Abstract:
Egypt nanoconstruction conference aims at partnering low-tech industry with high-tech science

Nano Cement, Steel & Construction Industries Conference

Cairo, Egypt | Posted on March 13th, 2009

The first international conference of the Middle East uniting nanotechnology and the construction industry under one roof will be housed in Cairo on May 16-17, 2009. Prospectors from the field of nanotechnology and all areas of construction are invited to participate in establishing and maintaining a dialogue to discover how both entities may benefit from each other immediately and long-term.

The conference will cover topics such as trends and developments connecting nanotechnology and construction, implications for the environment, the use of nanomaterials in building, particularly in cement, steel, glass and paint, and establishing the working foundations for creating innovative "smart" cities of the future.

A report published by the Nanoforum a little over two years ago, emphasized that, "if construction continues to ignore nanotechnology it will be the one left paying a fortune for a last minute ticket it could have had for a song if it had acted earlier." Since the publication of this report, numerous nano-solutions have been developed for construction that are hard to ignore. Nanotechnology has already shown promise in providing strength, lightness, durability, self-sterilization, internal self-repair, built-in depollution, and fire protection. Numerous cost-reducing products are currently available on the market providing important added-value such as quality, longevity, and the prospect of truly Green housing.

This event is organized by SabryCorp Ltd. for Science and Development. Information presented during the conference will both inform and guide the construction industry, investors and international associations supporting research and development along the same path as nanotechnology to clarify shared expectations and goals. By forging these much-needed ties, the construction industry will maintain pace with other sectors to effectively apply the benefits of nanotechnology. Says Allana Haist, vice-president and co-founder of SabryCorp, "The event will foster the fruitful collaborations needed to boost nanotech R&D for construction worldwide and provide cost-saving, safe and environmentally friendly solutions at a time when industry is facing a tremendously difficult economic downturn."

Widespread integration of nanotechnology in construction may require a few years to flourish, but motivated organizers not only seek economic success for both nano and construction sectors. What distinguishes this conference from prior nanoconstruction forums in Europe and Asia is the desire to guide a wholesome alliance between both parties by emphasizing initiatives targeting global prosperity.
