ROCHESTER, N.Y, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- NaturalNano Inc., a company whose
primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring
nanomaterials, announced today that Michael Riedlinger, NaturalNano's
President, will present at the Lux Executive Summit: The Business Impact of
Nanotechnology on Monday, October 24, 2005, in Cambridge, Mass.
Riedlinger will discuss potential applications in a broad range of
industries including: polymers and plastics, electronics, and cosmetics.
Specific applications in agricultural uses that leverage and benefit from
natural nanotubes' unique chemical and physical properties will be presented
in more detail. This includes applications for herbicides, pesticides and
NaturalNano has rights to multiple issued and pending patents that cover
processes, compositions, and derivatives for the nanotubes found in halloysite
clay. More than 200 commercial applications have been identified to date.
The Company is also developing proprietary, patent-pending extraction,
separation, and classification technologies to enable the production of more
uniform nanotubes to meet the higher standards required for advanced
applications of the naturally occurring nanotubes. These applications include
precise, controlled, and extended release of application-specific additives
for use with cosmetics, polymers and plastics and other areas.
Extracted from clay mined at Utah's Dragon Mine operated by Atlas Mining
Company (OTC Bulletin Board: ALMI), the tubule-rich halloysite clay can be
supplied in very large quantities. NaturalNano has rights from Atlas and will
be establishing processing capabilities to produce nanotubes to customer
requirements for specific applications.
