WP2 results presented at Eurotox by VITO

VITO attended Eurotox presenting on a poster the results of WP2. The objective of WP2 is to evaluate exposure and effect, and to establish a HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) management system for the selected metallic core-shell nanoparticle (NP) powders during all processes of the NANOTUN3D value chain (manufacture of core shell, manufacturing of powder, processing in additive manufacturing technologies, post-processing, such as cutting, machining, polishing, …).

A review of applicable international regulation has been carried out, as well as a LIFE Cycle Analysis, prior to the exposure assessment and simulation of real-life exposure scenarios that have allowed the consortium to devise a HSE system for the NANOTUN3D process.
