nano-tech for water, energy

TEL AVIV — Israel and Singapore have launched a program to use nanotechnology to enhance energy efficiency.


The two countries, regarded as close military allies, have begun a five-year program to develop nanomaterial to increase the efficiency of energy and water management.

The research, joined by two Israeli professors, would take place in a new state-financed facility in Singapore, Middle East Newsline reported.

Organizers said this marked the first such nano-project and focus on the use of carbon, gold and silver to enhance energy harvesting and conservation. They identified the participating universities as Israel's Hebrew University, Ben-Gurion University and Singapore's Nanyang Technological University.

In the second stage, Israel and Singapore would patent and market energy and water nanotechnology. Israel has already been researching nanotechnology for military and dual-use applications.
