Environmental fate and behaviour of nanomaterials (2014) and Environmental assessment of nanomaterial use in Denmark (2015)
Both reports arose from the Danish project “NanoDEN”, commissioned by the Danish EPA.
Environmental fate and behaviour of nanomaterials by Hartmann N, Skjolding L, Foss Hansen S, Gottschalk F, Baun A (2014)
The report 1 provides an overview of the to date knowledge regarding processes relevant for environmental fate and behaviour of ENMs. Key environmental processes are identified, discussed and prioritized according to their relevance as inputs for fate modelling for ENMs. Furthermore, knowledge gaps are identified and prioritised with regard to their relevance in relation to predicting environmental concentrations of ENMs (original abstract).
Environmental assessment of nanomaterial use in Denmark by Kjølholt J, Gottschalk F, Holten Lutzhøft H-C, Hartmann N, Nowack B, Baun A (2015)
The 2nd document presents the concluding report of the NanoDEN project which includes the performance of environmental risk assessments of ten engineered nanomaterials selected in the project to represent ENMs of relevance to Denmark. The assessment is based on the results of the preceding sub-projects of NanoDEN that have addressed the following themes related to ENMs: environmental fate and behaviour, modelling of environmental exposure, and effects in the (aquatic) environment (original abstract) and presents data gaps and uncertainties.
