Who we are

INANOTOOL "Development of an interactive tool for the implementation of environmental legislation in Nanoparticle Manufacturers . LIFE12 ENV/ES/000326"  

The project objectives: To contribute to the efficient implementation of the environmental policy and legislation in nanomaterials manufacturers companies, specially SMEs. It includes the development of an interactive platform (e-tool) for environmental self diagnosis addressed to nanoparticles manufacturers in European countries

Project results:  
1-A tool for evaluation of the environmental status of the companies engaged to nanomaterials production.    
2- A Guideline to manage their environmental impact    
3-Implementation of an e-tool in European nanomaterials companies 
•Initial implantation of the e-tool to 6% of nanomaterials manufacturers in Europe   
•Implantation of the e-tool to 50% of the nanomaterials manufacturers in Europe, by the end of the project



Inanotool approach

Provide nanoparticles producers implementation and enforcement of environmental legislation.

Environmental management

Provide updated information on the environmental management of their business.

Improve environmental situation

Improve the environmental situation of European Industries producing nanoparticles.

Environmental impact

Provide updates on legislation and respective environmental impact generated by their activities
