Nano4Design Workshop "Nano-enabled Sustainable Design"

29th Nov 2012

Sustainability is now a key driver in product design. Sustainability includes: reducing environmentally harmful emissions during processing, avoiding the use of toxic and scarce resources, using  sustainable materials, designing-in recyclability and re-use, and environmental remediation such as carbon capture.

Sponsored by and hosted at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, this workshop is a must-attend for all product designers looking for new sustainable technologies – a unique opportunity to hear new ideas, network with peers and meet technology providers.

This workshop is for designers, materials scientists, and engineers developing or looking for  sustainable solutions in product design. Application markets are diverse, from architecture to cars, aircraft to fashion, and electronic devices to alternative technology.

Speakers include:
• Harnessing Nanotechnology to Combat Climate Change for the Built Environment - Carole Collet, Textile Futures Research Centre, Central St Martins
• Inkjet Printing for Novel Solar Control - Brian Hughes, Solaveil
• Plastic Electronics for Tagging, Sensing and Energy - Richard Kirk, Polyphotonics
• Nanocellulose – A Sustainable Alternative - Prof Mizi Fan, Brunel University
• Novel Materials for Thermal Control - Zafer Ure, PCM Products
• Surface Regeneration for Buildings - Alessia Giardino, Textile & Surface Designer
• TSB Funding Call “New Designs for a Circular Economy” - John Whittall, Technology Strategy Board

A discounted rate of £50 +VAT will be charged to members of the NanoKTN*, CSM academics & members of our media partners. The standard cost is £80 + VAT.
