The RCGI and Nanotechnology: An Interview with Dagoberto Silva, CEO of MOF Tech

MOF Tech is a nanotechnology and advanced materials company with a focus on the development of customized and environmentally responsible metal organic frameworks (MOF’s). With versatile applications such as gas adsorption, carbon capture, and food production, our highly porous MOF’s offer innovative solutions for challenges in energy, environment, and agriculture. RCGI held a conversation with its founder and CEO, Dagoberto de O.
