    for water related information transfer The situation in Flint for example was brought to the public eye because of a concentrated effort in social media by concerned members of the public and journalists she said And with a more connected water industry these situations could be unearthed and addressed before they become a crisis Today people can get instant data on all aspects of their lives including personal devices that can monitor every move and vital sign There is no excuse for waiting a month for the water bill to arrive to see how much water a household or business has consumed Progressive companies like Global Water Technologies OTC GWTR are developing new smart water tools that can meter usage in real time and help consumers understand where they can conserve to save money These smart water tools offer data for personal use and across the entire distribution system According to the company s CEO and Our Water Counts contributor Erik Hromadka As water prices rise and efficiency becomes more important smart water tools empower everyone to be part of the solution at the local state and national levels Emerging technologies to measure water flow pressure pH conductivity turbidity temperature chemicals pollutants and other data points including regulatory compliance have sparked job growth making water related big data one of the nation s fastest growing economic sectors Water 2 0 has become a watering hole for professionals which has enabled the cross pollination of technologies On World Water Day March 22nd the Administration convened

Washington DC Top 10 Water Resolutions for 2016 Posted on February 23rd 2016 No Comments Every year many of us create a new set of resolutions I will exercise more change my diet and focus on my health But what if we resolved to change our planet Let s add saving water to our list of resolutions The topic of water in America has increased during the last 5 years Water conservation is in due to numerous water crises in the United States 2 year drought in California flooding in the Midwest flooding in South Carolina and North Carolina and various water problems throughout our nation Whether you are a municipal water supply professional part of the water industry organization or a concerned community member there are easy resolutions we can make in 2016 If we each commit to small conservation efforts then we can have large impacts for the future of our water supply This year we have created 10 resolutions to put us one step further towards saving our water In 2016 1 Become a Water Evangelist In your community attempt to raise the consciousness of individuals in regard to America s water infrastructure issues On December 23 2015 the Office of Science Technology Policy OSTP convened the first White House Roundtable on Water Innovation Today it is cool and hip to discuss water 2 I will fix my leaky faucets Leaky faucets that drip at 1 drop per second can waste up to 2 700 gallons of water each year Make 2016 the year we put that number to better use 3 I will replace old toilets with newer updated models Older toilets can use three gallons of clean water with every flush while newer toilets use as little as one gallon This small change will help to reduce water waste in your household It makes a difference My water bill decreased after replacing 3 toilets 4 I will shorten the length of my shower Reducing your shower time from ten minutes to five minutes could save an average of about six gallons of water a day If you lose track of time in the shower then you can time yourself by how many songs play while you are in there Try to get your shower time down to one or two songs I have convinced my 18 year old daughter to reduce her shower time from 30 minutes to 20 minutes Trust me it was not easy 5 I will turn off the tap while I brush my teeth Running the tap while you brush your teeth can waste up to 4 gallons of water each day In 2016 resolve to turn the faucet off while cleaning your pearly whites 6 I will run my washing machine and dishwasher when they are full It is easy to get in the habit of starting to clean clothes or dishes when there are only a few items By waiting until you have a full load you could save up to 3 400 gallons of water a year Holding off until you have a full load also has the added benefit of saving you 25 to 50 of the energy of small loads 7 I will not over water my plants A good rule of thumb for watering your lawn or plants is that a lawn needs 1 inch of water a week and perennial plants and shrubs will need from 1 inch to 2 inches a week Annuals do not have a specific rule so follow the plant tag when you water those 8 I will reuse water Reusing water at home is easier than you might think all it takes is an awareness of how and when you are using water For example use the water from the dehumidifier to water your house plants Consciously ask yourself where water can be used before you pour it down the drain 9 Cut back on drinking bottled water In 2015 bottled water outsold soda in America Sadly 5 out of 6 empty water bottles end up in the landfill 10 I will recycle One of the best ways to conserve water is to buy recycled goods as well as recycling your own goods It takes about 100 gallons of water to grow and process a single pound of cotton By recycling we can make that number stretch over multiple items WATER NEWS White House Declares Water Emergency in Flint Michigan By Erik Hromadka GE Our Water Counts Blog The Missing Piece in Social Sector Innovation By Catherine

Association NanoBCA encourages all members of the nanotechnology community to respond to this request from the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office NNCO and the Office of Science and Technology Policy OSTP The following information was presented on the White House blog by Michael Meador Director of the NNCO at the White House National Science and Technology Council and by Lloyd Whitman Assistant Director for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials at the White House OSTP Identifying Commercialization Success Stories from the National Nanotechnology Initiative By Michael Meador and Lloyd Whitman Twitter Facebook Email Summary The White House is seeking examples of commercialization success stories stemming from U S Government funded nanotechnology research and development Today the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office issued a Request for Information RFI seeking examples of commercialization success stories arising from Federal investments in nanotechnology research development since the inception of the National Nanotechnology Initiative NNI in 2001 Under the NNI the U S government has invested more than 22 billion in fundamental and applied research in nanotechnology the development of world class user facilities for fabrication characterization and modeling simulation of nanomaterials and the responsible development of nanotechnology The purpose of the RFI being released today is to gather information to better understand how these investments and resources have been utilized to successfully transition nanotechnology based products from the lab to the market In his 2014 State of the Union Address President Obama said Federally funded research helped lead to the ideas and inventions behind Google and smart phones and can unleash the next great American discovery whether it s vaccines that stay ahead of drug resistant bacteria or paper thin material that s stronger than steel Nanotechnology researchers and entrepreneurs are making these innovations plus many others a reality For example pioneering nanotechnology research by two 2015 National Medal of Science and one National Medal of Technology and Innovation recipients has found its way into multiple commercial products Quantum dots developed by Dr Armand Paul Alivisatos can now be found in energy efficient solid state lighting and high resolution video displays and televisions Novel nanofabrication techniques developed by Dr Joseph DeSimone are being put to work producing highly effective platforms for the controlled delivery of vaccines and therapeutics Fin FETs which are 3D nanometer scale transistors co invented by Dr Chenming Hu are used extensively in the latest computer chips And there are dozens of companies involved in creating products that take advantage of the incredible electrical and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene such as data cables that are up to 70 lighter than traditional copper cables and fibers that have more than 20 times the specific strength of steel While not every nanotechnology lab to market success can be recognized by the President we are sure that there are many exciting examples out there that we have yet to learn about And we suspect that many of these have been supported or helped along by Federal investments under the NNI Have you been involved in the successful commercialization of a nanotechnology enabled product Was this success aided by Federal funding through a research grant or contract collaboration with a scientist or engineer at a Federal lab access to one of the many nanotechnology user facilities or based in some way on intellectual property arising from Federally funded R D If so tell us your story by responding to today s RFI CLICK HERE to submit your examples of commercialization success stories stemming from U S Government funded nanotechnology research and development Michael Meador is the Director of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office at the White House National Science and Technology Council Lloyd Whitman is Assistant Director for Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Learn More Request for Information Nanotechnology Commercialization Success Stories Official web site of the National Nanotechnology Initiative
