Home > Press > Selah Joins EPA Nanomaterials Stewardship Program: Selah to Participate in the In-Depth Program

Abstract:
Selah Technologies announced today that the company has committed to join the In-Depth portion of the Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program (NMSP) administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA's NMSP was developed to provide a firmer scientific foundation for regulatory policy decisions by encouraging submission and development of information for nanoscale materials.

Selah Joins EPA Nanomaterials Stewardship Program: Selah to Participate in the In-Depth Program

Greenville, SC | Posted on January 21st, 2009

"Selah is eager to help the EPA better understand the environmental impact of our carbon-based quantum dots," said Michael Bolick, President and CEO of Selah Technologies. "Joining the NMSP and offering our assistance and contribution is the right thing to do. We look forward to collaborating with the EPA on the In-Depth Program and welcome additional collaborations with companies who share our interest in the product stewardship of carbon-based nanomaterials," continued Bolick.

The NMSP is comprised of two components - a Basic Program and an In-Depth Program. The Basic Program was designed to encourage the submission of available data on nanoscale materials and thus far 29 companies and trade associations have provided information on 123 nanoscale materials. The In-Depth Program provides a way for participants to work with the EPA to identify where additional information may be useful in regulatory decision making and to identify ways to generate this information. Selah is pleased to be one of the first companies to participate in the more comprehensive In-Depth Program.

Selah Technologies obtained a worldwide exclusive license in 2006 from Clemson University to develop and commercialize two nanotechnologies. Selah Dots™ are patent-pending brightly luminescent carbon-based nanoparticles designed to be used as bio-imaging agents, replacing fluorescent dyes, microbeads and heavy metal-based quantum dots. Selah Tubes™, enriched carbon nanotubes protected under US Patent No. 7,374,685, have a number of applications due to their impressive electrical conductivity properties.
