How do we find more energy resources, and produce them cleaner with less overall impact to our land? Nanotechnology, that’s how. The equipment used at the University of Oklahoma Nanotechnology lab can see organisms at the molecular level. The results are making it easier to find energy and produce it with pinpoint accuracy. We spoke with Dr. Mark Curtis on how this technology works.

EnergyHQ is powered by the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board – OERB – which is voluntarily funded by the state's oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners. The OERB provides free environmental restoration of abandoned well sites and works to educate the state's citizens about the oil and natural gas industry.
