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.

To assess the recyclability and sustainability of nanotechnology based products, NanoSustain partner VTT is currently studying, in cooperation with the University of Eastern Finland, the release of nanoparticles during melting (recycling) of nano-ZnO coated glass, and the behaviour of CNTs from epoxy-CNT composites during incineration as a final treament for safe disposal.
First results will be presented at the European Aerosol Conference in Manchester (UK), 4th-9th September 2011.
