Cientifica & Club of Amsterdam present: NanoWater.

The aim of the NanoWater conference is to examine how nanotechnology can help address the issues facing the world's water supplies. According to Unesco, although 70 percent of the world's surface is covered by water, only a fraction of that - 2.5 percent - is freshwater, of which 70 per cent is frozen in ice caps. The remainder is present as soil moisture. This leaves less than one per cent of the world's freshwater resources accessible for human use.

Nanotechnology, while providing only a few radical new technologies for desalination, purification or waste water recovery, does have the ability to tilt the economic balance of many existing water related technologies in favour of large scale use. NanoWater will provide insight on those nanotechnologies and how they can be leveraged into the Water Industry to make them not only economically feasible but desirable.

Speakers at NanoWater are: Kevin M. McGovern, Chairman and CEO of McGovern Capital LLC, Tim Harper, CEO, Cientifica, Executive Director, European NanoBusiness Association, Uri Sagman, Executive Director, Canadian NanoBusiness Alliance, Founder & Director, C Sixty Inc., David E. Reisner, President & CEO, The Nano Group, Inc., President & CEO, Inframat Corp., President & CEO, US Nanocorp, Inc., Fred Tepper, President, Argonide, Dr. Ir.
