GLRPPR Sector Resource: U.S. EPA Workshop on Nanotechnology for Site Remediation

U.S. EPA Workshop on Nanotechnology for Site Remediation

On October 20-21, 2005, The use of nanotechnologies for environmental applications will need coordinated advocacy if it is to find commercial uses other than nanoiron for chlorinated solvent remediation. These uses, such as radiation, chemical sensors, and treatment technologies, offer huge upsides that would benefit from having a unified voice. Finally, the United States must find ways to sustain commercialization of nanotechnologies while protecting the environment. The Department of Commerce supports EPA in its efforts to address the potential effects of nanotechnologies and will continue to be a partner with the agency in the future.
