Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Nano-TV video # 4- Nano Non-Stick Paint For Efficient Shipping

This video describes how biofouling on ship hulls is responsible for an up to 40% higher fuel consumption of vessels. Now a new non-toxic paint has been developed. The secret is a nano structure, caused by amphiphilic molecules. This is one of fourteen different videos produced by NANO-TV and covering different applications of nanotechnology, ranging from medicine, to energy, environment and ICT.


The NANO-TV project aim was the development of public awareness on European nano-research in all European countries through television media (in the form of video news releases) and the internet.
