Nanogate (ISIN DE000A0JKHC9),
a leading international nanotechnology enabler, is boosting its sales potential
by instigating a system partnership with GEA Group AG. GEA is an international
technology company which focuses on process technology and components for sophisticated
production processes in a range of applications, including air filtration.
The objective of the strategic cooperation is to develop and market innovative
systems for more efficient filtration in the field of ventilation. The first
joint applications are due to be marketed in the coming months and offer significant
sales potential, even in the current financial year.
As part of the system partnership, Nanogate will enhance the GEA Group's existing
filter systems. This will increase the performance and recoverable value of
the filters, which are used in ventilation systems such as air-conditioning
units for buildings. Nanogate-Technologie is used to upgrade the filter systems
with additional functions such as antimicrobial properties, improved flame retardancy,
greater electrical conductivity or longer useful lives than conventional systems.
To achieve this, the company uses its expertise from projects such as the technology
platform N_charge®, which permanently enhances the performance of filter
Ralf Zastrau, CEO of Nanogate AG, says: "The system partnership with the
GEA Group is an important milestone for marketing our technologies in the specialist
field of air filtration. We offer innovative finishes which improve the performance
and efficiency of filter systems. We hope that this cooperation will result
in sustainable, innovative technology and make a considerable contribution to
sales and earnings in the medium term. With this project and its other technologies,
Nanogate is helping to make more efficient use of resources, design safer HVAC
systems and ultimately protect the environment. GreenNano© - i.e. sustainable
business based on nanotechnology - will prove a major growth driver for Nanogate
in the long term.
