The newest board member of a Houston-based nanotechnology testing firm sees a "clear need arising" for the company's services to facilitate the safe and environmentally responsible development of nanoscience ventures at the speed of business.
Bob Payne has been named to the board of directors of nanoTox(TM),
( http://www.nanotox.com ) and brings more than 30 years experience in the
field of petrochemicals and process technology licensing at the
"We're seeing continued rapid growth in nanotechnology R&D," said
Payne, "along with corresponding plans for future investment in
nanoproducts and services."
"Needless to say, it's vital to this new industry that the products
created are environmentally friendly and safe for all who may come in
contact with or use them," Payne said.
"We're talking to companies that share our feeling that the industry
can't wait for regulators to take action," said Jan Dryselius, the
company's Chairman, "and Bob has worked with these research and
manufacturing giants for decades."
Dryselius noted Payne's background is a near-perfect fit with the
mission of nanoTox.
"He brings global experience and has worked on projects with and
provided services to internationally-recognized chemical and engineering
Payne was the Director of Licensing for one of the world's largest
vinyls producers, and successfully managed a multi-million dollar process
