Draft CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) on ‘Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework'

The draft project plan describes and specifies the requirements of a simplified Sustainability Nanomanufacturing Framework (SNF) for sustainability management in nanomanufacturing pilot lines (NPLs), appropriate to their size, management capabilities and sustainability priorities.

The SNF sets up the basic requirements for a screening methodology to quickly assess the sustainability of a NPL. It provides guidance for diagnosis, implementation, and monitoring, to proactively improve nano-sustainability performance in NPLs, considering its sustainability management and results. The model can be used by NPLs to achieve its intended outcomes in the field of nano-sustainability.
