The Nanosafety Platform supports the CEA's partners on
health, safety, and environmental prevention issues arising from the use of nanomaterials or the unintentional release of
nanoparticles into the atmosphere. The platform is located in a brand-new, 5,000 m² facility staffed by experts whose multidisciplinary know-how covers the entire nanomaterials lifecycle (manufacturing, integration, use, and end-of-life, including recycling). It is the leading center for expertise in France and across Europe, with a wide variety of activities.
CEA-Liten is a member of the Safetipaint 1 and 2 project consortia. These projects leveraged a safer-by-design approach to developing wear- and aging-resistant paints that also improve indoor air quality.
In research conducted for the EU INTEGRAL project, Liten, a CEA Tech institute, helped scale up second-generation thermoelectric materials and validation-test their use on functional thermoelectric generator demonstrators.
Reliable and reproducible nanomaterials characterization protocols have been developed at Liten and are now available to businesses for their nanomaterials testing campaigns.
