Earlier this week, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency issued several new publications addressing environmental and human health risk assessment in nanomaterials:
- Consumer Risk Assessment for nanoproducts on the Danish Market
- Dermal Absorption of Nanomaterials Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide Based Sunscreen: Role of Size and Surface Coating
- Environmental assessment of nanomaterial use in Denmark
- Environmental Effects of Engineered Nanomaterials: Estimations of Predicted No-effect Concentrations
The publications produce new data for environmental, health and safety assessment of numerous nanomaterials as well as summarize the available literature for others.
