Nano4EARTH Will Hold Roundtable Discussion on Catalysts on January 24, 2024

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

Nano4EARTH will hold a roundtable discussion on January 24, 2024, on nanotechnology-enabled catalysts that could help achieve climate goals. The discussion aims to identify fundamental knowledge gaps, needs, and opportunities to advance current climate mitigation goals through the use of nanocatalysts in industrial processes. According to the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), by convening stakeholders from different sectors, backgrounds, and expertise, the goal of the roundtable “is to identify applicable lessons across industries, discuss system-specific needs, scalability and commercialization challenges, and potential paths forward.” The discussion will focus on nearer-term opportunities for impact that could pave the way toward larger-scale implementation. NNI notes that these opportunities could have a near-term impact on reaching net-zero carbon emission, sustainable development, and overall climate targets. In-person and virtual registration is open.
