The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been accused of acting "too little, too late" in taking action to protect the public and the environment from adverse effects of nanomaterials.
At a public meeting on its proposal for a voluntary Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program, the EPA was urged by US organisation Environmental Defense to act much more aggressively to protect the public and the environment.
"Two years in the making, EPA's tepid proposals have actually set back the clock," testified Dr Richard Denison, Senior Scientist for Environmental Defense. "As a government response to addressing the possible downsides of the nanotechnology revolution, it's simply 'too little, too late.'"
