MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A center hosted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is getting $20 million in National Science Foundation funding as it studies the effects of nanotechnology on the environment.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1LQHtjQ ) reports the five-year funding for the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology was announced Monday. Nanotechnology deals with the manipulation of materials at a tiny scale.

University of Wisconsin scientist says the center’s mission is for nanoparticles in products to be designed to have no impact on the environment.
