    How do you see the regulatory environment developing over the coming 5 years Mr Bushong Given the truth of Dr Roco s predictions which we can all see evolving before our eyes there is no doubt that the massive increase of nanomaterials in the marketplace will coincide with a similar increase in interest and oversight of their safety not only by regulators but by other interested parties The truth of the matter is that all Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies that manufacturer anything are utilizing nanomaterials either directly or through their supply chain Increased regulatory oversight is bound to occur The Japanese and Koreans are implementing rules as well The bottom line is that industry needs to be responsible and test the safety of their engineered nanoparticles before they scale up production and expose either their employees consumers or the environment to unknown risks Industry leaders that are proactive on Health and Safety will have a competitive advantage in the market place We are starting to see it now NanoBCA What other interested parties are you referring to Mr Bushong Well there have been some very significant developments in the last year or so outside the realm of just the regulatory agencies First the class action litigation against Johnson Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics which involved alleged damage done to patients related to a nanocoating on their hip implants has caused a significant increase in interest to better understand safety data of nanomaterials in products Johnson Johnson s settlements in that case are at around 3 Billion and still growing Secondly Dunkin Donuts as you know just acquiesced to pressure from an advocacy group to remove titanium dioxide nanoparticles from its powdered donuts This development just scratches the surface of nanomaterials that are currently in the marketplace in food food packaging and cosmetics not to mention many other products The visibility and broad media coverage of the Dunkin Donuts decision has put a spotlight on the issue of nanosafety and has greatly increased interest among a broad spectrum of stakeholders And finally in light of these developments the insurance sector has taken a much more focused approach to issues of nanosafety And so there are a lot of forces at work outside of the regulatory agencies that are driving serious interest in the services that we provide at Nano Risk Assessment International Ltd and our affiliated companies NanoBCA Harry can you provide us with a little more technical detail of why companies should engage with Nano Risk Assessment International Ltd Mr Bushong Great question Let me start with the basic summary and we can expand from there As we all know the physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials are particles known to be significantly unique from materials having larger crystallites but with the same chemical composition This allows for optimal business applications of these unique nanoparticle properties that companies engineer into their products which function better than the commonly used micro scaled materials of the 20 th Century Characterization of these nanomaterials is possible and highly recommended by us with analytical chemical methods in typical environments from a life cycle management perspective recognizing the cost of ownership perspective from cradle to grave This is very important for responsible advanced material development By responsible I mean that companies that engage in this effort will greatly reduce the risks that they potentially adverse action by regulatory agency action consumer legal action or that they fall short of requirements demanded by sought after investors or insurers In the long run adherence to these emerging national standards for safety also reduces regulatory burden and oversight thus creating a total cost of ownership savings not just a business cost At Nano Risk Assessment International Ltd we have the team and knowhow to assist and we are seeing that a growing number of companies are finding value in making strategic and smart decisions regarding their safety program NanoBCA Thank you for inviting the NanoBCA to serve on the judges panel for your NanoArt Contest It s a terrific program and an honor for us to be involved How did the NanoArt Contest get started Mr Bushong The contest has exceeded our expectations and continues to engage great young minds across the world The first year we focused on French PhD students in STEM education fields In Year 2 we expanded to include students across Europe This year we ve included U S PhD students You can learn more at www fondation nanosciences fr I encourage everyone to spread the word We have great prizes a monthly 200 winner and our top 3 annual prizes are 5 000 3 000 and 2 000 Our contest organizer is the Foundation Nanoscience based in Grenoble France NanoBCA Harry thank you for your time and thoughtful responses We wish you luck and look forward to seeing

    NASA where as Chief of the Polymers Branch at the Glenn Research Center I launched one of the first research efforts with NASA focused on the development of nanomaterials technologies Around 1999 or so NASA started a long term relationship with Dr Richard Smalley of Rice University to focus on scaling up his HiPCO process to produce single wall carbon nanotubes so that we could have a sufficient quantity to evaluate as an additive for polymers We were fortunate to be a part of that activity The scale up approach developed under this activity led to Carbon Nanotechnologies Inc So I guess you can say that I have been involved with the science of nanotechnology for over 30 years NanoBCA From a career perspective what led you to become the Director at NNCO Dr Meador Over the course of my career I have been involved in all aspects of nanotech research and development at a variety of levels within NASA from managing activities in my branch to more recently managing a NASA wide project in nanotechnology For the past four years I also served as NASA s principal representative to the NSET which gave me a broader perspective on nanotech R D at the Federal government level It seemed like a very natural progression to aspire to a position like this at NNCO where I could give back in a leadership role and utilize my unique career experience with regards to nanotechnology Personally it is very exciting for me to be in a position to help push the NNI forward especially now that it is at a crossroads in that it is coming out of a research and development focused effort to a more defined commercialization effort NanoBCA The 21 st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act was signed into law on December 3 2003 What do you see as the major successes of this Act and what needs to be done going forward Dr Meador If not for National Nanotechnology Initiative NNI which preceded and was then reauthorized by the 21 st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act certain industries would not have been created or at a minimum would have been created at a much later date That alone is a very significant accomplishment of the NNI For instance the quantum dot industry would not be where it is today if not for the NNI As you know Sony announced a new TV recently at the Consumer Electronics Show that will incorporate quantum dots produced by QD Vision Inc to enhance picture quality QD Vision won the 2014 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award from the U S Environmental Protection Agency which is the highest domestic honor in the field recognizing chemical technologies that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design manufacture and use So it is clear that the quantum dot industry is making an important impact on our economy and our environment and it is an industry that is here to stay Another example is the carbon nanotube sector with companies like Nanocomp Technologies Inc that are producing materials that not only reduce weight but also greatly improve strength in all sorts of products Moving forward we are honing our focus on supporting and expanding success stories like these particularly as they relate to the commercialization of nanotechnologies To that end Dr Lisa Friedersdorf NNCO Deputy Director and I have plans to visit all NSET agencies to talk about their agency s vision and the NNCO s vision and to try to establish a plan to more effectively work together to achieve the collective goals of the NNI We recently visited the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology which is truly a world class facility This is yet another example of the success of the 21 st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act and reflects the tangible return on investment from that piece of legislation So I think there are a number of examples where nanotechnologies have definitely established a presence in the marketplace but there is much more that we can do to facilitate the commercialization of nanotechnologies NanoBCA What is your plan to further impact commercialization Dr Meador Success will come from good communications and a focused effort to have NNI agencies work directly with industry to identify and address any roadblocks to commercialization To that end the NNCO has initiated a webinar series to highlight problems that industry is facing with regards to nanotech commercialization This has proven to be a great communications vehicle to provide information especially to small and medium sized business on topics like insurance and regulations that could help them be more successful in their commercialization efforts These webinars are scheduled to occur once every other month and are designed to be easily accessible to the broadest audience NanoBCA One of the challenges that we see regularly at the NanoBCA is to address the question of whether or not the over 20 billion that was invested by the 21 st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act was worthwhile from a taxpayers perspective Is this a question with which you are confronted Dr Meador Yes this is a very important question that needs to be addressed loudly and clearly and provide a compelling justification for the past and continued investment in the NNI Fortunately I have benefitted from sitting on NSET through the critical years and have had a front row seat to witness the impact of this investment As I mentioned before there are tangible examples of the return on investment that can be seen in the establishment of new industries and new products which also not insignificantly mean new jobs Also there has been the establishment of critical new infrastructure like the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology However it is critically important that the news of these returns be communicated clearly to all stakeholders which includes the taxpayer the media and the broader community beyond just those in industry and government who happen to
