GUIDEnano logoThe main objective of GUIDEnano is to develop innovative methodologies to evaluate and manage human and environmental health risks of nano-enabled products, considering the whole product life cycle. A strategy to identify hot spots for release of nanomaterials (NMs) will be followed by decision trees to guide on the use of (computational) exposure models and, when necessary, design of cost-effective strategies for experimental exposure assessment. These will include on-site and off-site monitoring of industrial processes, use, accelerated aging, recycling and disposal set-ups.

In all cases, there will be a strong emphasis on the transformation of NMs. Similarly, a tiered strategy to evaluate the environmental fate and the hazards for ecosystem and human health of NMs will be developed. The project will consider pristine synthesized NMs, transformed NMs released during the life cycle of the product, and interactions of the NMs with other substances in their host matrices and ubiquitous pollutants. The project will also develop innovative solutions to reduce identified risks. These will include safer-by-design approaches (to reduce NM hazard, reduce migration and release, or accelerate degradation when released), new technological solutions for exposure control measures, and solutions for waste minimization and treatment.

 

LEITAT’s role in the project: As consortium leader, LEITAT will be in charge the Project Coordination. We also will work on Outputs Quality Assessment and Communication,  Life Cycle of NM-Enabled Products, Exposure Assessment and Hazard Assessment.

According to the WP of Development of the Interactive Web-Based GUIDEnano Tool, LEITAT will participate in a Web-based application development framework and the inventory of feedback from external evaluation and release of GUIDEnano Tool v3.
