ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report "Nanotechnology and Life Cycle Assessment: A Systems Approach to Nanotechnology and the Environment," by the European Commission and the U.S.-based Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars. The report encourages using and developing products based on nanotechnology to adopt full life-cycle assessment program. It says implementing life-cycle assessment can help businesses determine likely environmental impacts at various stages of a product's use.
