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.

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. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES EUROPE 06/03/17 Water quality assessment in the “German River of the years 2014/2015”: how a case study on the impact of a storm water sedimentation basin displayed impairment of fish health in the Argen River (Southern Germany) Our results indicate background pollution with traffic-related and waste water-related compounds at the investigated field sites of the Argen River. Chemical analyses The chemical analyses indicated a toxic burden with micropollutants in fish and sediments at both of the investigated sampling sites. With regard to the investigated PAHs, the concentrations for naphthalene exceeded the environmental quality standards (EQS) defined by the European Parliament [26]. The exceedance of the EQS should be alarming since PAHs are known to have genotoxic and carcinogenic effects on fish, lead to morphological abnormalities in fish larvae, and also cause oxidative stress in the organs of exposed fish [7, 29–32]. Besides the aforementioned PAHs, PCBs and PBDEs were also detected in fish from the Argen River, with the measured concentrations for the sum of PBDEs also exceeding the EQS of the European Parliament [26].

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.

Genome Biol Evol. 2018 May 3. Ca. Endozoicomonas cretensis: a novel fish pathogen characterised by genome plasticity. Endozoicomonas bacteria are generally beneficial symbionts of diverse marine invertebrates including reef-building corals, sponges, sea squirts, sea slugs, molluscs and Bryozoans. In contrast, the recently reported Ca. Endozoicomonas cretensis was identified as a vertebrate pathogen, causing epitheliocystis in fish larvae resulting in massive mortality. The Royal Academy of Engineering - Rapport - Nanoscience and nanotechnologies: opportunities and uncertainties 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).

Highlights 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.

A., Mark Eakin, C., Friedman, C. S., Froelich, B., Hershberger, P. 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.

An American approach to sharing science The refreshingly independent event is organised by scientists once a year to get together with fellow scientists, and is not affiliated to any parent society. And its 43rd edition was held on 9-12 April 2018 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Starting with an after-dinner “Aquatic Detective” session, veterinarians and pathologists described their differential diagnostic approaches showing uncommon pathology not only from teleost fish but also from elasmobranchs, lobsters and salamander. Intriguing clinical cases included the lymphocystis with bone proliferation in white crappie (Baumgartner), a rodlet cells-rich sarcoma in white suckers (Wolf and Smith), a branchioblastoma in bluegill sunfish (Law), and a nephroblastoma in mudpuppy (Standish). The second day had an intensive schedule, starting with a session on emerging fish viruses.
