Community gathering to highlight possibilities for new, clean, environmentally-friendly nanotechnologies

Santa Barbara, CA | Posted on August 4th, 2008

UC Santa Barbara's Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) invite the community to attend a casual public forum called "Nano-Meeter" to discuss the use and implications of "green nanotechnologies" on Thursday, August 28, 2008 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. in the Faulkner Gallery at the Santa Barbara Public Library.

This Nano-Meeter, a regular series to meet and discuss nanotechnologies and their impacts, will provide an overview of green nanotechnology, or "Green Nano": what it is, how it can be used to develop clean technologies, and what kinds of products can be replaced with more environmentally friendly products.

Leading the discussion will be Trish Holden, Professor of Environmental Microbiology and Arturo Keller, Professor of Biogeochemistry from the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, and Bill Freudenburg, Dehlsen Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology, all at UC Santa Barbara.

The public is invited to come, listen and join in an informal discussion session. No science background is required to attend and participate in the Nano-Meeter.

Nanotechnology is the manipulation and synthesis of new materials on a very small scale. With it, scientists hope to create new technologies to make, among other things, better and faster information systems, new energy systems, water treatment membranes, environmental monitoring sensors, and medical devices. Nanotechnology is also, however, an emerging science with little known about its risks and implications. Home to CNS and CNSI, UC Santa Barbara is one of the leading international centers for nanotechnology research.

"Green Nano" involves the creation of nanomaterials and products without harming the environment or human health while aiming to replace existing products with newer products that are environmentally sound throughout their lifecycle.

The Nano-Meeter series is a quarterly community event sponsored by CNS and CNSI.

Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

WHO:
Trish Holden, Professor of Environmental Microbiology, UC Santa Barbara
Arturo Keller, Professor of Biogeochemistry, UC Santa Barbara
Bill Freudenburg, Dehlsen Professor of Environmental Studies, UC Santa Barbara
