The Behaviour of Aerosols Released to Ambient Air from Nanoparticle Manufacturing - A Pre-normative Study (NANOTRANSPORT) - Publishable final activity report

Project ID: 33371
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

The objective of the NANOTRANSPORT project was to investigate physical changes which NP aerosols undergo after release into the workplace environment under realistic scenarios. This information is essential to understand the characteristics of NPs when they reach a human receptor after transport over a distance from a NP source. Knowledge obtained from the study was used to develop recommendations to EC regarding:
- Test aerosols for nanotoxicology studies;
- Testing of filters and protective equipment in the workplace;
- Research priorities.
The final activity report provides brief information on major achievements and key project actions carried out during the whole project period from September 2006 to April 2008.
