NaturalNano Meets 2007 Performance Objectives, Ships First Revenue-Generating Products

ROCHESTER, NY | Posted on January 8th, 2008

NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCBB: NNAN) (FWB: N3N), a developer of advanced nanomaterials and controlled release nanotechnologies, today announced the achievement of its performance goals for 2007, including the commercialization of the Company's patented turn-key nanocomposite additive, Pleximer™, which creates stronger, lighter and less expensive products for numerous consumer industries.

During 2007, NaturalNano (www.naturalnano.com) established three joint development agreements, achieved revenue through initial sales of Pleximer and received third-party validation of its extended release technology. The joint development agreements are expected to open numerous new markets for Pleximer, including the automotive, sporting goods, furniture and packaging industries. The agreements with Cascade Engineering, Nylon Corporation of America and a leading national packaging corporation provide a strong base from which to conduct manufacturing-scale testing and validation of the technical advantages of Pleximer.

2007 accomplishments:

-Executed three joint development agreements directed towards commercialization of polymer nanocomposites

-Executed an exclusive licensing agreement with the U.S. Naval Laboratory (NRL) covering 10 patents in several fields. This agreement, which also provides protection of its intellectual properties, opened an array of extended release applications made possible by filling the Company's halloysite nanotube technology (HNT™) with active agents.

-Began development of filled tube technology for the $300 billion personal products market and the $135 billion agrichemical industry

-Commercialized Pleximer-N™, a nylon-based nanocomposite additive, after manufacturing scale testing confirmed its ability to create stronger, more durable and flexible products while reducing weight and defects

-Achieved the Company's first revenue from the sale of Pleximer

-Received third-party validation for extended fragrance release technology from one of the world's leading personal care and household product companies

-Filed six patent applications in 2007

"2007 was a strong year for NaturalNano as we executed our plan and made important strides in nanocomposite product commercialization and revenue," said Cathy Fleischer, President of NaturalNano. "The momentum we've established will help us in 2008, as we reach a key milestone - incorporating Pleximer into consumer products."
