First Clean Energy Conference focused on key role of Nanocatalysts for environment and industry.

Current global catalyst markets are in excess of $20 billion and nanocatalysts will reduce costs and increase efficiency in the generation, storage, and usage of energy.

The nanoSIG presents the first Clean Energy Generation, Storage, & Usage Conference focused on the key role of Nanocatalysts for the environment and industry. The advisory board includes:

Dr. Yigal Blum, SRI International

Dr. Kyeongjae (KJ) Cho, Stanford University

Dr. Enrique Iglesia, Professor, UC Berkeley, Faculty Scientist, LBNL. Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Catalysis; Editorial Boards of Energy & Fuels, Catalysis Today, Industrial Catalysis News, & Catalysis Surveys; & Director, Berkeley Catalysis Center

Dr. Nobi Kambe, Vice-President & Founder, Nanogram, Inc.

Dr. Jonathan Woo, CTO, Nanostellar, Inc.

Conference Goals:

According to Bo Varga, Executive Director, nanoSIG: "Our goal is to enable interested parties to network regarding opportunities to commercialize nanocatalysis research to solve environmental problems and create jobs and wealth. The morning session is focused on short term research futures and the afternoon session is focused on current commercial projects. And investors in this space will provide insight on how to close funding for clean energy nanotechnology projects."
