Home > Press > Nanomaterials Commercial Focus Event: Series of Exchange Seminars to commence with Global Cement Industry

Abstract:
INSCX™ exchange (The Integrated Nano-Science & Commodity Exchange) announces the scheduling of its "Delivering the Industrial Commons: INSCX™ exchange FOCUS: Nanotechnology & Industry" series of seminars commencing with a 2-day seminar in January, 2013 to address the commercial relevance of nanotechnology in regard to the Global Cement industry. The January seminar constitutes the first in a series of 5 gatherings scheduled monthly focusing on industry resource and commodity sectors where nanotechnology holds immediate commercial relevance and prospect for viable uptake. The January 2013 event commences the series to focus on providing practical commercial nano-enabled solutions to the global cement producer/converter base. The seminar schedule and registration circular will be made available from the Exchange Press office, December 27th onwards. The event titled "Delivering the Industrial Commons: Nanotechnology & the Cement Industry" commences the afternoon of Friday, 18th to Saturday 19th January 2013 at facilities in Macclesfield, Cheshire, on the outskirts of Manchester, UK.

Nanomaterials Commercial Focus Event: Series of Exchange Seminars to commence with Global Cement Industry

Manchester, UK | Posted on December 19th, 2012

The initial January seminar is to be followed by additional Exchange "Focus" seminars scheduled monthly onwards with the February event addressing the commercial prospects and application of nanoscience in a number of resource areas:

Seminar INDUSTRY FOCUS Schedule:

January: Cement/Construction

February: Lubricants/Polymers

March: Multi-Modular Logistics

April: Agriculture/Energy

May: Nanomedicine

Co-ordinating the series of seminar FOCUS events will be senior management from INSCX™ exchange, invited nanomaterial producers, and representatives of the collective hub collaborating with the Exchange to deliver accountability in materials quality, insurance and regulatory/EHS compliance across upstream/downstream interest in nanomaterials. Technical appraisal strategy and implementation will be will be chaired by Jeremy Ramsden, former Chair of Nanotechnology sitting at Cranfield University, appointed Chief Technical Officer, INSCX™.

Commenting on the launch of the series, Rebecca Painter, Events Co-ordinator, INSCX™ stated:

"These events are designed firstly to present existing industry with working solutions in mapping a sustainable commercial approach to the embedding of nanoscience across key resource sectors beginning in January with focus on the Global Cement industry. Secondly we wish to enable direct interactions between nanomaterial producer/process members and decision makers in relevant industry where there is demand potential for nanomaterials while offering both a strategy to implement greater dependence on these materials. The objective is to combine to inform both elements of the fact an industrial commons of benefit to either is available and that nanoscience can, is and will continue to move beyond the preserve of the novel to provide existing industry with viable and sustainable prospect in a manner befitting commercial and societal prudence."

INSCX™ exchange CEO, Charles McGovern, underscoring the commercial relevance to industry both traditional and emerging, commented:

"It is vital that Nanomaterial producers appreciate the commercial relevance to themselves in using the Exchange as a means to accelarate output beyond R&D/Semi-industrial stage to generate demand and respond to deliver crital mass in supply while delivering the essential commercial accountabilities of quality, trade certainty, economies of scale and compliance. Equally, these seminars are presented to existing industry sectors, the converters/downstream users in other words, to use the Exchange as a means to gear NM producers individually and collectively to be in a position to support and deliver high-volume uptake in a sustainable context bereft of an endless appeal to futurism and price differentials that have been impossible to quantify or trend. Finally, without providing security to capital employed to finance upscale, a long-standing function of the Exchange process since the 1800s, our industry is asking those with capital seeking return to gamble on mere hype."

Supply-Chain Management:

The supply chain in any materials industry begins and ends with the matter of price, supply certainty and purpose of use demonstrating a clear cost benefit throughout the sequence of the supply-chain to end product. It remains the view of INSCX™ exchange that capital inadequacy, lack of effective supply-chain management, limited price transparency/high-volatity, lack of trade certainty, regulatory uncertainty and protracted physical settlement in materials allocation/procurement are obstacles each industry must overcome to progress. The more fluid and essential commodities all share a common trait; that being these industries are underpinned by reliance on long-established physical and financial systems of trade. While current obstacles inhibiting greater uptake in nanomaterials are similar, these are fundamental reasons why commodity exchange systems first came to exist : to overcome and streamline the trade cycle from s atanding start.

The mechanic of the open and transparent marketplace helped crystalise the First Industrial Revolution and lest we all forget: Without these systems in Chicago, New York and the cities of London, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds beforehand, inertia from innovation to commercial sustainability would have proven even more protracted in the 19th Century as was the case in the 18th before the exchange system effectively organised. It was through these systems that capital flocked to support producer upscale confident of return, how producers expanded with certainty of sale, where the essentials of commercial insurance, loading, storage, logistics, quality inspection and trade recording galvanised to move industry forward.

As we come to assess nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N) and the supply of nanomaterials underpinning the entire science, the very same system is now manifest via INSCX™ exchange benefiting producer members and existing industry collaborating with the exchange alike. The Exchange is purposely active in listing both traditional (Polymers, Base Oils, Cement, Minerals) and advanced materials sectors including NMs for trade, aiding price transparency, enabling capital to support upscale, delivering trade certainty, embracing and implementing commercial good practices while opening doors for demand exploitation. This is being achieved in a manner supportive of producer growth, supportive of cost-benefit to converter.

This system will greatly accelarate deliverance of the second phase of Industrial Revolution through enabling a practical, real-world methodology to secure the sustainable uptake of this radical suite of advanced raw and functional materials.

Concluding, Jeremy Ramsden, Chief Technical Officer, INSCX™ suggested:

"A willing attendence at these seminars we present as a "must-do" for any party remotely concerned with seeking to exploit nanoscience for commercial and societal benefit. What matters we suggest is that business be enabled to make use of nanoscience beyond mere appeal to potential, tokenism or presentation of research finding as commercial fact, that known potential can be delivered real-world beyond the novel compliant, enabling NM producers to grow and thrive organically. What mattes also we conclude is that procurement and allocation of underlying nanomaterials required by industry be secured using the very same system that currently underpins our global resource economy in oils, agriculture, energy and metals as is to optimum effect; that being the organised exchange".

Theme:

The summary theme of each industry Focus seminar will address the following issues relevant to the Industry in question deemed relevant in the context of delivering viable and sustainable reasons for industry to make greater use of nanomaterials:

What materials, what products, why Nano?
Consequence of Inertia - Beyond Futurism
Compliance: Certainty, Insurance, Quality, Regulation
Structured procurement/Cost benefit
NM Producer Upscale: Process/Financing/Capital preservation
Seamless Embedding/Sustainable Dependence
