Sustainable Nanotechnology – Bringing together Environment and Health Impacts and Novel Applications of Engineered Nanomaterials

Sustainable Nanotechnology is defined as the use and development of nanomaterials in safe and responsible ways, with considerations of environment and human health impacts, in order to sustain economical, social and health benefits. This symposium will discuss issues relevant to sustinable nanotechnology, including the following topics.

  • Nanotoxicology: Health impacts of exposure to engineered nanomaterials
  • Eco-Nanotoxicology: Environmental impacts of released engineered nanomaterial
  • Nanotechnology in food and agriculture applications
  • Life cycle analysis of nanomaterials in nano-enabled products
  • Safe-by-design approaches to develop novel nanotechnologies
