|ROCHESTER, N.Y. May 6, 2005 — NaturalNano Inc., ananotechnology company whose primary business is discovering, refiningand commercializing naturally occurring nanomaterials, has announcedthat Michael Riedlinger, NaturalNano President, will present at the2005 NSTI Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show, in Anaheim, CA atthe Anaheim Marriott & Convention Center, Monday, May 9 at 11:30 am.|
The presentation, entitled “Promising Possibilities for NaturallyOccurring Nanotubes, ” will focus on the characteristics andapplications of naturally occurring halloysite nanotubes. Mr.Riedlinger will discuss the use of these nanotubes in composites, electronics, cosmetics, and many other applications.
Mined at the Atlas Mining Dragon Mine in Utah, halloysite isreadily available in large quantities and does not require thefabrication infrastructure normally associated with manufacturing ofother types of nanotubes. Earlier this year, NaturalNano Inc. enteredinto a contract with Atlas Mining Company (OTC BB: ALMI) to acquire500 tons of processed halloysite.
NaturalNano’s team of scientists is developing commercialapplications for halloysite nanotubes as additives in polymers andplastics, electronic components, cosmetics, and absorbents.NaturalNano is making samples available to prospective customers inthese industries.
The Company has rights to pending patents that cover processes, compositions, and derivatives and its pending patents cover more than200 different commercial applications. It is also developingproprietary, patent-pending extraction, separation, and classificationtechnologies to enable production of more uniform material to meet thehigher standards required for advanced applications.
