Environmental risk analysts need to draw from a clear typology of uncertainties when qualifying risk estimates and/or significance statements about risk. However categorisations of uncertainty within existing typologies are largely overlapping, contradictory, and subjective, and many typologies are not designed [...]

End-of Life Regulation of Nanotechnology .
EPA must make key decisions about how to apply the two major end-of-life statutes to nanotechnology waste in order to ensure adequate oversight for these technologies, concludes a new report from the Wilson Center’s Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies. However, the report notes that the Agency lacks much of [...]
