Nanotechnology: a food production revolution in waiting
The study, commissioned by the UK government and carried out be the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering, considered current and future developments in nanotechnology. It identified a range of potential benefits to be gained from nanoscience and nanotechnologies including new materials, more powerful computers and revolutionary medical techniques.
This assertion is backed up by another recent study from Helmut Kaiser Consultancy, which looked into nanotechnology in the food industry. The report estimates that the nanofood market will surge from $2.6 billion today to 20.4 billion in 2010.
