Tipping The (Nano) Scale: Is Nano Technology Supporting or Suppressing the Clean Energy Movement?
Join us for discussion and dessert as we explore some heated questions around nanotechnology and nanomaterials. What’s the deal with lithium-ion batteries and are they safe? Where do nanomaterials come from and are they sustainable? Evidence shows that engineered particles could pose a giant risk to the environment and human life. True or False?
