Life cycle analysis

Life cycle analysis?

Over the last decade, the volume of production and the variety of applications of engineered nanomaterials has steadily increased. The nanomaterials evolve during their whole life cycle. The life cycle analysis, from the production to waste, is an essential approach which takes into account the recycling at the end of life.

This module is based on the nanomaterial life cycle. The different critical phases and the waste elimination are specified. The risks and the "safer by design" approach are also detailed.
