Read Frequently Asked Questions

The presentation will focus on identifying means to better understand and to address each of these associated risks.

Description

This webinar will provide an overview of the current state of knowledge of nanoparticle risk assessment and also will provide recommendations for companies and organizations involved with or considering use of nanomaterials in their products.

The debate over the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) risks of nanotechnology is currently centered on engineered nanoparticles, like quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, and nanoscale zinc oxide. To date, actual data about nanoparticle toxicity is thin, but is sufficient to cause concern. Thus, a major challenge for firms and organizations involved in nanotechnology development is that they must plan for risks without knowing precisely what they are. Nanotechnology’s commercial outcomes can be affected by two distinct classes of EHS risk, both equally important and utterly distinct: Real risks that nanoparticles may be hazardous, and perceptual risks that they pose a threat regardless of whether or not it is real. Action is required on both fronts. The presentation will focus on identifying means to better understand and to address each of these associated risks.
