Nanotechnologies mitigate Climate Change

The Nanowerk Spotlight investigates the potential of Nanotechnologies to mitigate global warming. The article focuses on the first two elements of the main strategies to combat global warming:

  1. Reducing energy consumption by employing more efficient technologies that minimize use of fossil fuels 
  2. Adopting technologies that utilize renewable energy and energy storage technologies 
  3. Addressing carbon management issues that involve separation, capture, sequestration and conversion to useful products 

Explanations on nanotechnologies’ capacity to mitigate global warming are provided under the following headings:

  • Reduced Energy Consumption and Improving Efficiency
  • Renewable Energy Generation
  • Recent Developmental Activities and Breakthroughs in Nanotech Solar Cells
  • Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Economy
  • Energy Storage
  • Major Producers/Developers of Nano-based Batteries and Their Product Range
  • Key Developments and Current Activities in Nanotech-enabled Batteries
  • Major Achievements in Nano Engineered Supercapacitors
