nGimat’s Dr. Andrew Hunt Appointed to National Materials Advisory Board
Atlanta, GA | April 28, 2005
nGimat, a leading manufacturer and innovator of engineered nanomaterials, today announced that its CEO, Dr. Andrew Hunt, has been appointed to the National Materials Advisory Board (NMAB). The NMAB is the preeminent source of independent materials assessments for the U.S. and is part of the National Research Council's (NRC) Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences (DEPS).
“The NMAB is excited to have added Dr. Hunt to its membership,” said Gary Fischman, director of the NMAB. “His technical knowledge of coating and nanopowder production as well as his clear understanding of the issues underlying the development and growth of a small materials-based business will be extremely valuable to our group. We welcome him and look forward to his active involvement on the Board.”
“As demand and production of nanoscale materials continues to grow, the NMAB plays an increasingly critical role in providing independent analysis,” said Dr. Hunt. “It’s an honor to serve on the NMAB along with esteemed colleagues from business, education and government sectors.”
The NMAB studies deal with the entire life cycle of materials, from mining and synthesis to manufacturing, service performance and recycling/disposal. They achieve a balanced view by having access to the expertise of all sectors of society concerned with materials. Board assessments of new materials and processing methods focus attention on policy issues with significant technology content and its activities create broader awareness and advocacy for materials issues. The National Research Council is part of the National Academies, which also comprise the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine. They are private, nonprofit institutions that provide science, technology and health policy advice under a congressional charter.
