    Very glad to note that a Seminar has been organised for Oct 24th. We hope and pray that this long overdue and heartbreaking issue is resolved once and for all.

    Again, the Reverse Osmosis water filtration method can get rid of heavy metals in water. Entire small cities water needs in USA are served through this method. May be expensive to instal, but in the long run it is more than possible to be cost effective.

    This is a HUGE step forward for Sri Lanka, for nanotechnology will be the wave of the next 50 years creating processes and products hitherto deemed impossible!

    Nanotechnology manipulates matter on an atomic and molecular scale to produce materials and devices with properties and functional capabilities that are currently unavailable in medicine, electronics, biomaterials and energy production. While economic benefits of nanotechnology are great, nanotechnology products can pose health and environmental issues that Sri Lanka must be equipped to evaluate and protect itself against.

    Bravo … Sri Lanka!

    Sri Lanka’s first nanotechnology research center and nanoscience park to be opened on 21st

    ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Oct 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka ‘s first Nanotechnology research center and Nanoscience park will be declared open by President Mahinda Rajapaksa on October 21.

    Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) together with the Ministry of Technology and Research laid the foundation in June 2012 for the commencement of construction of the park which is named as Nanotechnology Centre of Excellence (NCE).

    Sri Lanka’s first nanotechnology park is set up in a 50 acre land in Pitipana, Homagama in Colombo district. The park is established with the government and private sector participation.

    The Nanotechnology Park aims to create opportunities for all businesses to develop new products through a collaborative innovation process, taking them from research through development toward commercialization.

    The foundation for this framework is the Nanotechnology Centre of Excellence (NCE), which marks the first phase of the development of the Park.

    The Ministry of Technology and Research of Sri Lanka made initiatives to launch the nanoscience project together with industrial sector in early 2008.

    The Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (Pvt) Ltd. was established in April 2008 as a private Company under the Companies Act. It has been engaged in developing applications for nanotechnology through research and development since August 2009 with private sector partners.
