With Otegui’s vision for this green technology of the future, humanity will benefit he insists on some very specific levels. “This will be one of the many technologies that will see the light in the near future. It will change humanity little by little and at its scale by reducing carbon emissions. It won’t change their lifestyles to a great extent since this product will already be part of their lives at their homes or workplaces without interfering in their everyday activities. It will only change the quality of their lives.”
Even many architects want Nano Vent-Skin to make their buildings 100% green and they would welcome more innovative materials that will give them greater options to design buildings.
If Otegui finds the answer in Calgary or Alberta in general to propel his proprietary invention Nano Vent-Skin into a different stratosphere, the next step would be to start setting goals and working on the project. “Canada has great potential because of its natural resources. Calgary in particular has shown a lot of interest in renewable energy and is making a great effort in achieving specific goals. They would benefit by having a product that would allow them to fulfill the targets that they’ve set to reduce carbon emissions in the near future.”
Though this product has great potential, skeptics have challenged Otegui. “I’ve received comments about this technology being too theoretical and not so realistic. This is because there is no similar project on the market to compare it with.” However, Nano Vent-Skin will change the world from an ecological perspective by improving the quality of life as it cleans the air and lowers carbon emissions on a much larger scale.
Otegui’s inspiration had everything to do with thinking outside of the box since the design for Nano Vent-Skin was initiated by breaking the patterns of old paradigms. Though all elements of this technology are out there already, the problem is integrating the different technologies in the same production process. “Right now nanotechnology is being used separately in single tasks. Universities, research labs, the microchip industry, and new textile materials are just an example. In order to develop Nano Vent-Skin, you need to integrate different nanomaterials in the same nano-manufacturing process.”
Otegui takes a glass half full approach rather than a glass half empty one. His parting comments are directed to the manufacturing industry, nanotechnology engineers, sustainable experts, investors, environment supporters, and the public to make this remarkable invention part of the green alternative repertoire. “I would ask them to see this project as a new possibility. They don’t need to read it as black and white trying to find things that won’t work in the near future. They need to see it as an alternative and try to see bigger goals in the future to come.”
