GLRPPR Sector Resource: Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray (External Review Draft) | National Center for Environmental Assessment | US EPA

Title:
Nanomaterial Case Study: Nanoscale Silver in Disinfectant Spray (External Review Draft) | National Center for Environmental Assessment | US EPA

Abstract:
This draft document presents a case study of engineered nanoscale silver (nano-Ag), focusing on the specific example of nano-Ag as possibly used in disinfectant sprays. This case study is organized around a comprehensive environmental assessment (CEA) framework, which combines a product life-cycle perspective with the risk assessment paradigm. The document does not draw conclusions about potential risks. Instead, it is intended to be used as part of a process to identify what is known and unknown about nano-Ag in a selected application and can be used as a starting point to identify and prioritize possible research directions to support future assessments of nanomaterials.
