Industrial Nanotech Enters the Biodiesel Industry With Sale of Nansulate to Biodiesel Plant Manufacturer
NAPLES, FL | Posted on January 26th, 2007
JatroDiesel, an Ohio-based biodiesel equipment manufacturer and
producer has clients worldwide. The company purchased its initial order
of Nansulate, www.nansulate.com, for application on holding tanks,
pipes and other equipment at the newly opened Michigan Biodiesel (MBD)
facility. The refinery started production in November 2006 and has a
capacity of 10-million gallons per year. The application of Nansulate
on equipment in the MBD facility will provide thermal insulation,
prevent corrosion and reduce energy consumption.
"The consumption of biodiesel fuels in the U.S. has been increasing
exponentially since 2004 and is continuing to grow at a dramatic rate.
By working with JatroDiesel, Industrial Nanotech is in a unique
position to penetrate the Biodiesel industry on a grand scale because
our Nansulate coatings provide a superior insulation and corrosion
solution in refineries and plants, particularly in severe service
environments," stated Francesca Crolley, Industrial Nanotech's VP of
Operations & Marketing. "We expect the biodiesel market for Nansulate
to develop in the same manner that the textile industry did where its
application began with one textile plant in Turkey before expanding to
textile plants throughout the entire country followed by China and the
United States," added Ms. Crolley.
Recent legislation has called for enhanced Renewable Fuels Standards
that would include more widespread use of biodiesel and other
alternative fuels. Biodiesel production in the U.S. is expected to
reach approximately 750 million gallons per year in 2007. To meet this
demand, over fifty new, larger-scale plants are in construction and are
expected to come online between late 2006 and 2008. Industrial Nanotech
will market its Nansulate line of coatings to these refineries and
facilities through relationships such as the one with JatroDiesel and
direct marketing to the refineries.
