Green nanotechnology: Tiny particles could soon be fueling 'clean tech' industry

Abstract:
The intersection of nanotech and the growing "clean tech" industry is important for the nanotech sector and could become equally significant for clean tech, according to Duncan Stewart, head of Canadian research at Deloitte Consulting.

Stewart says environmental applications are "the engine that is fueling much of the growth in nanotechnology. If clean tech didn't exist, nanotech would still be in the doldrums."

As it is, it's not yet booming. "I'm not trying to get across the idea that this is a trillion-dollar industry that nobody's noticed," Stewart says. Rather, he argues, 2008 will be an inflection point in five years or so, we'll look back and realize that this was the year when nanotechnology really started to have an impact on environmental products.
