The journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) has published a new review article that focuses on the use of nanomaterials for environmental cleanup. The authors provide an overview of current practices; research findings; societal issues; potential environmental, health, and safety implications;...
The first national workshop on the safe use of nanomaterials in environmental remediation will be held at Southeastern Louisiana University, United States, from June 5-7, 2013. The workshop, “Applications of Nanotechnology for Safe and Sustainable Environmental Remediations,” will attempt to provide...
Scientists from the Research Facility for Subsurface Remediation (VEGAS) of the University of Stuttgart, Germany, along with 27 partners from 13 countries, as part of the European Union project “NanoRem,” investigated how to develop practical, efficient, safe and economical nanotechnologies for in-situ...
Although there are at least four patents and/or innovations in nanomaterials that address the cleanup or remediation of oil spills, the contribution from nanotechnology to help clean up the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will be minor at best, according to experts. Tim Harper, an expert on the...
VeruTEK Technologies, Inc., a U.S. company developing nanotechnology applications for environmental remediation, and QuantumSphere, Inc. (QSI), a U.S. company developing advanced materials, have partnered to develop a new line of Coelution Technologies for remediation of soil and groundwater contaminants...
The Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) website says that Israel is, and will continue to be, at the forefront of nanotechnological innovation. The website says: "Nanotechnology is a natural enabler for Israel. In fact, our small size is also our advantage - it means sharper focus,...
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be hosting the 2008 International Environmental Nanotechnology Conference: Applications and Implications on October 7 to 9 to discuss nanotechnology applications for environmental remediation and pollution control, as well as the potential environmental...
In this article, Dr. Priyanka Battacharya, with the Nano-BioPhysics and Soft Matter Laboratory, Clemson University, United States, discusses the contributions her laboratory has made to the field of drinking water remediation using nanomaterials. Worldwide, 1.1 billion people lack access to sufficient...
