Nanotechnology Companies Need Clear Environment and Health Roadmap to Succeed: Survey of Northeast Firms Identifies Safety Challenges to Nanotech Commercialization

Today, the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies released the results of a new survey of New England-based nanotechnology companies aimed at discovering how firms in almost every sector of the economy address the possible environmental, health and safety (EHS) impacts of new nanoscale materials and products. The survey found that these firms lack a clear roadmap of government EHS expectations and regulations for successful commercialization, as well as the information needed to meet those expectations.
