September 5, 2019 – September 6, 2019
The NanoFASE Concluding Conference will present and share latest developments and new tools for the Environmental Exposure Assessment of Nanomaterials through small workshops, platform presentations and poster sessions.
NanoFASE, coordinated by Dr Claus Svendsen of NERC CEH, is a four years Horizon 2020 project and member of the EU NanoSafety Cluster.
The overarching objective of NanoFASE is to deliver an integrated environmental Exposure Assessment Framework (protocols, models, parameter values, guidance) that:
- Allows all stakeholders to assess the environmental fate of nano releases from industrial nano-enabled products,
- Is acceptable in regulatory registrations and can be integrated into the EUSES model for REACH assessment,
- Fosters a cost-effective product-to-market process for industry, and
- Delivers the understanding at all levels to support dialogue with public and consumers.
NanoFASE has developed a set of novel concepts and approaches to underpin the Exposure Assessment Framework giving powerful insight into the transportation and fate processes of nanomaterials released into the environment.
