Massachusetts Issues Nano-EHS Guidance Document

Aug. 2010- Massachusetts’ Office of Technical Assistance and Technology (OTA) recently released its “OTA Technology Guidance Document: Nanotechnology - Considerations for Safe Development” which has been in development for the past couple of years.  The document begins by noting the tremendous positive influence nanotechnology is predicted to have in the fields of biomedical ...


Effectively Managing the Risks of Nanomaterials: Present Status and Future Challenges

Nanomaterials represent the building blocks of nanotechnology-enabled products and applications encompassing a broad range of substances and structures having features in the 1-100 nanometer range. Nanomaterials are of significant interest as they exhibit enhanced physical, chemical and electronic properties in comparison to their bulk counterparts. They can impact a range of applications ...

Green Nanotechnology: It's Easier Than You Think

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 ...
