CARSON CITY, NV | Posted on March 5th, 2007
USGN believes unique production methods are being used to configure the company's nanofiber-based cigarette filters to obtain the best form for specific toxin reduction. The overall goal is to identify one or more configurations that will be suitably matched to current high-speed, high-volume cigarette production methods. USGN and Vitusa have advanced NanoFilterCX to this stage of development in response to feedback from major tobacco manufacturers who have reviewed NanoFilterCX since its initial unveiling in 2004.
"Vitusa Products has been a proactive strategic partner for us in working to build awareness and acceptance in the tobacco industry of NanoFilterCX's potential to effectively reduce unwanted components in the cigarette smoke stream," said Pat Scorzelli, Chairman and CEO of USGN. "We believe this feasibility study is a great opportunity to prove NanoFilterCX designs can be well-integrated into our potential customers' current high-volume cigarette manufacturing product lines."
