Industry backbone takes shape
Standards will play a vital role in the commercial success of nanotechnology and Peter Hatto, chairman of ISO’s technical committee on nanotechnologies (TC 229) was on hand at EuroNanoForum 2007 to give an overview of activity in the area.
China, a big producer of nano nickel, ZnO and titania, was one of the first countries to come up with domestic standards on nanotechnology back in 2004. Today, the membership of TC 229 spans 39 countries and work in the field appears to be gathering pace.
