The purpose of this paper is to manage the crisis caused by nano-technology in the petrochemical industry (Emam port). The collection of information contained in the petrochemical industry On the application of nanoparticles and the problems created by preparing questionnaires and to provide it on two levels: Managers and technical experts then analyze it done And also to study the biological effects of nano-technology in the petrochemical industry on the environment, economic and social examined, The results showed that more than 90 percent of nanoparticles in Emam port in terms of dealing with the crisis are senior technical staff. Results showed that higher-than-average exposure to nanoparticles staff on mental health and quality of life of employees working in a negative effect. In other words, no matter how critical nanoparticles increase the exposure of employees with mental health and quality of work life of senior technical staff decreases. Based on the results nanoparticles crisis, global warming and the mortality rate of fish cumulative effect this means that if the amount of exposure to nanoparticles is critical to global warming exceeded is added. Frequently caused by the publication of critical nanoparticles butadiene (RA) under the headings inappropriate responses health-environment, frequently economic and social responses in approximately 43/48% of the total variance of responses caused by the release of nanoparticles are critical.
