Innovamol, in conjunction with the European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON), has produced a pivotal report examining the effects of graphene and other 2D materials on health and the environment. This comprehensive study, spanning a decade’s worth of public data, delves into the unique properties and widespread applications of graphene in areas like electronics, biomedical engineering, and energy storage. With graphene’s growing prevalence, the study importantly highlights the necessity for enhanced safety research, pointing out potential risks, particularly in environments close to production sites. The report underlines the cytotoxic impacts of specific graphene types and emphasizes the need for detailed reporting in future research to draw more precise conclusions about their toxicity and ecotoxicity.
At Innovamol, we’re not just participants in this groundbreaking study; we’re contributing in a field that touches nearly every aspect of modern technology and environmental safety. This isn’t just about research; it’s about shaping the future. Our systematic review using the LitSearch FULL approach marks a significant milestone in both product development and regulatory frameworks. Recognizing the versatile application of nanomaterials, we see the urgent need to structure and analyse data more effectively. Imagine a world where all data on nanomaterials is accessible, analytically organized in a comprehensive database – that’s the future we’re aiming to build.”
