LITTLE IS KNOWN about what happens to nanoparticles when they end up in landfills or in wastewater treatment plants, or when they are incinerated. But as more and more consumer products made with nanotechnology hit the market, researchers are beginning to ask questions related to safe design and disposal of nanoscale materials.

These questions were at the heart of a two-day workshop in March sponsored by the International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON) at . . .
