Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Promotes Its Nanotechnology Coating for Use in Carbon Credits Projects

NAPLES, FL | Posted on May 8th, 2007

CERs, also known as carbon credits are issued under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. Carbon Credits are an exchangeable permit process that provides a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by giving them a monetary value. A credit is awarded for energy saving projects with verified reduction in emissions. By allowing credits to be bought and sold, companies can purchase credits to help them meet quotas for reducing emissions.

"Our nanotechnology based coatings are already reducing energy use in the textile industry by 10% to 20%," stated Francesca Crolley, VP Operations & Marketing. "And that's just one industry example. Our technology is helping companies and individuals achieve their energy reduction goals around the world, and it makes perfect sense to offer our coatings as an effective solution to the reduction of carbon emissions through carbon credit projects."

"Our company is proud to be at the forefront of ‘Green Nanotech', by using the science of nanotechnology to create products that are friendly to the environment and save energy. Reduction of carbon emissions and ‘carbon footprints' is fast becoming the number one priority of corporations both overseas and here in the states, and Industrial Nanotech believes that our science can make a positive contribution to this issue," Ms. Crolley continues.

In a recent textile publication Eyüp Sözdinier of Heneteks A.S. stated: "Because of global warming, our duty is to make use of energy as efficiently as possible; wasted energy is wasted national wealth. This is why I highly recommend this technology to all of the textile industry and other heat using industries."

The market in carbon credits grew faster than expected in 2006, tripling to $30 billion from $10 billion in 2005, according to the World Bank. Nearly $25 billion came from transactions under the EU's emissions trading scheme, while $5 billion was from the sale of carbon credits by developing countries. The World Bank said carbon markets had resulted in capital flows from rich to poor countries of about $8 billion since 2002, and estimated $14 billion of further gains to developing countries through investment in "clean" energy technology.
