Research developments on nanomaterials, which have been fast-growing worldwide, have already cleared the way for the emergence of numerous applications over the next decades. However, the knowledge of nanoparticle hazards to humans and the environment is still very limited. Numerous uncertainties remain about the future of the nanoparticles in the environment, their dissemination in the human body and possible induced long-term effects.
So, the Academy of Technologies has called on numerous experts to ask them how to manufacture and use the new materials that provide very real advantages to our daily lives, without any harmful consequences to our health or environment. The results of their collective thinking has just produced a short book from the distinguished Academy of Technology. Editions Le Manuscrit has published the work called Hazards from Manufactured Nanoparticles. A thought-provoking must-read!
