While nanotechnology research is booming, increased nanofabrication also results in greater environmental implications of pollutant effects from these emerging industries. Nanotechnology and the Environment provides a fundamental understanding of the properties of nanoscale materials and the implications for worker safety and the environment. This book presents a comprehensive overview of developing environmental regulations and the implications for possible human health and environmental effects. Offering cohesive and authoritative coverage of the limitations of nanotechnology, this text also discusses the current and potential use of nanomaterials for environmental remediation.
