Nanoparticles have become an intrinsic component in many materials. They can be found in objects as diverse as handphone coverings and construction material.

Once discarded, these objects leach nanoparticles into the environment and their fate is, as yet, unknown.

We propose to use quantum dots as tracers and models of nanparticles, to be used to track and understand their movement in different kinds of waste.
