Description:
The rapidly advancing field of nanotechnology offers potential benefits to almost all industries and products and some studies show over 1,000 consumer products already utilize nanomaterials. This increased (and increasing) use has generated world-wide attention from regulators and the general public that want to ensure exposure to these materials does not result in risk to human health or the environment. This session will explore the current state of knowledge pertainging to environmental health and safety concerns surrounding nanomaterials.
