Graphene Health, Safety and Environmental Issues

Science for Environment Policy  

Assessing the environmental safety of manufactured nanomaterials.

This In-depth Report was produced for the European Commission, DG Environment and is written and edited by the Science Communication Unit, University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol. 

The aim of this In-Depth Report is to present the most promising strategies and most significant challenges of nanomaterial characterisation, exposure, fate and behaviour, ecotoxicological hazard and risk assessment. It presents examples and case studies of both the scientific developments and the knowledge gaps.

A Realistic Assessment of Graphene Toxicity: 
An Interview with Andrew Maynard
 

Increasingly, determining how potentially toxic and dangerous nanomaterials are to our health and environment is a critical issue that is gaining public visibility.  

The Graphene Council had the opportunity to interview Dr. Andrew Maynard, the National Science Foundation’s International Chair of Environmental Health Sciences as well as the Director for the University of Michigan’s Risk Science Center.

Dr. Maynard has consistently written and provided a balanced perspective on the risks of nanomaterials.
