Rapid growth in nanotechnology promise novel benefits through the exploitation of their unique industrial applications. However, as increasing of production amount of nanomaterials, their unintentional exposure to the environment has been caused. Therefore, there is a need for effective management of nanowaste to the sustainable nanotechnology. One possible endpoint at the environmental exposure scenario for nanowaste treatment is incineration. Although a few study on the incineration of nanomaterials was reported, pioneering researchers found that although it is possible to incinerate nanowaste without releasing nanoparticles into the atmosphere, the residues (bottom ash or slag) with nanomaterials eventually end up in landfills. Though there are still many questions to understand the fate of nanomaterials in incinerator, firstly we have to study whether nanowaste treatment via incineration is safe to human and environment.
