Currently, nanotechnologies are not contributing exceptionally to an increase in the substitution of hazardous substances for safer ones. However, experts believe that this could well change in the future.
These are two of the messages coming out of a study by STOA, the European Parliament's Scientific Technology Options Assessment committee, on the role of nanotechnology in chemical substitution.
The goal of the project was to provide an overview of the current use of nanotechnologies to replace hazardous chemicals, with a view to identifying new applications of nanotechnologies which could be used to reduce the risks related to hazardous substances.
