Nano-awareness Survey for SMEs

Know your Nano-score!

Nanomaterials are substances with extremely small particle sizes, typically between 1 and 100 nanometres.

Possible business advantages of knowing your Nano-status:

Awareness: Understanding if and how you’re using nanomaterials can provide clarity on your processes and potential opportunities or risks associated with them.

Innovation and Competitiveness: Identifying the use of nanomaterials could open doors to innovative and more competitive solutions, allowing you to stand out in the market.

Regulatory Compliance: Knowing your use of nanomaterials can help ensure compliance with regulations and safety requirements, avoiding sanctions and legal issues.

We encourage you to respond to these questions on behalf of the DIAGONAL analysis regarding your nanomaterial business. Your cooperation will help us provide targeted solutions to enhance your operations and competitiveness.

Thank you for your time and participation.

Nano-awareness Survey for SMEs
Stage 1 – Raw Materials
Answer the questions with as much information as you have!

Do you extract or receive material with fine particle matter? (ex. Powders, dispersions)

Do your processes of packaging or transport maybe produce fine particle matter?*

Stage 2 – Processing and Manufacturing

Do you purposely reduce the size of your ingredient/material to fine particle matter OR synthesize fine particle matter?

If yes, do you employ any of the following methods?

Is it possible that fine particles are generated as a byproduct of your processing / manufacturing activities?

If yes, do you carry out any of the following activities?

Stage 3 – Application

Do you include fine particles in your final product formulation? (stand-alone, dispersed, functionalized, encapsulated)

If yes, in what ways are your fine particles included in your final product?

Are fine particles generated as a byproduct of your application activities?

If yes, do you carry out any of the following activities?

Post-Gate Stages

Does the intended use, recycling activity, or disposal activity of the product release fine particle matter?

If yes, are any of the following scenarios included?
