Abstract
An existing Austrian database for nanoproducts will be updated. Based on this database six consumer products will be chosen to develop material flow oriented disposal and release scenarios. These scenarios aim exemplarily to review the environmental fate of nanoproducts at their end-of-life and to evaluate the waste legislation as well as the surveillance mechanisms in waste management.
