ABSTRACT

A UK University aims to design and develop a new method of production for a new raw material under the call H2020 NMBP-15-2019 to replace nickel compounds deregulated due to health, safety and environmental consequences of its use, thus reducing the environmental, health and safety risks and increasing the performance. They are seeking an industry partner in the field of chemical processing, ideally specialised in processing nickel compounds and with appropriate facilities.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The project outlined below will take place under the following H2020 call - NMBP-15-2019

Risk management involves quantifying hazard (toxicity) and exposure, and taking the necessary steps to reduce both to acceptable levels, ideally at an early stage of the nanomaterial development process (Safe-by-Design). Various industrial sectors, and in particular structural or functional materials, coatings and cosmetics, as well as pharma and health technology are currently searching for ways to mitigate possible risks from nanomaterials and nano-containing products.

The challenge now is to distil existing methods into simple, robust, cost-effective methods for monitoring and modelling of physical-chemical properties and biological effect assessment of nanomaterials in relevant use conditions including in product-relevant matrices.

The project will result in a new safe by design method that enable reduction of hazard and exposure through design to an acceptable risk level without affecting the material performance and guide development of safer products at different stages.

The methods will need to be demonstrated and validated in the relevant environment for which a participation of an industrial partner in the field of chemical processing is necessary.

The University leading this project already has 5 partners (3 from academia and 2 from industry) and now seeks an industrial partner who specialises in chemical testing and processing and can assist with providing access to facilities and lab testing.

EOI Deadline: 31st March 2018
Call Deadline: 22nd Jan 2019


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: Industry partner in the field of chemical processing, ideally specialised in processing nickel compounds and with appropriate facilities.

Role:

Provide the relevant environment to validate low-cost techniques for delivering an integrated exposure driven risk assessment and the associated design of the required post-use monitoring.

Provide data/samples for analysis

Guide or support with designing a new reactor etc. This work will need to be carried out at research facility or a University institute
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Industry partner who specialise or are in the field of chemical processing, ideally specialised in processing nickel compounds and with appropriate facilities and laboratories for testing.

Role: provide the relevant environment to validate low-cost techniques for delivering an integrated exposure driven risk assessment and the associated design of the required post-use monitoring


Advantages & innovations:

The innovativeness of the production methods of the designed material would have a have a positive impact on the environment and human health. Moreover, methods to be developed should be simple, robust, cost-effective and safe to use.

A number of different industries will benefit from these developments, given the vast range of its uses. The expected impact is:

- Safe by design approaches and tools at an early stage of the nanomaterial development process;

- Quality workplaces that ensure maximum technical and economic performance in line with acceptable risk levels;

- Control and mitigate exposure to acceptable risk level in case after release of nanomaterials from products.
