Sustainable Nanomaterials Workshop
June 26, 2012
Title: Sustainable Nanomaterials Workshop
Date: Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Location: The Fairfax at Embassy Row, 2100 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington D.C. 20008
Time: 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM EDT
The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) at the Energy Department will be hosting a workshop Tuesday June 26th, 2012 on Sustainable Nanomaterials in the Washington D.C. area. Sustainable nanomaterial production from forest products is an area of emerging interest given the potential for effective and efficient utilization of renewable and sustainable resources as substitutes for petroleum-derived materials. The forest products industry looks to nanotechnology as a means to tap the enormous undeveloped potential of trees as photochemical "factories" that produce abundant sources of raw materials. AMO is particularly interested in understanding the manufacturing challenges and needs to improve energy efficiency and reduce cost of manufacturing sustainable nanomaterials, as well as the potential applications of sustainable nanomaterials to energy technologies.
Through the workshop, AMO seeks to gather stakeholder input from industry and academia on the current state of the art, understand the development opportunities and manufacturing challenges, as well as gather feedback on the potential role of AMO to support these emerging technologies. The workshop will include overview presentations by government personnel, presentations by industry and academic experts, as well as breakout session to gather input from session participants. Registration is limited.
