ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- NaturalNano Inc., a company whose
primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring
nanomaterials, announced today that President Michael Riedlinger will present
at the Technology Finance 2005 on November 17, 2005 in Milan, Italy. The
conference is an opportunity for NaturalNano to educate the international
financial community on its current research and development, proprietary
capabilities and intellectual property.
Riedlinger will present the Company's business plans and will also
describe commercial applications for halloysite nanotubes. These naturally
occurring particles are hollow tubes with high aspect ratios that are tens to
hundreds of nanometers (billionths of a meter) in diameter.
Halloysite nanotubes' unique geometry enables them to be used for storing,
delivering and controlling the release of various chemicals and materials
making possible a wide range of commercial applications. The potential
commercial applications include use as additives in polymers and plastics,
electronic components, cosmetics, absorbents, and many other product
categories. NaturalNano is making halloysite nanotubes samples available to
prospective customers in these industries.
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.
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 using naturally occurring nanotubes. These include precise,
controlled, and extended release of application-specific additives for use
with cosmetics, polymers and plastics and other products.
Extracted from clay mined at the Dragon Mine in Utah, operated by Atlas
Mining Company (OTC Bulletin Board: ALMI), the tubule-rich halloysite clay can
be supplied in very large quantities. NaturalNano has an agreement with Atlas
to extract nanotubes from halloysite clay at the mine site, which enables the
Company to produce nanotubes to customer requirements for specific commercial
