At DTU Environment we work at the highest international level to develop new environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies. We disseminate this knowledge to society and new generations of engineers. Our activities in research, teaching and innovation are focused on: Environmental Chemistry, Resource Engineering, Urban Water Engineering and Water Resources Engineering.

The research team in NanoRisk at DTU Environment studies the ecotoxicity, environmental fate & behaviour and risk assessment procedures for engineered nanoparticles. We have been involved in several research projects receiving both national and international funding, e.g. the EU FP7 projects NanoImpactNet, SUN (Sustainable Nanomaterials), MARINA (Managing Risks of Nanomaterials) and Engineered Nanoparticles - Review of Health and Environmental Safety (ENRHES), MARINA and NanoImpactNet. In all these projects we contributed with in-depth knowledge on aquatic ecotoxicology and fate and behaviour of engineered nanoparticles.

The NanoRisk research team has delivered training courses for the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and expert advice to the European Commission’s Scientific Committee for Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) in the area of environmental hazards and risk of engineered nanomaterials.
