Mr. Lofgren will also be instrumental in the anticipated opening of an Applied Nanoscience subsidiary based in Hong Kong giving ANI additional strategic advantages and opportunities in exploiting their broad NEFT(TM) IP platform in some of the most heavily populated regions of the world.

The company has issued patents in Australia, India, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan combining any nanoparticle known or engineered to be capable of destroying viruses, bacteria, fungi or toxins with one or more hydrophobic or hydrophilic filters. The IP coverage spans the following utilization: the filter media can be coated with nanoparticles, or have nanoparticles impregnated into an existing filter to target specific viruses, harmful bacteria and fungi in ambient air. The nanoparticles can be in the form of either a powder or a pellet. When pellets are employed, the hydrophobic or hydrophilic filter is placed adjacent to the nanoparticles. In addition, ANI continues to progress on applications for this broad platform covering 40+ countries which remain active around the globe.

Mr. Lofgren was elected to replace Patrick J. Gorman on the ANI Board who remains in a financial capacity with the company.
