If this week’s reports seem to have a greenish tinge, it’s the combination of zeitgeist and the fact that we are, if you will forgive the pun, up to our necks in it.
As the sun sinks over the Baltic Sea, water is very much on our minds. In fact, we have been working on water issues for several years, along with out partners at Jaako Poyry, and nanotech is finally being given a chamce to tip the balance.
NanoWater 2004 will be co-located with the Aquatech Amsterdam 2004 international trade event of water technology and water management. NanoWater will be held on September 27, 2004 at Europa Complex of the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Conference Centre.
NanoWater will address one of the world’s most pressing problems: the need for clean, safe, affordable water and how nanotechnology can help solve some of these problems. It’s a problem that affects us all, rich or poor, across the world. From basic water shortages in the southwestern United States to contaminated groundwater in India, from energy hungry desalination plants in Israel to countering bioterrorism, nanotechnology can play a part.
