NaturalNano to Moderate Panel Discussion at NanoCommerce & Semi NanoForum

NaturalNano Inc., a company whose primary business is discovering, refining, and marketing naturally occurring nanomaterials, announced today that President Michael Riedlinger will moderate a panel discussion at the NanoCommerce & SEMI NanoForum -- "Making Small Technology Big Business" being held on November 1-3, 2005 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Riedlinger will moderate the "Environmental & Societal Implications" panel on Wednesday, November 2nd at 2:15 p.m. Panelists include: Kathy Jo Wetter, Program Manager, ETC Group Research; Julia A. Moore; Deputy Director, Project Emerging Nanotechnologies Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars at the Smithsonian Institution; and M. Ellen Mitchell, Ph.D., Director of the Institute of Psychology, Deputy Director of the Institute for Science Law and Technology, and Fellow of the Institute for Biotechnology and the Human Future at Illinois Institute of Technology.

The panel discussion will explore topics related to public concerns and benefits of nanotechnology adoption, emerging environmental guidelines and regulations for manufacturers, and global access to nano-enabled products and related discoveries.

Topic content will be devoted to new areas of nanotechnology innovation with a focus on the anticipation and comprehension of the societal implications presented by this emerging and important technological evolution.

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.

The NanoCommerce & Semi NanoForum is a venue where academic research, state and national initiatives, institutional capital, entrepreneurial talent and seasoned corporate executives meet to create next generational emerging companies in the nanotech sector. This conference and trade show is focused on commercialization, strategic business issues, nanomanufacturing solutions and technical strategy. NanoCommerce & Semi NanoForum is presented by Small Times Media, SEMI, and the NanoBusiness Alliance.
