Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, today announced that the Company will be entering the commercial roof insulation market through the development of a lightweight thermal insulation tile for a major commercial roofing company.
Voxtel, Inc. plans to announce its entry into the business of manufacturing "green" semiconductor and metal-oxide nanocrystals for a wide variety customer applications.
The DC-based research and consulting firm Social Technologies recently released a series of 12 briefs that shed light on the top areas for technology innovation through 2025. The brief on universal water, by futurist Peter von Stackelberg, is the eighth trend in the series.
Commercializing of clean technologies is in stage of moving into global mainstream business. The driving forces are climate change, energy security and increasing energy prices. In the energy sector, these factors, are pushing clean technology markets of biomass, biofuels, solar, wind and fuel cells in the extent that cleantech is seen to be a next engine for economic growth.
Researchers have found that the first step in building new cell walls in plants is the assembly of a scaffold made of structural proteins. This finding could lead to engineered plants that are better materials for biofuels production. Since plant structural proteins can self-assemble, this knowledge may also be useful to the field of nanotechnology.
The electrons in nanoparticles of noble metal oscillate together apace with the frequency of the light. This phenomenon can be exploited to produce better and cheaper solar cells, scientists at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have shown.
Tiny particles of pure silica coated with an active material could be used to remove toxic chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and other hazardous materials from water much more effectively and at lower cost than conventional water purification methods, according to researchers writing in the current issue of the International Journal of Nanotechnology.
A University of Southampton academic will talk about his plans to make solar energy a reality, on BBC Radio 4's Material World tomorrow (Thursday 21st February).
Green Earth Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of environmentally-friendly consumer products, today entered into a strategic relationship with Bio-Tec Fuel and Chemicals, LLC, an Oklahoma-based developer and manufacturer of environmentally-friendly oil products, to manufacture its “G”-Branded automotive performance products including 2-cycle motor oils, all grades of automotive motor oils and marine motor oils.
The Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Technology today released a document describing the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s (NNI) strategy for addressing priority research on the environment, health and safety (EHS) aspects of nanomaterials.
