30 Mar Green Nanotechnology: The Milestone to Genetic Era (CTP2)
We had an opportunity to interview Leander Tapfer (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy, and Sustainable Economic Development, Italy) to get his insight on Green Nanotechnology. What we learned from Mr. Tapfer is absolutely priceless; some are alarming, most are considerable, and overall will require global awareness to tackle such future bottlenecks.
The environmental protection institutions have imposed a ban on various carbon and CFC-based products and techniques. However, there is still a huge need to formulate better, sustainable and environment-friendly techniques in the areas of agriculture, construction, farming and industrial manufacturing. The major challenges for the 21st-century world include the need for sustainable and renewable energy resources, water, food, global warming, poverty, terrorism, epidemics, education and increasing population – and above all, a ‘green’ alternate for technology.
“The advancing technology is creating an imbalance in the natural poise of the global environment. As a major consequence, the life on earth in under a crucial threat of extinction. The downsides of modern technology are incessantly making it ‘convenient to live, but hard to survive’.” – Leander Tapfer, Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development
What is Green Nanotechnology?
Green Nanotechnology is the sustainable aspect of nanotechnology that makes use of compounds possessing their characteristic attributes on the nanoscale. Although the size is extremely small, a nanometer of a material actually contains up to thousands of atoms, all possessing the key characteristic of the parent element.
Nanotechnology is used to enhance the physical and chemical strengths of materials such as elasticity, fluid permeability, and electromagnetic property to name a few. A modification in properties makes it convenient to optimize the properties of the material, so that despite the small size and quantity, they are able to make a large-scale impact, in terms of energy and consumption.
The modification at the nanoscale can be understood in the realm of natural selection and evolution of life, that has been happening, gradually, but consistently, ever since the emergence of life on earth. Altering and enhancing the material strengths and properties, while paying due consideration to the preservation of biosphere and ecology, will efficiently minimize our needs and reliance on non-renewable energy supply.
The technology will also enable us to preserve our non-renewable resources, by practicing reusing and recycling techniques. Considering the needs of the time, in terms of ecological degradation, nanotechnology will trigger a green and sustainable industrial revolution, and will completely transform our manufacturing processes and designs, to help foster a safe, healthy, and sustainable world.
Facts About Private Equity and its Scope in the Realm of Green Nanotechnology.
The private equity sector can play a significant role in the conservation of natural equilibrium of the biosphere and contribute a fair share in the green revolution of nanotechnology.
Private equity firms operate on stringent corporate paradigms and are always on a lookout for groundbreaking ideas that might help reinvent the future. This makes them thrive, with a competitive and progressive approach towards building symbiotic partnerships and collaborations, towards a shared mission or goal.
“As we look at the North American and Western European markets for new opportunities, we also examine global industry cycles and look for pockets of dislocation or stagnation.” – Andrew Nikou, CEO, OpenGate Capital
In the realm of green nanotechnology, the private equity sector can efficiently bind the industrial stakeholders with nanotechnology experts and scientists. This collaborative approach will provide the basis for mutual pursuit, to formulate and suggest measures to reduce the consumption of energy and non-renewable resources, and incorporating nanotechnology to increase production and yield. This will foster an ultimate win-win situation for the industrial sector as well as the environmental protection organizations.
