Quote of the day

Drinking water is third only to oil and electricity in terms of largest industries in the world.

"The current size of the global water market is $287 billion right now, and expected to be $413 billion by 2010. It takes an incredible 105,000 gallons of water to make a single automobile and extraordinary amounts are used for making everything from clothing to semiconductors."

~F. Mark Modzelewski, Vice President of Strategic Opportunities, NanoDynamics

"Over half the world population will face a very serious water shortage in the next 30 to 50 years, and we need to be prepared for that. Water will be one of the biggest applications of nanotechnology in the near term."

~Zvi Yaniv, President and CEO, Applied Nanotech
