Dr. Scott Rickert, President and CEO of Nanofilm, is a speaker
at the NanoBusiness Conference/NYC nanotechnology conference, April 20, 2010, in
New York City. His topic is "Nano-izing Today's Surfaces to Solve Energy,
Environmental, And Waste Problems."
Dr. Rickert's 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
"Nanotechnology can contribute to the solution for an array
environmental problems," says Dr. Rickert. "Nanofilms are incredible tools for
harnessing the potential of nanotechnology."
