Report Estimates Nanotechnology Will Save 8000 Tons of Carbon Dioxide in 2007

Research and Markets has announced the addition of "Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources (Portable Electronics Sector)" to their offering.

"Nanotechnologies for Sustainable Energy: Reducing Carbon Emissions through Clean Technologies and Renewable Energy Sources" examines the impact of nanotechnology on the quest for sustainable energy.

Through a detailed analysis of technologies both currently available and under development the report concludes that:

  • The major near-term benefit of nanotechnologies will be in reducing weight in the transportation sector with nanocomposite materials quickly diffusing across the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Over the next seven years, highest growth opportunities will come from the application of nanomaterials to making better use of existing resources rather than generating new forms of renewable energy
  • Highest growth rates will be in the development of renewable energy sources while the materials sector is already crowded
  • Current applications of nanotechnologies will result in a global annual saving of 8 thousand tons of carbon dioxide in 2007, rising to over a million tons by 2014

Please note: This description is for the complete report.

Areas covered:

  • Market forecast for nanotechnology applications in sustainable energy
  • Nanotechnology applications for sustainable energy
  • Reducing CO2 emissions in the portable electronics sector
