Nanotechnology offers great potential for finding technological answers to key technological questions. In the field of cleaning and disinfection, nanotechnology opens up opportunities to create intelligent surfaces and new materials that enable better processes that deliver solutions for a more efficient and effective use of resources and raw materials.
Multidrug-resistant bacteria, poor hygiene and multi-resistant germs cause the conditions for increased disease and infection. In many areas, climatic conditions speed up the propagation and spread of germs. Germ resistant surfaces and antibacterial coatings strongly help to reduce this risk.
