The results of a study which explored some of the ways in which nanotechnologies could cut the use of non-renewable energy sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions are published today.
This study investigated the opportunities and potential obstacles to adoption of a number of environmentally beneficial nanotechnologies. The resulting report explores the application of nanoscience in the areas of insulation, photovoltaics, electricity storage, engine efficiency and the hydrogen economy.
Speaking at the Royal Society Defra's Chief Scientific Adviser, Howard Dalton, said:
"It is hard to conceive of a greater challenge than that of combating climate change. Today's report indicates the key areas where nanoscience may help lessen its effects and contribute to achieving society's ambitions for a sustainable future. However, the report draws particular attention to the need for government, industry and scientific communities to work together in answering some of the fundamental questions regarding the behaviour and toxicity of nanomaterials".
