Nanotechnology for Sustainable Manufacturing
As a matter of fact, renewable energy applications probably are the areas where nanotechnology will make its first large-scale commercial breakthroughs see: Nanotechnology applications could provide the required energy breakthroughs. Conflicting with this positive message is the growing body of research that raises questions about the potentially negative effects of engineered nanoparticles on human health and the environment.
This area includes the actual processes of manufacturing nanomaterials and the environmental footprint they create, in absolute terms and in comparison with existing industrial manufacturing processes read more: "Nanotechnology - not that green? In order to make any conclusive observations, 'green' nanotechnology requires a full life cycle assessment like any other industrially manufactured products.

The practice began in the United States with the passage of the Pollution Prevention Act of , which established a national policy to prevent or reduce pollution at its source whenever feasible.
