Call for posters at the Nanoparticles for the European Industry Conference

London, UK | Posted on July 20th, 2007

Materials in the form of nanoparticles are already in use in a number of different industrial sectors. It is easy to see why. They can endow inexpensive support materials with advanced properties at a fraction of the price, or be used where existing technologies cannot provide a solution. The potential benefits and markets are huge, predicted to account for 31% of the global nanotechnology market in 2015 (apprx. 340 billion USD p.a.). It impacts everything from pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, to electronics, energy, transport, textiles, and the construction industry. However, there are still obstacles to overcome. Scaling up a laboratory process to that required by industry must take account of technical issues such as particle size ranges, agglomeration, reactivity, and dispersion into matrices. In addition, there are concerns regarding the potential effects of engineered free nanoparticles on human health and the environment.

Whether you are a manufacturer or developer of nanoparticles or simply want to know how such new materials will impact your business, will provide you with answers and contacts to leading R&D organizations.

Speakers who will be presenting include:

-Dr Michael Butler, Unilever - 'Nanoparticle Applications in Food, Personal Care and Packaging'
-Dr Derek Graham, ICI - ‘Manufacturing Routes for Nanoparticle Synthesis'
-Dr Stephan Barcikowski, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. - ‘Rapid Nanocomposite Prototyping'
-Dr Milo Shaffer, Imperial College - ‘Carbon nanotubes: Synthesis, Processing and composites'
-Dr Bob Carr, Nanosight - ‘Nanoparticle detection and analysis - tracking nanoparticles in a sample, directly and individually, to give high resolution particle size distributions'
-Professor Robert Lee, BRASS, Cardiff University - ‘Regulating Nanomaterials: 'Mind the Gap''
-Lynn Bergeson, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. - ‘Emerging Global Governance Strategies: A Summary Overview'
