Ernesto Alfaro is the guest editor of a “Nanomaterials” special issue

February 3, 2021

The scientific journal “Nanomaterials” invited INL Group Leader of Nanosafety, Ernesto Alfaro, to be the editor of a special issue about “Health, Environment, and Nanosafety”.

For Ernesto Alfaro, the relevance of the topic is self-evident, since “the development of nanotechnology and the use of nanomaterials have experienced exponential growth, and it is estimated that by 2022 the market of these nanomaterials may reach revenue of 9.1 billion USD in Europe only”.

Although the awareness about nanoparticles toxicity has been increasing and the ‘safe by design’ concept is also a growing concern, “there is still a long way to go” and that is why “this special issue wants to bring light to the relevant research that is being performed on the subject”.
