Recognize and Overcome the Risks Involving Nanotechnology With full-color images and insights into key health and environmental aspects of nanotechnology, this resource shows how the risk analysis of nanotechnology can play an important role in creating a sustainable future. Categories: Technique\Nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology: Health and Environmen-

Nanotechnology: Health and Environmen-. The extensive development of nanotechnologies and nano-enabled products has been accompanied by considerable concern regarding the possible risks for the environment, health and safety (EHS) and broader ethical, legal and social issues (ELSIs) associated with its application and use (or misuse).

Introduction: Assessing Nanotechnology Health and Environmental Risks Jo Anne Shatkin. Defining Risk Assessment and How It Is Used for Environmental Protection, and Its Potential Role for Managing Nanotechnology Risks Jo Anne Shatkin. The book appropriately highlights the complexity of nanotechnology risk assessment in humans and the environment, and explains this complexity in a clear and logical fashion. Professor of Medicine; Chief, Division of NanoMedicine; and Director of UC CEIN at UCLA, USA.

Interested in Nanotechnology but Can’t Bear to Wade through Detailed Technical Reports?

While reports on nanotechnology by research and marketing firms as well as governmental agencies are comprehensive and insightful, they can often be tedious to read, expensive to procure, and generally unknown to nonexperts interested in this technology. Offering a reader-friendly and affordable alternative to these options, Nanotechnology: Health and Environmental Risks introduces risk analysis as a tool for responsible environmental decision making in nanotechnology development and provides examples of past, present, and future technologies that demonstrate the need for and benefits of evaluating the risks of nanotechnology.

The Most Up-to-Date and Relevant Information on the Impact of Nanotechnology on Our Health and Surroundings

After outlining the steps of risk analysis, the book examines the opportunity costs inherent in current nanotechnology development. It then introduces life cycle analysis, the toxicology of nanoscale materials, and the known impacts of specific nanoscale materials on people. The text also covers environmental impacts and exposure, followed by chapters on the state-of-the-art tools that adapt life cycle thinking into risk analysis for nanotechnology. The final chapters describe current practices for managing the hazards and risks of nanoscale materials and explore the numerous international efforts that address the risks, science, and policies of nanotechnology.
