NaturalNano to Present at Foresight Conference

NaturalNano Inc., a company whose primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring nanomaterials, announced today that Dr. Aaron Wagner, NaturalNano's Director of Research and Development, will present at the 13th Foresight Conference -- "Advancing Beneficial Nanotechnology: Focusing on the Cutting Edge" on Tuesday, October 25, 2005, in San Francisco, Calif.

Dr. Wagner will participate in a panel discussion entitled "Nanotech for Food Production and Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Agriculture." He will specifically present NaturalNano's research concepts for agricultural applications that leverage and benefit from naturally occurring halloysite nanotubes' unique chemical and physical properties. Dr. Wagner will be joined by panelists Norman Scott, Cornell University Dept. of Biological & Environmental Engineering and Peter Singer, Director, University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics, in a panel discussion

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 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, 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.
