It's easy being nano and green

More shameless bragging about our accomplishments over at my paying job. Those who don't read Small Times might have been surprised by the environmental work going on at the University of Oregon: UO patent opens way for green nano. Those who do, already know: Nanotech's green side: Cutting waste and risk, taming environmental fears.

You might read speculative environmental horror stories elsewhere, but when it comes to real environmental work going on, we've got it covered.

Update: Speaking of the environment, nanotech anti-erosion agent SoilSET has been named as a finalist for the 2004 Utah Innovation Award, which no doubt will drive the ETC Group bonkers. More background here.
