The Danish Consumer Council and the Danish Ecological Council, in cooperation with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Environment, have developed a database intended to help consumers identify more than 1,200 products that may contain nanomaterials…



Dealing With Nano-Waste: Can Nanoparticles Be Recycled?

By Will Soutter

Nanoparticles are being used in more and more consumer products. As these products reach their end of life, it will be very difficult to prevent the release of nanoparticles into the environment. As the size of these particles allows them to interact strongly with biological structures, there are all sort of potential human and environmental health issues associated with the build up of nano-waste in ecosystems…
