GUIDEnano develops a software tool to evaluate and manage human and environmental health risks of nano-enabled products, considering the whole product life cycle. After 18 months, the research consortium has accomplished a great deal in pursuit of the project’s objectives! The most important one: GUIDEnano tool v1 was released.
This version enables the user to model the life cycle of a nanomaterial-enabled product, from production until disposal. V1 focuses on the material flow, identifying relevant exposure/release and hazard hotspots. Future versions 2 and 3 will incorporate hazard and risk assessment as well as a decision module to support the user in selection of appropriate risk refinement and risk mitigation activities.
