Commercializing Nanomaterials

Abstract:
Engineered nanoparticles have already found their way into fabrics and sporting equipment, and they are being studied for use in drug delivery systems and enhanced sensors. But some federal policymakers worry that companies may be deterred from developing nanomaterials into commercial products because of regulatory uncertainty and funding shortfalls.

To examine the issues related to commercializing nanomaterials, Congress, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Academies each held independent meetings late last month. These meetings targeted ways in which the government can facilitate the movement of these new materials into the market while ensuring that proper safeguards are in place to protect the public and the environment.
