Benign Nanomaterials

Nanotechnology is considered one of the key technologies of the 21st century – proven by rapidly growing numbers of products, turnover and jobs. With numerous innovative developments and products Germany is one of the worldwide leading nations in this area.

Due to their small size, the minute particles (below 100 nm – for comparison: a human hair is about 1,000 times as thick) have special characteristics, making them attractive for manifold applications. We fi nd the particles in, among others, varnishes, sports devices, textiles and cosmetics, in medicine and agriculture. Due to the diversity of applications and the increasing market numbers we can expect that nanoparticles will increasingly be found in the environment. Possible risks have hardly been explored, yet nanotechnology also has a great potential to reduce pressure on the environment, for example with respect to the consumption of raw materials and fuels.

It is thus obvious that nanotechnologies provide a wide and promising research area for the UFT. Already in 2007 a student research project dealt with risks of nanoparticles; theses, international cooperations and fi rst publications followed 1,2. The UFT could here especially score with its extensive infrastructure (ecotoxicological test battery, analytics) and on the grounds of its long-term interdisiciplinary cooperation in the fi eld of ionic liquids.

Supported by the former Bremer Investitionsgesellschaft (nowadays Bremen Invest), we started within our fi rst externally funded project a year-long and successful cooperation with the Bremer Umweltinstitut which also contributes to the two current research networks nanoToxCom and UMSICHT. The graduate school nanoToxCom deals with toxic combination effects of manufactured metal-based nanoparticles (silver, iron oxides). The whole life cycle of the particles shall be characterised. To achieve this, three focal areas were formed within the school. The fi rst area (contributing groups: Bäumer/Swiderek/ Thöming, Bremer Umweltinstitut BrUmI) addresses the production, characterisation and localisation of the nanoparticles, in the second area biochemical and biological effects of the particles are being studied (groups Dringen, Filser). The third area is working on exposure analyses, risk profi les and eco-balances based on measured data or literature study (AG Thöming, BrUmI, von Gleich). The PhD students address all research questions in a group-linkging approach. Altogether 8 scholarships have been granted. Additional PhD, Master and Bachelor theses are associated with the school. The school has received funding between 2009 and 2012. Main sponsor is the Hans-Böckler- Stiftung (HBS). The project “Environmental Competence nanomaterials“, fi nanced by the Senator for Enviroment, Construction, Traffi c and Europe in Bremen through the European Regional Development Fund 2007-2013 provides additional signifi cant funding for the school. Furthermore, the German association of the chemical industry (VCI) and the University of Bremen contribute to funding.

The acronym UMSICHT (derived from the German title) stands for “Assessing environmental hazards of silver nanomaterials – from chemical particles to technical products”. This project network is being funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) between 2010 and 2013 with more than 3 Mio. Euro. 17 partners from research, industry and regulation are working on a broad spectrum of questions. These range from producing, varying and characterising silver nanoparticles up to the stability of nanosilver-containing textiles during washing. With respect to hazards, we assess among other things how many particles could enter the environment at all, and we study effects on microorganisms and small animals in surface waters and soils. Via the contributing authorities – up to the German Minstry for the Environment and the Joint Research Centre of the EU – our results will also internationally contribute to the hazard assessment coordinated by the OECD.
