The Application of Nanotechnology for Green Manufacturing
This paper took the application of nanotechnology for green manufacturing as a point of departure, discussed the important roles of nanotechnology in green design, green material, green process, green package and green treatment as follows: nanotechnology reflected the use of natural resources embodying the harmonious coexistence between human being and nature which happened to coincide with the basic idea of green design; with the further integration of nanotechnology and environmental protection, nanotechnology led the development of green material into a new level; the introduction of nanotechnology gave new ideas to the development of green process; green package based on nanotechnology could meet the special functional requirements of package with outstanding green efficacy; the development of nanotechnology enhanced the existing level of green treatment technology, many existing problems could be resolved. And finally it was pointed out that the green manufacturing technology would make further development under the push of nanotechnology.
