EUON Opinion on nanoplastics and the challenges of environmental risk assessment
Our DaNa colleague Dana Kühnel from UFZ Leipzig recently published together with Anita Jemec Kokalj from University of Ljubljana an opinion in the Nanopinion section of the EUON: Are nanoplastics hazardous? The way forward to overcome the uncertainties of risk assessment. The scientists explain what criteria have to be described to evaluate the different properties of nanoplastics. The short article sums up that the development of nanoplastic specific guidelines are crucial and would decrease uncertainties in the risk assessment of nano sized plastics.
EUON invites views from different contributors ranging from policy-makers and authorities to industry and civil society on their work and priorities related to nanomaterials on the EU market.
