Home > Press > Altair Nanotechnologies obtains congressional support for ongoing research

Abstract:
Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. (NASDAQ: ALTI), a leading manufacturer of safe, high-performance NanoSafe® battery pack products and nano materials technology used in energy, power and life sciences applications, yesterday obtained congressional support for funding two important Altairnano projects. The U.S. Senate approved a military funding budget that included funding for two cutting-edge nanotechnology research and development projects that Altairnano is conducting.

Altair Nanotechnologies obtains congressional support for ongoing research

RENO, NV | Posted on October 4th, 2007

One project receiving continued funding allocations in the proposed bill was for a 2.5-megawatt stationary power supply for the U.S. Navy. It involves the development of large, advanced lithium Titanate energy storage packs to replace diesel fuel powered generators on the Navy's largest ships. Altairnano's lithium Titanate energy storage packs provide energy in an environmentally sustainable manner and with safety characteristics not found in other batteries. A second project is the development of nanosensors that can detect explosive materials and chemical warfare agents that might threaten soldiers in combat, with more accuracy and reliability.

"Funding for these projects helps Altair Nanotechnologies employ 90 highly-qualified staff in the Reno area, expand the high-tech work going on in Nevada, and could provide significant benefits to our armed forces," said Altairnano President and Chief Executive Officer, Alan J. Gotcher, PhD. We are pleased that Congress recognizes the importance of our research and development projects for helping to reduce energy usage and provide new levels of detection against threats to our troops."
