5.1.7 Automotive & Aeronautic EHS Analysis
The automotive and aeronautic industries are key sectors in Europe. The European automotive industry produces 17,1 million passenger cars yearly, 32% of the vehicle manufacturing worldwide1, and the European Aerospace and defence industry reported a turnover of €132.2 billion in 2007.
The automotive and aeronautics technical sector report2 provides an overview on processing technologies of nanostructured metals, polymer nanocomposites and tribological coatings for automotive and aeronautics applications.
The Environment, Health & Safety analysis of the automotive and aeronautics technology sector considers the nanomaterials outlined therein within the context of their application, and provides commentary on the hazard and exposure potential for the material in question.
The present report covers three major sub-sectors, classified within the automotive and aeronautics technology sector report according to application and societal needs as follows:
• Bulk nanostructured metals
• Polymer nanocomposites
• Tribiological nano-coatings
