Jack Uldrich: I have to give DuPont (NYSE: DD) credit: It learns from its mistakes. This month, the chemical giant paid a $16 million administrative penalty for failing to report the dangers of perfluorooctanic acid, or PFOA.
The same week, the Environmental Protection Agency released a draft paper outlining a variety of concerns stemming from the gaps in scientists' understanding of the environmental and health effects of nanotechnology.
