South Africa has launched several national nanotechnology initiatives to strengthen and position the country’s capabilities in this field. Industrial areas that benefit from nanotechnology are mining and minerals, chemical and bio-processing, and advanced materials and manufacturing.
However, the development of nanotechnology in South Africa is hampered by many barriers such as regulation, standards, health & safety issues, and public perception. Standardisation is an integral part of implementing the national development plan.
In addition to publishing standards on nanotechnology, the country needs to continue with efforts to publicise and cultivate information on nanotechnology to ensure the sustainable development of the sector. 236049@aN2GdSJ-xnxkCgTYBArkrSpdQiJmgLFEMNPdKqh_pz0.@” target=”_blank”>Webinar contents here.
