Nanoengineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues

9780444627476: Nanoengineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues

Nanoengineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues provides a global vision on the impact of engineered nanomaterials both for the consumer/general public and in occupational settings. The book also presents a hint on what can be expected for the future from nanomaterials and their effects on our lives, both at home and at work. In addition, users will find valuable information on nanomaterials' irreplaceable value and their risks for health, safety, and environmental issues. Case studies illustrate key points and provide information on important processes.

  • Provides a global vision on the different aspects related to nanosafety and a synthesis of the information available
  • Gives all the information required for precision decision-making in a single book, offering both general public and occupational aspects
  • Contains separate chapters on each subject written by world-renowned contributors
  • Presents a complete vision of the problem, with perspectives on global approaches
  • Includes case studies that illustrate important processes

About the Author:

Dr. Dolez received her bachelor degree in electrochemistry and electrometallurgy from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble in France in 1993, and her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Sherbrooke in Québec, Canada, in 1998. She worked from 2005 to 2011 with the Research Chair in Protective Materials and Equipment for Occupational Safety and Health at the École de technologie supérieure (Montréal, QC, Canada) where she developed applied and fundamental knowledge regarding materials behaviour, especially polymers, elastomers, textiles and composites, when subjected to various types of mechanical and chemical aggressors, as well as aging, with a particular focus of personal protective equipment. During that time, she got interested in the subject of protection against nanoparticles. In particular, she designed a method for measuring the penetration of nanoparticles through textile and polymer protective membranes in conditions simulating occupation use. She currently works at CTT Group (Saint-Hyacinthe, QC, Canada). She is especially interested in the application of smart textiles, nanotechnologies, natural fibres and recycled materials in geosynthetics, building materials and protective clothing. Dr. Dolez has authored more than 90 publications, with several dedicated to knowledge transfer to workers and health & safety advisors, and holds four patent and patent disclosures.
