Abstract

Article discusses how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is looking into its regulatory procedures for nanosilver and at the need for strengthening oversight of these materials and their use in products and manufacturing processes. Discusses the use on nanosilver in consumer projects, research that has raised some concerns over the prospect of nanosilver particles being released in the environment and causing harm to ecosystems, and past actions taken by the EPA on customers using nanosilver in their products as an unregistered pesticide.
