Home > Press > Applied Nanotech Announces New Sensor Research Contract

Abstract:
Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: APNT) announced that its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), has been awarded a contract to develop a mercaptan sensor by the Northeast Gas Association (NGA). Mercaptans, also known as thiols, are the sulfur containing chemical compounds which are added to natural gas as a safety measure to give the gas its distinctive odor. Currently, the typical method for sensing mercaptan within the natural gas industry relies on personnel to physically sniff for the presence of mercaptan. The development of a mercaptan sensor would eliminate the subjectivity of current testing methods, and provide greater safety, efficiency, and reduced costs.

"We are excited to support the Northeast Gas Association in its efforts to address the technical needs of the natural gas industry and their customers," stated ANI CEO, Dr. Zvi Yaniv. "The mercaptan sensor will incorporate ANI's non-radioactive ionization source technology, enabling the development of sensing device without the need for radioactive material."

The Northeast Gas Association, through its NYSEARCH committee manages one of the premier natural gas research, development and demonstration (RD & D) programs in the United States. The initial phase of funding for the ANI mercaptan development program provides for full compensation of all work performed up to $548,673.

ABOUT NORTHEAST GAS ASSOCIATION

NGA represents the natural gas industry in the Northeast U.S., serving almost 10 million customers in this active and growing market. NGA member companies transport and distribute natural gas to homes and businesses throughout the eight state Northeast region. Through its NYSEARCH committee, with a membership of eighteen companies from throughout the United States and Canada, NGA also conducts cutting-edge research and development, and help advance the position of natural gas as the most efficient and clean-burning fuel to power the economy and achieve environmental goals.
