Project

Nano risk

The ecological risk assessment of manufactured nanoparticles (MNP) will be different from current risk assessment of substances, because the current risk assessment is based on the paradigm that the active species is the molecular form.

This project will critically and systematically review ecotoxicological data and risk assessment modeling procedures and propose alternate processes fit for use with MNP in EU risk assessment.

This projects aims at adapting probabilistic environmental and health risk assessment methods for nanomaterials, with attention for uncertainties.
