Draft CEN CWA on Sustainable Nanomanufacturing Framework

This document 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 quicky assess the sustainability of a NPL. It provides guidance for diagnosis, implementation, and monitoring, to proactively improve nano-sustainability performances 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.


The SNF is intended to be applied to any NPL regardless of its size, type and activities. Similarly, the model could be scaled to manage the sustainability of a manufacturing area/plant that integrates multiple NPLs.


This document can be used in whole or in part to systematically improve the sustainability in NPLs.


Comments can be submitted through the commenting form to the Workshop secretary, Mr. Fernando Machicado (fmachicado@une.org), by 31 August 2022. The comments received will be considered by the Workshop participants before its publication. The approved Project Plan is also available to download.
