Industrial Nanotech Inc.'s Nanocoatings Recognized by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
(Nanowerk News) Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving solutions, today announced that the Company's patented nanotechnology based Nansulate® energy saving coatings have been selected for inclusion in the Resource Efficiency Atlas, an international collection of examples of innovative and resource efficient products and technologies. The 3-year project is being carried out on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) by the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, the Frauenhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO, University of Stuttgart and Trifolium-Beratungsgesellschaft.
"This will be an important resource for governments and corporations looking for innovative energy efficient technologies to reduce global energy consumption," states Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Nansulate® is the Company's patented product line of award winning, specialty coatings containing a nanotechnology based material and which are well documented to provide the combined performance qualities of thermal insulation, corrosion prevention, resistance to mold growth, fire resistance, chemical resistance and lead encapsulation in an environmentally safe water-based coating formulation suitable for severe service environments."
Ms. Crolley continues, "Nansulate® has been effectively used in buildings, homes, factories, on heat process equipment, steam pipes, refrigerated trucks, airports, and many other applications throughout the world for the past seven years to reduce energy consumption and related carbon emissions. It is an affordable technology that is easily implemented with a rapid payback period on the original investment, much shorter than most energy saving technologies, and often it pays for itself in less than a year in real dollar cost energy savings. We look forward to introducing more people to our technology through this important and insightful Resource Efficiency Atlas, which is the result of three years of research by these respected institutions, and who's goal is to offer a collection of resources and technologies that can contribute to sustainable development."
The Resource Efficiency Atlas is an international collection of efficient technologies and products. The Atlas is expected to be available by end March 2011 and will be available in German and English in both print and online versions.
