Welcome to the NanoSustain website. The ultimate goal of NanoSustain is to explore, examine and develop new solutions for the sustainable design, use, re-use, recycling and final treatment and/or disposal of specific nanomaterials and associated products. This will be based on a comprehensive hazard characterization and impact assessment of selected environmentally and economically relevant materials products.

Latest Project News

After three years of intensive research work, reporting and evaluation, the EU FP7 NanoSustain project has successfully completed. The final newsletter is now available to all users of the NanoSustain website and provides an update of the work performed, results and outcomes achieved. This last NanoSustain Newsletter again provides a lot of interesting news from outwith the project.


- How can nanotechnology-based products impact human health and the environment?

- Can they be recycled?

- Can they be safely disposed of?

- How can you find out?


The NanoSustain partners attended and participated in a fruitful and successful face-to-face 6th Project meeting at the historic Hotel Monopole in Frankfurt from 8th—9th November, followed by a collaborative online meeting held in December. Both meetings enabled the consortium to update the current status of work and to focus on the discussion and evaluation of the huge amount of experimental, analytical and testing data generated during the last 30 months of the project.
