Feds award grants for nanotech projects

WASHINGTON � The US EPA recently awarded grants to 12 universities to investigate the potential health and environmental impacts of nanomaterials, and nanotechnology designed to protect the environment, including applications in the water treatment industry, according to a news release.

Currently, there is limited scientific information on the effects of nanomaterials on human health and the environment, the EPA said.

Nanotechnology, the release reported, allows scientists to work at the molecular level, atom by atom, to create materials and structures with fundamentally new functions and characteristics.
