Today at ACAMP's latest seminar, Alberta's conventional energy industry learned how nanotechnology, micro-systems and micro-fluidics can play a powerful role in enhancing operational performance, reducing costs and promoting efficient extraction of oil and gas resources, while opening new markets for Alberta companies worldwide.

"Micro and Nano technologies for conventional energy applications are extremely important in Alberta," said Ken Brizel, CEO of ACAMP, "enhancing operational performance allowing for efficient extraction of oil and gas resources. Innovative new products are being developed and used locally enabling Alberta companies to compete worldwide."

In addition to Conventional Energy technology solutions, the seminar features discussions on securing venture capital and public sources of funding for moving ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace, and the various ways to secure investment for entrepreneurs and start-up companies.
