Multidimensional integrated quantitative approach to assess safety and sustainability of nanomaterials in real case life cycle scenarios using nanospecific impact categories

Objectives of the project

The following four NMs Life Cycle Stages (LCS) are addressed: synthesis, incorporation, use phase and end-of-life. The application of the stage-gate SSbD process through the LCS addresses performance in the five dimensions (5D s): Safety, Environmental, Economic, Social and Functional. Generation of dedicated response functions will allow associating Key Decision Factors (KDFs, such as: concentrations, processing parameters, etc.) to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs, such as: occupational safety, CO2 emissions, job creation potential, NM cost, antibacterial functionality, etc.). SSbD NMs solutions will be obtained by Multi Objective Optimisation Design (MOOD) dedicated algorithm.

Our involvement in the project

Project Hub 360 plays an important role in contribution to consortium formation and proposal development. We mainly operate in: Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD), Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), Life Cycle Costs (LCC), Social Life Cycle Assessments (S-LCA) and Communication and Dissemination of the project.
