Dr. Rickert's topic is “Nano-izing Today's Surfaces to Solve Energy,
Environmental, And Waste Problems.” His presentation will focus on how
nanofilms can create advanced performance characteristics at the surface of
a substrate, maximizing the benefit from nanomaterials, keeping the costs of
such benefits affordable, and integrating the technology more easily and cost-efficiently
into current production systems. In particular, Dr. Rickert will address how
nanofilm-based approaches are enabling breakthrough applications that reduce
solid waste, improve the efficiency of alternative energy generation, curtail
energy and water use, and reduce and replace environmental contaminants.
“Nanofilms are incredible tools for harnessing the potential of nanotechnology,”
says Dr. Rickert. “This conference brings together the kind of global
leaders that can unleash that potential.”
