Book Description :

The importance of construction and infrastructures cannot be undermined. Buildings, roads, bridges, dams, transportation systems, and other infrastructures have brought the nations of the world together in many ways and made it a much smaller place. This chapter mainly talks about the world’s construction industry and the advancement of new materials and technologies in the field of nanotechnology. It also discusses the shift toward sustainable development in the construction industry and how this development is applied by construction companies. Nanotechnology is pushing construction and infrastructure industries to use more efficient nanomaterials in order to make “smarter” building structures and infrastructures. However, the role of various nanomaterials in the construction industry has been debated. The widespread trend of using nanomaterials has been discouraged because of the biological and environmental health and safety impacts of using nanomaterials in construction and infrastructures. Governmental agencies are currently playing a major role in establishing rules and regulations that govern proper and efficient handling and use of nanomaterials. This study provides a look at the current situation and offers suggestions for continuing on our path toward sustainable development in the field.

Book Description :

Nanotechnology is one of the emerging areas of science, mathematics, technology, and engineering in the 21st century. It has been instrumental in the manufacture of a variety of new products. These products are a result of our exploitation of the unique properties of matter that can emerge in scales of 1 to 100 nanometers. Although the great advantages of nanotechnology and its related products can be exploited, there is still much that can be done in exploring related safety issues, especially as they relate to the electronics and telecommunications industries, which is the subject of this chapter. These safety concerns relate to the potential detrimental effects of nanotechnology materials and devices on humans and the environment. The safety issues must be addressed to protect life and the environment while enhancing innovation, public confidence, and societal benefits that nanotechnology can offer as it is applied to the electronics and telecommunications industries.

Book Description :

Nanomaterials are of interest in many biomedical applications for potential enhancements in structural strength of bone implants, controlled drug release, improved chemical interactions, and scaffolding for cell in-growth and tissue replacement. Unfortunately, the key changes in material properties that enhance performance seem to lead in some cases to increased toxicity. By shifting the distribution of wear particle sizes to smaller individual particles, adverse effects may be created, either directly from the nanoparticle interactions or through intermediary species, such as reactive oxygen. Either way, biological activity often seems to be dependent on particle size, and deleterious side effects and workplace hazards must be evaluated and avoided.

Book Description :

This Handbook focuses on the recent advancements in Safety, Risk, Ethical Society and Legal Implications (ESLI) as well as its commercialization of nanotechnology, such as manufacturing. Nano is moving out of its relaxation phase of scientific route, and as new products go to market, organizations all over the world, as well as the general public, are discussing the environmental and health issues associated with nanotechnology. Nongovernmental science organizations have long since reacted; however, now the social sciences have begun to study the cultural portent of nanotechnology. Societal concerns and their newly constructed concepts, show nanoscience interconnected with the economy, ecology, health, and governance. This handbook addresses these new challenges and is divided into 7 sections: Nanomaterials and the Environment; Life Cycle Environmental Implications of Nanomanufacturing; Bioavailability and Toxicity of Manufactured Nanoparticles in Terrestrial Environments; Occupational Health Hazards of Nanoparticles; Ethical Issues in Nanotechnology; Commercialization of Nanotechnology; Legalization of Nanotechnology.

Book Description :

The projected economic and societal benefits of nanotechnology have propelled global investments by nations and companies. The United States launched the first national nanotechnology initiative in 2000. Since then, more than 60 nations have launched similar initiatives. In 2006, global public investment in nanotechnology was estimated to be $6.4 billion, with an additional $6.0 billion provided by the private sector. More than 600 nanotechnology products are now in the market, generally offering incremental improvements over existing products. However, proponents maintain that nanotechnology research and development currently underway could offer revolutionary applications with significant implications for the U.S. economy, national and homeland security, and societal well-being. These investments, coupled with nanotechnology's potential implications, have raised interest and concerns about the U.S. competitive position. The data used to assess competitiveness in mature technologies and industries, such as revenues and market share, are not available for assessing nanotechnology. In fact, the U.S. government does not currently collect such data for nanotechnology, nor is comparable international data available. Without this information, an authoritative assessment of the U.S. competitive position is not possible. Alternatively, indicators of U.S. scientific and technological strength (e.g., public and private research investments, nanotechnology papers published in scientific journals, patents) may provide insight into the current U.S. position and serve as bellwethers of future competitiveness. By these criteria, the United States appears to be the overall global leader in nanotechnology. However, other nations are investing heavily and may lead in specific areas of nanotechnology. Some believe the U.S. leadership position in nanotechnology may not be as large as it has been in previous emerging technologies. Efforts to develop and commercialise nanotechnology face a variety of challenges - e.g., technical hurdles; availability of capital; environmental, health, and safety concerns; and immature manufacturing technology and infrastructure. Some advocate a more active federal government role in overcoming these challenges, including funding to aid in the translation of research to commercial products; general and targeted tax provisions; incentives for capital formation; increased support for development of manufacturing and testing infrastructure, standards and nomenclature development, and education and training; creation of science, technology, and innovation parks; and efforts to establish a stable and predictable regulatory environment that keeps pace with innovation. Some support a more limited federal role. Some who hold this view maintain that the market, free from government interventions, is most efficient. They assert that federal efforts can create market distortions and result in the federal government picking "winners and losers" among technologies, companies, and industries. Others oppose federal support for industrial research and applications, labelling such efforts "corporate welfare." Still others argue for a moratorium on nanotechnology R&D until environmental, health, and safety concerns are addressed.

Book Description :

Nanotechnology is a much talked about, and rapidly expanding area of science, which is sometimes little understood. It looks set to make a significant impact on human life and, with numerous commercial developments emerging, will become a major industry over the coming years. Nanotechnology can be broadly described as developing or exploiting products at nanometre dimensions (i.e. as having one dimension less than 100 nanometres). Such materials have a larger surface area to volume ratio than conventional materials which provides them with an increased level of reactivity, and consequently, toxicity per unit mass. This book sets the subject into context by first of all describing the current range of products containing nano-materials and then looking at the consequences for the environment and human health relating to the introduction of nanoparticles and nano-tubes. Nanotechnology: Consequences for Human Health and the Environment discusses some of the more controversial issues associated with the field including: nanoparticles in the environment, occupational exposure, toxicological properties, human health issues and safety. This authoritative and comprehensive book will be of interest to both scientists and technologists but also to regulators and government. This title is also available in hardback.

Book Description :

This new book from the National Research Council finds serious weaknesses in the government's plan for research on the potential health and environmental risks posed by nanomaterials, which are increasingly being used in consumer goods and industry. An effective national plan for identifying and managing potential risks is essential to the successful development and public acceptance of nanotechnology-enabled products. The book recommends a robust national strategic plan for addressing nanotechnology-related EHS risks, which will need to focus on promoting research that can assist all stakeholders, including federal agencies, in planning, controlling, and optimizing the use of engineered nanomaterials while minimizing EHS effects of concern to society. Such a plan will ensure the timely development of engineered nanoscale materials that will bring about great improvements in the nation's health, its environmental quality, its economy, and its security.
