NanoFASE at ICEEN 2018

The NanoFASE project played a prominent role at the 13th International Conference on the Environmental Effects of Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials (ICEENN 2018, Duke University, North Carolina) which was organised by the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CIENT).

Claus Svendsen (NERC), coordinator for the NanoFASE project and keynote speaker at ICEENN 2018, comments that "ICEENN 2018 was a great opportunity to present the latest results from NanoFASE studies and engage with the latest developments in European and North American academic communities. It was encouraging to see that the analytical techniques and modelling approaches developed and used in NanoFASE fit well with the current thinking of our peers."

Claus' keynote addressed how to ensure that papers and data produced from studies are directly useful in regulatory assessments. NanoFASE's Véronique Adam (EMPA) and Geert Cornelis (SLU) also gave platform presentations. Vicenç Pomar Portillo (LEITAT), Amaia Etxabe Green, Elma Lahive and Jessica Adams (all NERC) presented posters covering studies on nanomaterial release products, plants uptake and determination of attachment rate in soils.
