The main objective of this research proposal is to identify and elaborate those characteristics of ENM that determine their biological hazard potential. This potential includes the ability of ENM to induce damage at the cellular, tissue, or organism levels by interacting with cellular structures leading to impairment of key cellular functions. These adverse effects may be mediated by ENM-induced a ...

Many efforts have been put on the reduction of the Pt loading but nowadays a threshold seems to be obtained. Because the kinetics of the Hydrogen Oxidation Reaction is very fast on Pt, it is possible to use MEA with a Pt loading as low as 35 µgPt/cm-2 without any effect on the voltage loss when such an anode is used in front of a well working cathode. But, the Oxygen Reduction Reaction kinetics is ...

Currently, best flame retardant formulations are still often based on halogenated flame retardants (FR). Those halogneted FR are supsected to endcrine disrupters when leaching from the material and produce toxic fumes and acids (HBr, HCl, organoirritants, PCDD/Fs etc.).DEROCA project aims at (i) developing and introducing new safer and more eco-friendly FRs through exploiting the synergistic effe ...

Managing Risks of Nanoparticles (MARINA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2011, End date: Oct 31, 2015,

While there are standard procedures for product life cycle analysis, exposure, hazard, and risk assessment for traditional chemicals, is not yet clear how these procedures need to be modified to address all the novel properties of nanomaterials. There is a need to develop specific reference methods for all the main steps in managing the potential risk of ENM. The aim of MARINA is to develop such ...

Mutation of transport industry to carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRC) is now ineluctable in order to reduce our mobility environmental imprint. This sector is at a turn of its conversion from metal to composite, which should impose a radical rethinking of the whole supply chain. Combined developments of materials and matched processes is the main strategy of IMS&CPS project, only such a concert ...

Composite Structural Power Storage for Hybrid Vehicles (StorAGE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Jun 30, 2013,

Weight is a premium; any material which does not contribute to load-carrying capacity is structurally parasitic. The focus of StorAGE is an key example; energy storage. Conventional design attempts to maximise the efficiency of the individual subcomponents. A different approach is to create novel multifunctional materials that simultaneously perform more than one function, thus offering significan ...
