Home > Press > Do you Kyoto? World-leading companies share their approaches to environmentally friendly business at NAUM’19

Abstract:
Being climate-smart is not an added cost anymore – participants at the Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit 2019 will share their experience of the ways in which graphene nanotubes are increasing their competitiveness and expanding their business, while reducing global energy consumption. This year, the event will take place in Kyoto, where more than 20 years ago the Kyoto Protocol was adopted – the place where “Kyoto” is used as a verb, meaning “to act in an environmentally friendly way”.

Do you Kyoto? World-leading companies share their approaches to environmentally friendly business at NAUM’19

Kyoto, Japan | Posted on October 14th, 2019

NAUM’19 takes place on November 5–6 at the Kyoto International Conference Center, where the Kyoto Protocol was adopted in 1997. The Summit focuses on nanoaugmented materials and energy solutions, both of which are ideologically connected with this venue: today graphene nanotube-based materials and products are among the most effective responses to global warming. But how exactly do these nanotubes help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions?



Annual emissions of greenhouse gases produced by humankind amount to 28 billion tonnes, with 30% coming from the production, transportation and use of base materials, most of which are non-renewable. The companies at the forefront of innovation are constantly searching for ways to replace or reduce the use of these materials. Graphene nanotubes offer a more energy efficient alternative and provide the solution for developing next-generation materials and products that are stronger, lighter and more durable. These materials dramatically decrease СО2 emissions throughout the whole life cycle of a product: during its manufacturing, transportation, use and recycling.



This is well illustrated in the automotive industry, where lightweight vehicle bodies and increased battery performance thanks to nanoaugmented materials improve energy efficiency and reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere. As an example, graphene nanotubes are now, for the first time ever, enabling the mass use of silicon anodes in lithium-ion batteries, thus finally paving the way for humanity's switch to electric vehicles. The automotive industry will be a key topic at NAUM’19, as it is undergoing the most noticeable revolution process now and will be driving the development of other industries.



At NAUM’19, companies from all over the world will present their products at the exhibition: the first steps to the cars of the future, scooters, bicycles, snowboards, baseball bats, smartphone screens and even column speakers – all enhanced with graphene nanotubes. This exhibition of nanoaugmented products will make you realize how often you will soon meet sustainable products containing graphene nanotubes in your daily life.



Consumer goods or next-gen aerospace, advanced electronics or time-honored construction, car parts and tires, chemicals, oil & gas, batteries – a rapidly growing number of industries are now integrating climate-smart principles into their future business models. At NAUM’19, Airbus Defense and Space, Trelleborg Applied Technologies, CRH, BASF, DAIKIN Industries, BYK Additives, BAK Power Battery, Lufthansa Technik Intercoat, Rice University and others will take one more step towards our sustainable future.
