2019 International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewable Materials will be held in Chiba, Japan
The Makuhari Messe International Conference Complex is located just outside Tokyo in the Mihama-ku ward of Chiba city. It is easily accessible by Tokyo’s commuter rail system, and is close to Chiba’s black sand beaches. It was the first full-scale convention hall to open in Japan.
Why Attending is Important
Renewable nanomaterials, primarily derived from plants such as trees, have generated much excitement because they are renewable, recyclable, appear to have limited/few safety, health and environmental issues, can be produced in large quantities at costs appealing to materials users, and possess unique properties that enhance the performance of consumer products and applications when used with other materials.
This is the conference to attend if you work, conduct research, or use nanotechnology in any renewable materials.
Co-located with the Nanocellulose Forum (An AIST Consortium)
To accelerate R&D, industrialization and standardization of cellulose nanofibrils and cellulose nanocrystals, the Nanocellulose Forum (NCF) was established June 2014 in the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Industry (AIST).
More than 200 companies have joined NCF, such as manufacturers, suppliers, machinery companies and analytical service companies of nanocellulose. Researchers in universities and public institutes, as well as central and local governments, are also members. NCF conducts a lot of activities for technology transfer, sample transfer, and discovery of new business opportunities.
