Perceptions are more powerful than reality. And there are so many contradictory research so it is nearly impossible to know the whole truth. I am just putting my opinions about the CNTs  and most of them are based on what i hear or read.

You are right that filtration of airborne nanoparticles is a tricky process. A recent article explains ins and outs.

super nano filters?

To protect against the inadvertant inhalation of these nano materials while in the manufacturing process is quite tricky as the filters required need to be of supernano size. Are such filters available?

We have been mining diatomacious earth here in the US for many years. Small particles can be easily inhaled into the lungs, providing a high surface area place for nasty things to happen. From what I've read, the carcinogenicity of CNT's are essentially similar..

Yes, there have been reports that graphene flakes should be handled carefully like carbon nanotubes have to be handled carefully during facbrication--like many other hazardous materials used in chip fabrication. However, once they are fixed in place on a chip, they appear to be safe. Also there has been some reports that claim carbon nanotubes are a biocompanible material that, when used carerfully, can boost neural functions!

I am surprised to read this article about the production of CNT and Graphene in tonns and the increasing usagage of these materials. Alteast CNT is arguably carcinogenic so their use in that quantity is not good for environment.

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
