REEIS USDA - Programme de recherche 2007-2008 : BIOCIDE ENCAPSULATED NANOTUBES FOR CELLULOSIC COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS. Performing Department (N/A) Non Technical Summary (A)The problem with using wood in building construction, is its susceptibility to mold, fungi, and termite infestation, resulting in over $1B/year damage and heighten health concerns.
(B) Currently used, unencapsulated biocides have the problem of readily leaching or evaporating out and thus being effective for relatively short periods of time. (C) There is a potential health concern due to uncontrolled release of biocide from treated wood composites. (D) There is a need for a biocide carrier system that will enable easy mixing of the active biocide within wood product material while protecting the biocide during the material processing.
(E) To compensate for leaching issues or partial biocide decomposition during the wood product's processing, a superfluous amount of biocide is added.

ARS USDA 30/06/14 Nanoparticle-based Coating Helps Stop Water from Beading. By Marcia Wood June 30, 2014 Rainwater pounding on the glass windows of an office building or a home is less likely to bead up and reduce visibility if the windows are treated with a new, transparent coating from U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA) chemist Sanghoon Kim and his colleagues. Besides its potential use on windows, the coating might also be applied to solar panels to help keep dirt from interfering with their performance, Kim notes. What's more, Kim and his colleagues have observed that the coating works well on other materials, including Plexiglas and metals such as stainless steel.

FAO 19/07/13 FAO/WHO Paper: State of the art on the initiatives and activities relevant to risk assessment and risk management o. Science and technology at the nanoscale promise to be among the most innovative fields in decades.
Nanotechnologies allow for the possibility to control and modify material and systems at the nanoscale level to obtain significantly altered characteristics from those present at larger scale. A number of emerging nanotechnologies seem to have the potential to provide significant benefits in various fields including the food, water and agriculture sectors. New and emerging applications such as water purification systems, rapid pathogen and chemical contaminant detection systems, and nano-enabled renewable energy technologies applied along the food chain are expected to provide developing countries with new tools to address some of the challenges to sustainable agricultural and irrigation development as well as food safety and food security.

FSA - DOSSIER NANOTECHNOLOGY. FSA 21/04/11 Views on nanotechnology: research published. The main findings of the research are that: Participants’ reactions to nanotechnology and food reflected a variety of concerns.
These included whether this was a necessary development, whose interests would be served by it and whether the benefits outweighed the perceived risks.Acceptance around the use of nanotechnology was conditional. For instance, participants were more positive about the use of nanotechnology to reduce the salt or fat content of foods without adversely affecting the taste or texture of food. However, participants were negative towards the use of nanotechnology for what they perceived to be 'trivial' purposes, such as using nanotechnology to develop new flavours and textures.Participants were relatively more open to the use of nanotechnology in food packaging, and readily identified the potential benefits of extended shelf life and waste reduction.

Nanoscience and nanotechnologies: opportunities and uncertainties Our report on nanotechnologies - ‘Nanoscience and nanotechnologies: opportunities and uncertainties’ - was published on 29 July 2004.
The report illustrates the fact that nanotechnologies offer many benefits both now and in the future but that public debate is needed about their development. It also highlights the immediate need for research to address uncertainties about the health and environmental effects of nanoparticles – one small area of nanotechnologies. It also makes recommendations about regulation to control exposure to nanoparticles. We hope that you find the report of interest, and welcome your feedback on it (see Send us your comments). In order to make it easier and quicker to access, the main report has been split into chapters below. Click here to view the full report (pdf 3,511 kb)

FSAI 08/04/09 Leaflet: Nanotechnology and Food. Wednesday, 8 April 2009 Nanotechnology involves the use of very small particles (nanoparticles) that have an average size, in at least one dimension, of one hundred nanometers (nm) or less.
A nanometer is one hundred billionths of a metre. Nanotechnology is viewed by the food industry as a means of enhancing food safety and nutrient bioavailability, with some examples already on the market in certain parts of the world. An information leaflet, recently produced by the FSAI, is designed to provide a brief and objective overview to inform stakeholders about nanotechnology and how it relates to our food in terms of its potential uses, safety and regulation. Though still an emerging science, nanotechnology has been used for some time in the production of goods such as cosmetics, and holds significant promise as a tool in the diagnosis and treatment of certain human illnesses.
