More Proposals for Nanotechnology in Addressing Oil Spills
Last May when the news cycle was providing non-stop coverage of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, I wondered how long it would take for someone to ask how nanotechnology could be applied to solve the problem.
The issue that I came to realize was not that there weren't any interesting proposals for using nanotechnology to address oil spills, but that there weren't any real commercial solutions that could be applied in that instance. The one commercial product that was available, a nanoparticle-based dispersant, seemed to generate more controversy than offer a remedy.
