NanoFASE Case Studies: Intentional or deliberate release

Some nano-enabled products deliberately employ release of ENMs into the environment to perform intended functions. Examples include nanopesticides, or NPs used for groundwater remediation. The NanoFASE case studies of such intentional release assess the fate of ENM from these applications, identifying factors that influence the ultimate destination of the NPs as well as NP transformation within the environment. These factors are translated into parameters improving the realism of NanoFASE models.
