Abstract:
Raymor’s process is 25 times more efficient, less hazardous, and less expensive to operate than any other existing technology in the world, while being non-polluting

Production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT) begins using a plasma process unique in the world

Montreal, Quebec, Canada | May 05, 2005

Raymor Industries Inc. (TSX-V: RAR) is proud to announce that the commercial production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT) has begun at its industrial facility in Montreal. Raymor’s process is 25 times more efficient, less hazardous, and less expensive to operate than any other existing technology in the world, while being non-polluting. This process was developed at the Institut Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique – EMT.

Raymor plans to increase its current C-SWNT commercial production capacity using high-power plasma torches already installed at its plant. The minimum projected annual revenues for the next 12 months is CDN$1.0 million, CDN$5.0 million in 24 months, and CDN$10.0 million in 36 months. The projected revenues may significantly increase with the increased available production capacity from the plasma torches in place. Within 12 months, production throughput should reach rates of 10,000 grams per day. Raymor will use part of its C-SWNT production for the development of future applications both internally and with strategic, targeted partners.

“C-SWNT produced by our process are of an exceptional quality, and are combined in a way to generate a very unique product,” said Dr. Olivier Smiljanic, co-inventor of this process.

“Our product is beneficial for uses in numerous applications, including new generation batteries, semiconductors, nano-composite materials, or in the biomedical field,” highlights Dr. Frédéric Larouche, also co-inventor of the process.

“The impact of nanotubes in today’s society will be more important than the arrival of the transistor,” adds Dr. Smiljanic.

Dr. Smiljanic & Dr. Larouche already have begun working for Raymor on the installation of the second, high throughput C-SWNT production unit and on the development of new, innovative applications using C-SWNT. According to BCC Research, the carbon nanotubes market will reach US$231.5 million in 2006, with an average annual growth of 173% over the next 5 years.
