The objective of this project was to investigate the potential distribution of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in Singapore's aquatic environment through quantitative estimates of the presence of ENPs based on information on the use of ENPs-containing consumer products and their life cycle.
This project aimed to provide:
Through this project, a comprehensive assessment on the probable levels of ENPs in water and potential human exposure was built that can be used to support a knowledge based approach for effective policy development.
The project was supported by PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency, and completed at the end of 2014.
Results of the study have been published as an article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
