NanoGEM, Nanostructured Materials - Health, Exposition, and Characteristics of the Material
- Project number:
- F 2269
Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA)
- Planned end:
Because of the novelty of the technology and missing measurement systems, exposure to nanomaterial at the workplace and in the environment is unknown to a large extent. In this project, BAuA in co-operation with an inter-disciplinary consortium develops measurement strategies to determine the inhalation exposure to selected nanomaterials, defines deagglomeration characteristics, and evaluates the measurement strategy in field surveys. In a second focal point, a preliminary risk assessment for these nanomaterials will be performed with regard to workers health.
