NaturalNano to Present at Nano-App Summit 2005

NaturalNano CTO to Discuss Application and Adaptation of Nanotechnology in the

Automotive Industry

Oct 14, 2005, 01:00 ET from NaturalNano Inc.

    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.
     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.
