Nanomaterials: Effects on Environment and Health
Many of the burgeoning number of products containing nanomaterials on the market promise great things for the environment. However, recent scientific investigations indicate that this proliferation brings potential health and environmental risks. In light of the new scientific findings, the study by TA-Swiss aims to provide an overview of commercial products containing nanomaterials and of future trends, as well as identifying linked potential opportunities and consequences related to the proliferation of such products. The study also analyses current discussion of risk management strategies and the associated need for regulation.
