NanoTechnology in Costa Rica

Nanotechnology is science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers.

The concept of nanotechnology began with a talk entitled “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom” by physicist Richard Feynman on December 29, 1959. Mr. Feynman described a process in which scientists would be able to manipulate and control individual atoms and molecules.

In our current time, 50 plus years later, scientists and engineers are finding a wide variety of ways to use nanotechnology in the fields of medicine, agriculture, oil and gas, construction, biotechnology and more.

Costa Rica has welcomed a multinational firm, NOXTAK, that specializes in nanotechnology for the control and mitigation of electromagnetic pollution from any source to start operations in the country. The company is planning to start hiring personnel for manufacturing, engineering, and design in 2019.

NOXTAK will be developing solutions in Costa Rica for the control of electromagnetic pollution from electronic devices. The company will also be offering an array of services for technical environmental impact assessment.

The Minister of Foreign Trade, Dyalá Jiménez, believes that the NOXTAK’s desire to set up operations in Costa Rica is a strong sign that they are willing to take advantage of the countries human workforce. “Companies such as NOXTAK are becoming schools for Costa Ricans, changing our daily lives and challenging us to be better every day for the wellbeing of the majority. We congratulate them on the inauguration of their operations in this country and hope to continue growing together and learning to benefit many people through innovation.”

The director of NOXTAK Latinoamérica, Carlos Aguilar, commented: “In the medium term, with the exponential growth of our company in other parts of Central America plus the virtual transfer of assembly operations to Costa Rica, 15 additional people will be hired from here to the end of October 2019, and 20 more will be hired for assembly and testing. At the moment, there are 11 of us working locally in the administrative offices.”
