- To identify current nanomaterials produced in the UK and their actual and predicted usage volumes, 2. To identify new developments in the field of nanomaterials and to assess the potential for environmental contamination arising from these, 3. To assess the likely fate and behaviour of nanoparticles in the environment, 4. To determine the potential for exposure at all stages of nanomaterial production, use, disposal and recycling, 5. To quantify current and potential concentrations of nanomaterials in the environment and assess the value of current models for predicting exposure, 6. To identify work ongoing elsewhere of relevance to the study, 7. To recommend future research requirement
