Taiwan Nano

taiwannano.pngThis weeks carbon footprint was spread from London to Hong Kong and Taiwan for the Taiwan Nano 2007 conference (seen here being opened by president Chen Shui-bian) where we spent most of the day discussing the relationship between cleantech and nanotech.

Taiwan takes its nanotech very seriously, perhaps more so than any of the other “tiger” economies, and has had an impressive and sustained program for five years. Unfortunately five years is still a relatively short space of time when it comes to technology, and despite an impressive number of companies exhibiting nanotech enabled lingerie, and a good list of patents, it may be TaiwanNano 2009 before we see some real benefits.
