FG approves Nanotechnology plan

Abstract:
The Federal Government has approved the deployment of Nanotechnology under the fourth national development plan, an official has said.

Olusegun Adewoye, Director General, National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja. According to him, the technology would be deployed in the energy, health and water sectors.

"Nanotechnology provides scientists and engineers the opportunity of taking control of atoms and molecules individually, manipulating them and putting them to use with an extraordinary degree of precision.

"It refers to the projected ability to construct items from the bottom up, using techniques and tools being developed today to make complete, high performance products,'' he explained.
