Abstract

The participants in the workshop identified the vital role that exposure assessment plays in the nations's ability to property address the environmental, health and safety aspects of nanomaterials. They also stressed that the two major areas of exposure that require attention is metrology - developing tools to characterize and measure relevant attributes of engineered nanomaterials, and life cycle analysis of engineered nanomaterials in consumer goods, including the their transformation and degradation through the development, use, and ultimate disposal of products. The report looks at exposure assessment in the workplace, identifying population groups and environments exposed to engineered nanomaterials, assessing exposure to the general population from industrial processes, and consumer products containing nanomaterials, and emerging cross-cutting research needs.
