Mar. 2013- A little wisdom to help develop a partnership between the new EPA and the nanotechnology community.Gina McCarthy's nomination to head the Environmental Protection Agency probably won't have been Senate confirmed before this article goes to press, but I don't think I'm going too far out on a limb to say, "Welcome… and may I have a moment of your time?"
Green nanotechnology can proactively influence the design of nanomaterials and products by eliminating or minimizing pollution from the production of nanomaterials, taking a life cycle approach to nanoproducts to estimate and mitigate where environmental impacts might occur in the product chain, designing toxicity out of nanomaterials and using nanomaterials to treat or remediate existing ...
An examination of the FDA's ability to regulate products containing nanotechnology
Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regulates the manufacture and use of industrial chemicals to control potential unreasonable risks to human health and the environment from the workplace to the consumer. Identifying the implications and avoiding additional unintended consequences of nanoscale materials (NMs) is challenging, ...
