Environmental fate

Environmental fate and behaviour of nanomaterials New knowledge on important transformation processes

This summary and assessment report on new knowledge concerning the processes governing environmental fate and behaviour of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) is the first report from the project "Nanomaterials – Occurrence and effects in the Danish Environment" ("NanoDEN"). NanoDEN was commissioned by the Danish EPA in December 2012 and runs until mid-2015 and is one among a number of projects funded by the Danish EPA on nanomaterials aiming to increase the knowledge and understanding regarding occurrence of ENMs in Denmark and the risks posed by these to humans and the environment.
