Nanoenabled environmental products and technologies - opportunities and drawbacks


The project aims to investigate the benefits for health and environment that the use of nanomaterials in products and technologies may have. More specifically, the project provides an overview of the most relevant nano-enabled environmental technologies, different types of products and technologies on the (Danish) market, as well as products and technologies, which are still in R&D and it will provide a qualitative overview of health and environmental pros and cons of these technologies.  

The project has focused on technologies applied in: 1) purification of water and wastewater, 2) remediation of soil and groundwater, 3) cleaning of air, 4) reduction of energy consumption and 5) for improving hygiene in the health care sector by utilizing the antibacterial properties of certain nanomaterials.
