Environmentally Beneficial Nanotechnologies

Defra has also commissioned research into the the policy implications of nanotechnologies that will benefit the environment. The report of the study Environmentally beneficial nanotechnologies: barriers and opportunities investigates the opportunities and potential obstacles to adoption of a number applications of nanotechnology which could be used to cut use of non-renewable energy sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This report explores the application of nanoscience in the areas of insulation, photovoltaics, electricity storage, engine efficiency and the hydrogen economy.
