"Studded tires take more lives than they save"

Anna Furberg, PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology has recently defended her licentiate thesis "Environmental, Resource and Health Impacts of Hard Materials". She investigates tungsten in studded tires from a life cycle perspective. Taking into account that tungsten is a conflict mineral shows that studded tires take more lives than they save.

MEN-researcher Tommy Cedervall in Swedish radio

Vetenskapsradion, Sveriges Radio published a news piece today about research on nanomaterials.

Despite millions spent on research there is no new legislation on nanoparticles or nanomaterials in the EU. The European Union has spent 600 million SEK during the latest years on this research.

– It would be much more efficient to spend that money on basic knowledge about nanoparticles and what harm they can cause, says Tommy Cedervall, biochemist at Lunds university and member of Mistra Environmental Nanosafety, to Sveriges Radio.

Our researchers in Norwegian television about nanoplastics

Tommy Cedervall and Mikael Ekvall were recently interviewed by Line Elvsåshagen in Norwegian TV (NRK Planet Plast).

You can see the piece here (in Swedish):


The researchers join the program after 34 minutes, and speak about what happens to fishes that eat nanoparticles (through the particles taken up by algea, which is then eaten by zooplankton).
