Nano-C Granted EPA Approval to Manufacture, Sell Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes

Nano-C, Inc. received clearance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to manufacture and sell Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) for a wide range of applications.

Nano-C worked extensively with the EPA through the TSCA Premanufacture Notice ("PMN") process to develop effective environmental, health and safety protocols for the production and use of SWCNT. This follows PMN clearances that Nano-C has received earlier for manufacturing fullerene and fullerene derivatives. Nano-C worked with Mr. John V. Massingale of Greenwich Chemical Consulting, a leading authority on TSCA.

"We are delighted to have received the EPA's clearance which provides a sound foundation for Nano-C and its customers. This makes Nano-C an approved commercial source for these advanced materials in the United States. EPA clearance for SWCNT manufacture and sale is a very critical step toward their commercial applications including transparent conductors for displays and touch screens, printed electronics and memory devices," said Viktor Vejins, President and CEO of Nano-C.

"As we are actively working with multiple customers on exciting new memory products, Nantero is extremely pleased to see Nano-C gain EPA clearance," said Greg Schmergel, Co-founder and CEO of Nantero, Inc., a developer of carbon nanotube-based memory devices for consumer and enterprise markets. "This milestone establishes Nano-C as a world-leading supplier of high-quality SWCNT and represents a big step forward towards their use in commercial products. We look forward to working with Nano-C as we deliver a new generation of super-fast, high-density memory."
