New Study Identifies Six Key Technologies Available Now
Growing concern over climate change driven by man-made carbon emissions is prompting governments world wide to look at ways of stabilizing or reducing their carbon footprint. The United Kingdom unveiled plans to set a "legally binding" target to cut carbon emissions by 60% by 2050 and the European Union has agreed to cut emissions by 20% between now and 2020. New, more energy efficient technologies will play a large part on achieving these targets, with the emphasis being on making better use of existing resources in the short term while planning for new forms of energy in the longer term.
A new study by London based Cientifica, the first in the Nanotech:Cleantech series, identifies six key ways in which nanotechnology is contributing to the reduction of carbon emissions. The six technologies discussed in this report are all available now or within the next two years, and some have been making stealthy inroads into global industry for as long as a decade.
Cientifica CEO Tim Harper commented, "All of the key applications are related to our enhanced control of materials at the nanoscale, whether lighter stronger materials for transportation, better thermal insulators or more efficient ways of storing energy. The key players read like a Who‚s Who of global industry. "
Cientifica research director Hailing Yu added "combining Cientifica's technology diffusion and impact models with global emissions data allows the quantification and comparison of the impact of nanotechnologies on a country by country or industry basis."
This free report gives an introduction to the key technologies being used, their impact on emissions, their availability and the key players involved.It is available for download at http://www.cientifica.com .
