Industrial Nanotech Receives DOE Approval
April 25, 2010
NAPLES, FL -- Industrial Nanotech Inc., an emerging global leader in nanoscience energy-saving solutions, has been approved as a member of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Industrial Technologies program, Save Energy Now, as an ALLY organization. Save Energy Now is a national initiative that aims to drive a reduction of 25 percent or more in industrial energy intensity in 10 years. To achieve this goal, DOE's Industrial Technologies program is partnering with Save Energy Now LEADER companies and Save Energy Now ALLY organizations.
"For many years, we have worked closely with manufacturers to assist them in reducing energy costs on a daily basis," explained Francesca Crolley, V.P. Business Development for Industrial Nanotech Inc. "As a member of the Save Energy Now ALLY program, we can offer these manufacturers more tools and assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy's Industrial Technology program to help them meet their goals of reduced costs and increased efficiency. We can support the goals of reduction of 25 percent or more industrial energy intensity by assessing areas in factories and facilities where our nanotechnology-based Nansulate® coatings can be used to insulate steam pipes, boilers, building envelope, roofs and other areas. Nansulate reduces energy used for heating and cooling as well as for heat processes used in manufacturing. Our technology has a well-documented and proven track record of reducing energy costs in factories by 10 percent to 20 percent or more, and we look forward to helping more companies achieve those savings and become Save Energy Now LEADER companies. Reducing energy consumption across the nation is vital to our future, and we are proud to be working with the U.S. Department of Energy to achieve these goals through the Save Energy Now program."
In 2008, manufacturing client Henateks, a textile manufacturer for Nike, Adidas and other apparel companies, used Nansulate insulation coatings throughout its plant on heat exchangers, dye machines, steam boilers and other heat-process equipment. The company documented reduced energy savings of 20 percent due to use of the coatings. This equated to a savings of over $460,000 and reduced liquid natural gas consumption by 1,980,943 m3. The payback period was less than one year.
