New rules expected on safety of nanotechnology products
(Nanowerk News) Environmental Defense and DuPont invite you to the public launch of the Nano Risk Framework, a new tool for evaluating and addressing the potential risks of nanoscale materials. There will be a live webcast today, Thursday, June 21, 2007 at 11:00 am EST at www.wilsoncenter.org/nano.
The event will include a discussion of the Framework itself, the process to develop it, case studies demonstrating its use, and commentary from leaders in the nanotechnology field.
The New York Times took the occasion to run a story on these guidelines for evaluating the safety and environmental risks of nanotechnology products.
