PRESS RELEASE - PERSBERICHT

Bringing Nanotechnology solutions to solving the world's water issues

The Club of Amsterdam & Cientifica present NanoWater on September 27, 2004 in the RAI Conference Center in Amsterdam.

NanoWater is a very simple idea that grew out of a meeting with Former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres at the World NanoEconomic Congress in Washington DC last year.

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.

Tim Harper, Director, European NanoBusiness Association: "... the question becomes, can we use nanotechnology to make water remediation more efficient, and ultimately more economically viable? The preliminary results indicate that we can."

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. Jeroen Boom, Project Design and Build Manager for Membrane Filtration, Rossmark Waterbehandeling B.V., Dr. Eric Mayes, CEO, NanoMagnetics Ltd., Dr. Philippe Rychen, Head of Environmental Systems, Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique (CSEM SA) and Diederik Jaspers, Senior Consultant, Altran Technologies Netherlands BV.
