Task 3.2: Release of MNM

Within Task 3.2, the release of MNM will be investigated using the IOM's 'JS Holdings rotating drum' dustiness testing instrument. Particle distributions will be monitored by using an array of the Institutes nanoparticle monitoring equipment. A variety of nanoparticles will be tested in this manner. 

Determining the relative dustiness of these materials is one of the elements which will aid the development of a generic ranking approach/model to estimate exposure of these particles in a variety of scenarios and conditions.
