Welcome to the NanoSustain website. The ultimate goal of NanoSustain is to explore, examine and develop new solutions for the sustainable design, use, re-use, recycling and final treatment and/or disposal of specific nanomaterials and associated products. This will be based on a comprehensive hazard characterization and impact assessment of selected environmentally and economically relevant materials products.
