Green Earth Nano Science Signs Licensing Agreement with UK Company

Published on March 11, 2009 at 10:49 PM

Green Earth Nano Science, Inc., (GENS) - Canadian environmental solutions developer and manufacturer of GENS NANO + SolarStucco - self-sanitizing and self-cleaning photocatalyst coatings and proprietary air + surface purification system, signed a licensing agreement with SEA SOLUTIONS LTD, a UK company.

Self-cleaning coatings are designed for exterior applications. For indoor applications, the company supplies self-sanitizing coatings marketed under the brand GENS NANO. The company has developed a complete range of environmental services and solutions distributed through a network of regional applicators, contractors, entrepreneurs and distributors. Hygienic coatings and other environmental solutions are used by the company to improve bio security, indoor environments, and to protect against Sick Building Syndrome, surface bio-contamination and even bio terror attacks.

Sea Solutions Ltd. is an innovative green technology consulting and solutions provider that brings added value to the estate market, restoration industry, sanitization and food industry markets in the UK.

"We are very happy to be able to offer GENS NANO green solution in the United Kingdom. GENS technology meets the needs of our customers who have to deal with a society always more aware of the importance of hygiene. There is therefore a great need for active protection from bio terror or natural bacteria and virus outbreaks that threat our civilization. Sea Solutions aims to bridge the technical gap between genuine nanotechnology developers and major UK manufacturers from various sectors. Together with Green Earth Nano Science Inc. we'll be implementing an aggressive marketing strategy to explore all business opportunities with GENS NANO & SolarStucco technology in the UK. Our sole mission will be to assist our industrial clients to bring to market the GENS NANO extensive line of added-value green technologies and environmental services that are part of the licence agreement with Green Earth Nano Science Inc", said Diana Barbosa, managing director at SEA Solutions Ltd. United Kingdom.

The installation of advanced self-sanitizing coating technology protects the building interiors such as walls, ceilings and other treated non-contact surfaces for few years depending on surface type and treated areas. Once coated, the surface remains self-sanitizing provided that enough light is present to activate the photo catalytic effect of titanium dioxide ( TiO2 ). Various tests proved that treated surfaces, when illuminated by light, efficiently control and restrain bacteria growth reducing the risk of surface bio-contamination. This technology brings additional benefits to the environment by diminishing the need of facilities such as water and chemicals used to disinfect walls and ceilings and the impact on the environment. It improves indoor air quality and reduces building maintenance costs. There is never too much protection when it comes to food safety or elimination of any potential sources of bio-contamination. The installation of self-sanitizing natural mineral coating on walls and ceilings inside offices, food processing plants or clean rooms helps to reduce to a minimum any potential risk of bio-contamination through non contact surfaces.

Miroslaw Chrzaniecki, Executive Director of Green Earth Nano Science Inc. VP Global Operations, explained, "This new strategic partnership in the UK provides a valuable new marketplace to expand further into the EU and serves as a potential bridge to other EU markets. With today's danger of potential bio terror attacks, and natural bio threats from avian influenza (bird flu) viruses, E-Col, Listeria outbreaks in food industry, there is an ongoing quest to protect humanity and act proactive to increase protection and survivability in today's dangerous world. Many products will be improved by our green nano coatings to give them unprecedented self sanitizing and self cleaning features. Until today there was no technology that could sanitize and purify the air at the same time 24/7 , and thanks to Green Earth Nano Science efforts and many years of R&D we have a technology today that is proven in action and is 100% green. We are expanding rapidly our global licence applicator and distributor network. We work with companies that can help us to install our system and protect people and animals in every building, home, hotel, hospital, poultry farm, together with other impotent sectors to increase survivability in the case of bio attack."
