Not enough nanotechnology in construction

Abstract:
NanoByg - a survey of nanoinnovation in Danish construction - has released a report that concludes that the use of nanotechnology in the construction sector can be improved.

The construction sector was among the first to be identified as a promising application area for nanotechnology back in the beginning of the 1990s. But today we see that the construction industry is falling behind other sectors in applying nanotechnology.

This report looks into the perspective and potentials of nanotechnology in construction and noticeable discusses the possibility for a Danish initiative - called NanoByg - in this area.
