Safety of nanomaterials
As with all new technologies, nano also needs the balance of opportunities and risks to enable sustainable adoption in many applications. The risk is always linked to the danger and the exposure. As long as there is no exposure, the risk is very small. If exposure is unavoidable, there are measures to allow the handling of potentially hazardous substances, e.g. in the manufacture of nanomaterials. Below are some important documents on this topic.
