prevenção da Poluição (C3P) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) hosted a technical workshop at the Escola Superior de Turismo e Tecnologia do Mar (School of Maritime Technology) in Peniche, Portugal.  This event was supported by the Secretaria de Estado do Ambiente, and under the High Patronage of His Excellency the President of Portugal.

 

Escola Superior de Turismo e Tecnologia do Mar de Peniche

 

The three-day workshop provided an excellent forum to receive up-to-date information on environmental and energy concerns that are common to Portuguese, European and U.S. industries, as well as information on ongoing and future projects. Of particular emphasis, several technical sessions were devoted to the environmental and energy improvements planned for the Berlenga Island.

 

In total, 243 individuals from eight countries attended the technical workshop.  More than 45 international scientists, technologists, and engineering experts presented PowerPoint slides on topics ranging from island sustainability, renewable energies to restricted chemicals and advances in materials and conventional processes, green chemistry, lead-free soldering and advances in coatings and coating removal.

 

This exchange of solutions provided direct and tangible benefit to attendees from academia, defense, and commercial industries.

 

The workshop began with welcoming comments from the President of the Escola Superior de Tecnologia do Mar, Prof. Júlio Coelho, and from the Mayor of Peniche, Dr. António José Correia. Welcome remarks were also made by Mr. Alfred Hoffman, U.S. Ambassador in Lisbon. A video with a statement from the Prof. Humberto Rosa, Secretary of State for the Environment was shown.

 

Welcome Remarks

 

NASA Assistant Administrator, US Ambassador

 

The C3P Director, General (ret.) Pelagio Castelo Branco, began by thanking all participants and guest-speakers for their attendance and contributions, and showed his appreciation for the efforts and collaboration of the Escola Superior de Tecnologia do Mar, the host and co-organizer of the Workshop, as well as to the Instituto Politécnico de Leiria, under which the Escola is managed. General Branco also highlightd those partnerships C3P has begun to form with manufacturers, industry associations, universities, and testing and engineering centers of excellence throughout the European Union.  Ms. Olga Dominguez, Assistant Administrator for the Office of Infrastructure and Administration at NASA, discussed the importance of agencies such as NASA being more efficient and reducing waste. 

 

Keynote Speaker

 

At the workshop, C3P and NASA also celebrated the 5-year anniversary signing of the Joint Statement Between NASA and the Portuguese Ministry of Environment Regarding Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Pollution Prevention in September 2002. 

 

C3P is an international organization that facilitates partnerships with the scientific & technical community in Portugal, Europe, and the United States to identify and evaluate less hazardous and sustainable materials for use in acquisition, manufacturing and sustaining maintenance processes.  The C3P is recognized by Ministério do Ambiente de Portugal (Portuguese Ministry of Environment), and NASA per the Joint Statement Between NASA and the Portuguese Ministry of the Environment Regarding Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Pollution Prevention Matters, signed on 18 September 2002. 

 

The workshop was co-organized by the Escola Superior de Tecnologia do Mar and by Câmara Municipal de Peniche.
