Nanoscale Science and Engineering Task Force

The international Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) recently announced the formation of a new Intercommittee Task Force (ITF) on Nanoscale Science and Engineering. The ITF will span a wide array of subjects including environmental policy, measurement, health effects, monitoring, management, and safety issues associated with the development and use of nanomaterials, nanotechnologies and nanoscale products. For over 100 years, A&WMA has provided a neutral forum for information exchange to thousands of environmental professionals worldwide to promote global environmental responsibility and increase the effectiveness of organizations to make critical decisions that benefit society.
