Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies and Consumers Union collaborate on 'ConsumersTalkNano'
Date:9/26/2007

the publics first introduction to nanotechnology. Public confidence in this new technology depends on responsible development that includes full assessment and communication of potential risks as well as benefits, said Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies Director David Rejeski.

A program like ConsumersTalkNano is long overdue. Since fiscal year 2001, the U.S. has invested over $8 billion in nanotechnology research. In 2006 alone, over $12 billion was spent worldwide on nanotechnology research and development by governments and industry. But little has been devoted to researching safety and other impacts on consumers. Outreach efforts like ConsumersTalkNano can help fill the nano knowledge gap, said Rejeski.

Last year, nanotechnology was incorporated into more than $50 billion in manufactured goods. An online list of more than 500 company-identified nanotechnology consumer productson the market in shopping malls or over the Internetis available at www.nanotechproject.org/consumerproducts. The list includes merchandise from such well-known brands as Samsung, Chanel, Black & Decker, Wilson and Eddie Bauer. It can be searched by company, product name, category, or country.

Between now and October 23-24, the ConsumersTalkNano website (www.webdialogues.net/pen/consumer) will be updated regularly with videos, podcasts, and links to information about nanotechnology. The dialogue is free but participants are asked to register.
