Nanotechnology solutions for a sustainable future
How can the study of atoms, too small for the naked eye to see, bring about changing the earth’s climate? Researchers from around the world will present their work to show how nanotechnology can play a role in the development of future energy supplies.
Right now, the major challenge being faced by scientists and researchers is how to mature nanoscience into nanotechnology to pave the way to new, innovative industries that produce commercial products that help the environment.
Some of the world’s leading researchers will share their views on this theme to show what role nanotechnology can play in the development of future energy supplies. Specific focus areas will encompass a wide spectrum of nanotechnology solutions from hydrogen technology, solar energy, wind energy to catalysis and biofuels.
Theme coordinator Dr. Flemming Besenbacher, of the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre, Faculty of Science, will oversee an impressive roster of experts. Of the most prominent speakers at the conference will be Sir David King from the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at Oxford University. King, also a key-not speaker at the conference, will present his paper Nanotechnology and catalysis for biofuels and exhaust clean-up.
