Small scale, big rewards

the promise of nanotech projects is high, so are the risks

Nanotech is a tiny wonder with titanic project potential. Across sectors as diverse as energy, biomedicine and transportation, startups and established organizations alike are launching projects to develop new nano materials for use in everything from electric vehicle batteries to life-saving medical implants. Already, clothing and apparel companies make nanotech shirts and pants that resist odor, water and dirt. Nissan's first self-cleaning car prototype uses a nanotech-based protective paint coating that deflects dirt and mud. And 3M recently introduced a flexible nanotech solar panel that rolls out like a sheet of plastic but still has protective properties that rival those of glass.
