Facilitate implementation in nano-manufacturing processes
Although previous EU funded projects have defined tools and concepts to ensure safety of nano-enabled products through design, many hurdles still hinder the implementation of these procedures in real production processes. The EU-funded ASINA project will study the production value chains of two representative categories of nano-enabled products: coatings in environmental nanotechnology and nano-encapsulating systems in cosmetics. The project seeks to formulate design hypothesis and make design decisions by applying a safe-by-design management methodology (the ASINA-SMM), molded on industrial six sigma practices, to ensure an easy implementation in nano-manufacturing processes. By its end, ASINA will provide a ROADMAP to generalise ASINA-SMM, and maximizing the positive impacts of further products, designed to improve environmental quality and human health/wellness.
