CTT GROUP RESEARCHER, PATRICIA DOLEZ, LAUNCHES NEW BOOK ON NANOENGINEERING

SAINT-HYACINTHE, QC, CA, July 30, 2015 – Patricia Dolez, researcher at CTT Group, is pleased to announce the release of her book, titled "Nano-engineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues”. 

This book provides a global vision on the impact of engineered nanomaterials on both, the consumer/general public and occupational settings. The readers will get a peek into the future of nano-materials and their effects on our lives, both at home and at work. They will also find crucial information on nanomaterials' irreplaceable value as well as the potential risks for health, safety, and the environment associated with their use. This book will:

  • Provide a global vision on the different aspects related to nano-safety and a synthesis of the information available, with perspectives on world initiatives
  • Give all the information required for precision decision-making in a single book, covering both, general public and occupational aspects
  • Contain separate chapters on each subject written by world-renowned contributors
  • Include case studies that illustrate important processes using nanomaterials

Published by Elsevier Publishing, "Nano-engineering: Global Approaches to Health and Safety Issues” was released on June 4th, 2015 and is available online and in specialized bookstores.

About Patricia Dolez
Patricia Dolez, Eng., Ph.D., is a researcher at CTT Group (St-Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada), a Testing and R&D Laboratory specialized in technical textiles, textile-based advanced materials, geosynthetics, and polymers. Her R&D activities are related to the application of nanotechnologies, smart textiles, natural fibres, and recycled materials in geosynthetics, building materials, and protective clothing. She got interested in the subject of protection against nanoparticles while working with the Research Chair in Protective Materials and Equipment for Occupational Safety and Health at ÉTS (École de Technologie Supérieure) of Montreal. There and together with her team, she designed a method for measuring the penetration of nano-particles through textile-based and polymer protective membranes in conditions simulating occupational use. Dr. Dolez has authored more than 90 publications and holds a portfolio of several industrial achievements.
