Abstract

This report presents ecotoxicological data and Predicted No-Effect Concentrations (PNECs) for nine selected nanomaterials which are considered to be environmentally relevant due to high usage or how they are used. These data will together with data from other reports/projects be used in an overall assessment of the environmental risk of nanomaterials in Denmark.

The nine investigated nanomaterials are: Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Silver, Carbon Nanotubes, Copper Oxide, Nano Zero Valent Iron, Cerium Dioxide, Quantum Dots and Carbon Black.

To support the assessment of the data found in the peer reviewed scientific literature, the current project has developed a scoring system that evaluates the liability and relevance of the data in relation to nanomaterials.
