Environment, Health and Safety issues

The environmental, health, and safety issues of nanomaterials has been defined as “the collection of fields combined with the terms ‘environmental health, human health, animal health, and safety which were used in the context of risk assessment and risk management. In this term “nano-EHS” is used for assistance to refer specifically to environmental, health, and safety research and related activities as they apply to nanoscale science, technology, and engineering. This issues outlines the major advances in nano EHS over the last 10 years and the major challenges, developments, and achievements that we can expect over the next 10 years without providing all inclusive coverage or a review of all the important issues in this field.
