SNWG Releases Statement Concerning Nanosilver

The Silver Nanotechnology Working Group (SNWG) recently prepared a statement concerning nanosilver and its long history of safe and regulated use. SNWG notes the similarities between nanosilver and other antimicrobial silver materials available in the marketplace. SNWG states that it "has interacted with the [U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)] in challenged exchanges on how best to regulate nanopesticides leading to a clear, reasonable, and responsible path for registration." SNWG urges EPA and other agencies not to impose unwarranted barriers to emerging nanotechnology industries. Instead, SNWG asks that EPA and other agencies "nourish the benefits these can provide while screening finished products claiming pesticidal properties on a case by case basis for any environmental risk." SNWG seeks "a sensible path forward for registering nanopesticides that is not burdensome for either the government or industry."
