In Japan, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology is leading a project to evaluate the safety of nanotechnology products. The project is aimed at determining the toxicity of a wide range of nanoscale materials. It expects to announce its findings by the end of fiscal 2010.
For some particularly important nanoscale materials, including carbon nanotubes, there is a fear that they pose potential health hazards. To find out, animal experiments will be conducted by using these materials. The institute will draw up guidelines on the amount of exposure that is safe for the human body and make proposals about how such materials should be used.
