The Federal Government will soon produce a national nanotechnology policy to guide the operation of nanotechnology in the country, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, Mr. Bitrus Bako Nabasu has said.
When it is eventually produced, the policy will spearhead the use of nanotechnology in the country and would make products to be lighter, smaller, stronger, cleaner and precise, Mr Nabasu said.
The Permanent Secretary said this when he Inaugurated the Committee on the First Validation Exercise on the Draft National NanoTechnology Policy Document in Abuja on Friday.
He mandated the Committee to produce a National Nanotechnology policy to guide the operation of Nanotechnology in the country, assume responsibility, and come up with a draft National Nanotechnology policy document.
He said Nanotechnology is an emerging technology set to revolutionise the manufacturing technology process by making most products lighter, smaller, stronger, cleaner and very precise.
Mr. Nabasu said that application and utilization of this technology is being made in various fields such as agriculture, health, medicine, and chemical industries to enhance the quality of lives of citizens.
