Big impact of EnvNano project @ DTU Environment on ECHA's new nanoGuidance update and the
Talking about making an impact!
The European Chemical Agency (@ECHA) has just published its new guidelines on testing of nanomaterials (see https://echa.europa.eu/-/reach-guidance-for-nanomaterials-published#.WSxOUlWG_x0.linkedin) and researchers in the ERC project EnvNano @DTU...
Product number 3,000 added to The Nanodatabase
We have just added product number 3,000 to The Nanodatabase!
Product number 2,000 was added in September, 2015 meaning the database has grown with 1,000 products over the course of just 18 months.
Most product fall into the category of Health and Fitness (1845) whereas about one sixth of all the products fall into the category of Home and Garden (555).
For the 1845 products...
Is "safety by design" the way forward for nanomaterials?
A new study by researchers at DTU Environment and GenØk in Tromsø, Norway raises serious questions about the use of the concept "Safety by Design" (SbD) in nanosafety research.
Numerous stakeholders in the field have pledged their hope to SbD in the pursuit of the development of ‘safe’ or safer nanomaterials. The study, published in Nanotoxicology, discusses the origin of the...
