In order to guarantee the safety of CNT and products based on them, it is necessary to evaluate and appropriately communicate potential risks. This requires detailed knowledge of possible exposure paths and the effect of CNT in conjunction with biological systems. The development of the corresponding test methods for the determination of exposure and the characterization of CNT are essential parts of this approach. The cross-sectional project CarboSafe of the Innovation Alliance CNT addresses these challenges. The fundament of the project work is the development of well-grounded measuring technologies that are able to clearly detect the release rates of nanoparticles throughout the lifecycle of products based on CNT. Moreover, the CarboSafe project plans to identify the eco-toxicology potential of CNT and to arrive at a precise estimate of the risk potential on the basis of the developed measurement technologies.
