ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NaturalNano, Inc.
(OTC Bulletin Board: NNAN; FWB: N3N), a company whose primary business is
discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring nanomaterials,
announced today that Michael Riedlinger, president, will present on nanotube
technologies at the Ohio Nanotechnology Summit at the Greater Columbus
Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday, April 4, 2006 at 11:20 a.m.
Riedlinger will discuss NaturalNano's discovery of and continuing
development of unique technologies for commercializing naturally-formed
halloysite clay nanotubes.
Riedlinger said, "Among the growing number of significant nanotechnologies
being introduced to the marketplace, natural nanotubes represent a significant
value to multiple industries. Leveraging the anticipated growth potential of
nanoscale materials, NaturalNano is leading the way towards commercialization
of these multi-application nanomaterials. We are looking forward to
presenting the NaturalNano story at this highly respected conference and
interacting with potential partners and other leading edge nanotechnology
NaturalNano has rights to multiple issued and pending patents that cover
processes, compositions, and applications 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 production of more uniform nanotubes to meet the higher standards
required for advanced applications of the naturally occurring nanotubes. These
include precise, controlled, and extended release of application-specific
additives for use with cosmetics, polymers and plastics and other areas.
