Home > Press > CNano Technology Receives EPA Approval for Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract:
CNano Technology Limited (CNano) announced that it has received regulatory approval from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to sell multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) through its subsidiary in the USA. This approval of consent order places CNano on the short list of manufacturers approved to supply MWNTs in the United States under the strict nanotechnology regulations of the EPA. The approval results from the Pre-Manufacturing Notice (PMN) filed by CNano for the MWNTs produced at its 500 tons per year facility in Beijing, China.

"We are pleased that our cooperative effort with the EPA resulted in a timely regulatory approval. With the recent manufacturing capacity expansion giving us the largest MWNT manufacturing capacity in the world, CNano is committed to be a global supplier of these MWCNTs in compliance with applicable regulations," noted Xindi Wu, President and CEO of CNano Technology. "We have been working on a developmental scale with many North American companies and the EPA approval gives us the green light to complete commercialization leading to early sales," added Xindi Wu.

The growing list of commercial applications for carbon nanotubes includes conductive plastics for electronics and automotive, structural composites for sporting goods and aerospace, conductive coatings for electronics and aerospace, electrodes for batteries, super capacitors and fuel cells among others.

CNano also joined EPA's Nanomaterials Stewardship Program with in-depth participation to work with the agency and other nano materials manufacturers from submission to development of information including risk management practices for nanoscale materials.
