    • Characterization of Particle Emissions and Fate of Nanomaterials During Incineration 

      Vejerano, Eric P.; Leon, Elena C.; Holder, Amara L.; Marr, Linsey C. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-24)
      As the use of nanotechnology in consumer products continues to grow, it is inevitable that some nanomaterials will end up in the waste stream and will be incinerated. Through laboratory-scale incineration of paper and ...
    • Environmental science and engineering applications of nanocellulose-based nanocomposites 

      Wei, Haoran; Rodriguez, Katia; Renneckar, Scott; Vikesland, Peter J. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-26)
      Compared with cellulose, the primary component of the paper we use every day, nanocellulose has a much smaller diameter (typically <10 nm) that renders it many unique properties. Amongst many others, these properties include ...
    • Toxicity of Particulate Matter from Incineration of Nanowaste 

      Vejerano, Eric P.; Ma, Yanjun; Holder, Amara L.; Pruden, Amy; Elankumaran, Subbiah; Marr, Linsey C. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-13)
      Disposal of some nanomaterial-containing waste by incineration and the subsequent formation of particulate matter (PM) along with hazardous combustion by-products are inevitable. The effect of nanomaterials on the toxicity ...
