Outcomes published as OptiNanoPro draws to a close

Date: 12/10/2018

In September 2018 the H2020 OptiNanoPro project came to a close after three years of work into the introduction of nanotechnology into packaging, automotive and photovoltaic materials production lines.

The project aimed to develop different approaches for the introduction of nanotechnology into packaging, automotive and photovoltaic materials production lines. In particular, the project focused on the development and industrial integration of tailored online dispersion and monitoring systems to ensure a constant quality of delivered materials.

SAFENANO were involved in conducting the health impact assessment, involving detailed characterisation and assessment of the potential risks presented by materials and processes developed throughout the duration of the project. Importantly, the project took into account nanosafety, environmental, productivity and cost-effectiveness issues, with IOM leading the nanosafety and training activities.

More information about the outcomes of OptiNanoPro, including a concluding video and associated publications, can be found on the project website:
