ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- NaturalNano Inc., a company whose
primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring
nanomaterials, announced today that Sarah Cooper, NaturalNano's Chief
Technology Officer, will present at the Nano-App Summit, Tuesday, October 18,
2005, at the Wyndham at Playhouse Square in Cleveland, Ohio.
Cooper is one of a select few panelist chosen to present at this event to
specifically address how nanotechnology is being adapted into new products in
the automotive industry. Her presentation to representatives of leading nano-
developer companies such as Ford, GM, Goodyear, PPG, and Air Products &
Chemicals will focus on applications and how to bring nano-innovations to
market. Cooper will also participate in the automotive panel discussion:
Developing Nano-based Products from the Lab to the Marketplace -- Lessons
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 different 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.
ABOUT THE NANO-APP SUMMIT 2005
Nano-App Summit 2005 is a high-level conference of nanotechnology product
developers and companies who have successfully used nanotechnology in the
development of breakthrough products. The summit allows experts and major
manufacturers to report on what researchers, chemists and engineers should be
working on today and where they are finding their most immediate gains with
nanotecyhnology -- sharing business models' approaches to nano product
development that assess and minimize risk and improve time-to-market.
