Nanomaterial Fate and Speciation in the Environment

Ca’ Foscari researchers are involved in the Nanomaterial Fate and Speciation in the Environment ­ NANOFASE ­ Horizon 2020 project (Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies).
Progress is needed in the prediction of environmental distribution, concentration and form (speciation) of nanomaterials, to allow early assessment of potential environmental and human exposure and risks, to facilitate safe product design and to include these aspects in nano regulation.
