Breakthrough in nanoparticle behaviour in wastewater

Abstract:
Team member Bernd Nowack of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing Research said that while the high concentrations of nanoparticles used for these experiments could not be applied to normal wastewater, it could have implications in terms of dealing with industrial accidents.

According to an article in the Environment Times, the UK government commissioned research into the fate, behaviour, toxicity and ecological effects of manufactured nanoparticles once they are introduced to the environment.
