Nanomaterial FAte and Speciation in the Environment; Assessment of environmental fate of nanomaterials

NanoFASE will deliver an integrated Exposure Assessment Framework, including methods, parameter values, model and guidance that will allow Industry to assess the full diversity of industrial nano-enabled products to a standard acceptable in regulatory registrations. Methods to assess how use phases, waste streams and environmental compartments (air, soil, water biota) act as “reactors” in modifying and transporting ENMs will be developed and used to derive parameter values.

NanoFASE is a 4-year collaboration to create an integrated Framework for Exposure Assessment of nanomaterials released in the environment.
