Breakthrough In Study Of Aluminum Could Yield New Technological Advances
Eurasia Review
Aluminum, in solution with water, affects the biosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere and anthrosphere, the scientists said in their report.
Maria Victoria Peeler's insight:

Fellow techies, don't forget to pay attention to the environment.  Manage your nanotech waste carefully.  Since the quantities are so small, you can hold for a while until you find appropriate disposal methods.
