NANOTECHNOLOGY is not the key to clean alternative energy, according to an international report released today by environmental group Friends of the Earth.
"Despite claims that nanotechnolgy can limit climate change and promote energy efficiency ... the use of nanotechnolgy actually comes at a large environment cost," said Georgia Miller, FOE Australia nanotechnology spokesperson and co-author of the report, "Nanotechnology, climate and energy: over-heated promises and hot air?"
The technology involves the manipulation of matter at the molecular scale. Australia's National Nanotechnology Strategy states that, along with a range of novel products, it promises "cleaner and more efficient energy generation".
