About this collection

This collection of selected papers are from the Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) 2015 conference, which was held in Portland, Oregon. Guest edited by Wunmi Sadik, Barbara Karn, Greg Lowry and Paul Tratnyek, this collection of research aims to identify where nanomaterials and nanotechnology can improve the sustainability of systems and to foster integration of knowledge between applications and implications within each system.
