Iran Holds Int’l Nano Safety Congress

Tehran, Iran | Posted on February 24th, 2014

Different world states, including South Africa, the United States, China, Denmark, South Korea, India, Italy and Hungary participated in the two-day congress.

"Iran Nano Safety Congress covered all aspects of safety in nanomaterials, including human health, safety in working places, and environmental safety. It also provided an opportunity for researchers to share data and experience about the toxicity of nanomaterials," Dr. Qazi, the Scientific Secretary of Iran Nano Safety Congress, said.

Among the scopes that were discussed in the congress, mention can be made of evaluation of exposure, methodology, characterization, tracking and monitoring, job and environmental safety, toxicology, ecotoxicology, and studying lifecycle and standardization and regulations.

"Nano Safety Network of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council organized Iran Nano Safety Congress to identify people who are active in this field, and to exchange data to increase the potential in the field of nanotechnology safety in all aspects, and the importance and necessity of safety in nanotechnology products," he continued.

Dr. Qazi spoke about foreign guests who participated in the congress, and said, "Depending on workgroups existing in Nano Safety Network, different guests and speakers delivered lecture on issues such as environment, humans and jobs. There were speakers from South Africa, the United States, China, Denmark, South Korea, India, Italy and Hungary in the congress."
