CL:AIRE is pleased to announce the publication of the first two bulletins from the EU FP7 NanoRem project. Since 2013, the NanoRem project has carried out an intensive development and optimisation programme for different nanoparticles (NPs), along with analysis and testing methods, investigations of fate and transport of the NPs and their environmental impact.
This was undertaken in parallel with developing a comprehensive understanding of the environmental risk-benefit for the use of nanoparticles (NPs), market demand, overall sustainability, and stakeholder perceptions. The NanoRem Toolbox, available at www.nanorem.eu, provides outputs which address all these issues.
NanoRem Bulletin #1 provides an overview of NanoRem, its aims, structure and the main generic results. This overview provides links to other NanoRem outputs where a greater depth of detail can be found.

NanoRem Bulletin #4 provides a guide to different types of NPs used within the NanoRem project, looking at their production and properties, and separates them into two broad classes: i) nano zero-valent iron (nZVI) and ii) non-ZVI and composite NPs.
