As the private sector and free enterprise begine manufacturing Nano Tech materials which may in fact manufacture themselves through self replication and duplication; there will be issues where the Nano Tech particles which may be self replicating getaway from a laboratory or the building which is manufacturing them.
If you will recall the book by Michael Creighton “Prey” you’ll remember just how serious things got as the Nano Tech organic material started self replicating and taking over the area. Chances are we are a ways off from self replicating organic material in Nano Tech although we eventually we will get there, however non organic Nano Tech material that may be self replicating and used in manufacturing of materials will be so small and tiny that it will be very hard to control and thus, if it escapes the area in which is constructing itself it could cause the real problem for the local ecosystem and become a huge issue with water supplies and pollution.
Since this Nano Tech material will be made out of a specific substance we also know at what temperature it will burn and thus we also know that if we hit with certain types of light such as a laser or infrared we will be able to see it using special microscopic sensors. The sensors will color code the clusters of the Nano Tech pollution and then we can use a chemical laser to zap them by hitting cluster congregations and render them useless and stop the self replication process. So perhaps chemical laser combustion is the best way to control Nano Tech pollution and should be used in abatement procedures and protocols. Consider this in 2006.
