Canada | Posted on September 30th, 2009

Vive Nano's primary focus is to be a world leader in the commercialization of nanotechnology-based products and materials for crop protection and catalyst applications. Vive Nano's catalyst technology has several potential applications in clean technology including wastewater treatment, fuel cells, biofuels, fuel additives, solar cells, and water splitting. Vive Nano's catalyst and crop protection products are currently under development with a group of market leading customers/distribution partners. To accelerate development, the company has recently been awarded government funding of $7.8 M. This includes $3.8 M from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), an arm's-length, not-for-profit corporation created by the Government of Canada, for the construction and optimization of a pilot plant.

The Clean 15 competition prize valued at over $60,000 will give direct access to top targeted Global 500 executives at Yet2.com's exclusive Fortune 500 executive briefing. Access includes an exhibit table display, as well as the opportunity to present directly to executives seeking Vive Nano's clean technologies. Vive Nano will also receive approximately $20,000 worth of product commercialization and channel development services from Drayton Weissenfels Inc with the focus on connecting them to sophisticated clients and buyers.

"The Clean 15 competition has identified one of Canada's best clean technologies," says Dwayne Matthews, President of Drayton Weissenfels Inc. "Vive Nano's technology can eliminate certain harmful chemicals used in crop protection and will significantly impact markets in plastics, water, wastewater, energy, bio fuels and fuel cells with increased environmental benefits while drastically cutting costs. We are very pleased to be working with Vive Nano and have a high level of confidence in their success."

"Their technology is a fundamental scientific development that can positively affect many sectors," says Dr. Neil Burnett of OCETA. "The company is well positioned, the intellectual property is well protected, and they have an excellent team."

This year's prize sponsors and reviewers are Canadian Business, Drayton Weissenfels Inc, Yet2.com, OCETA, Rogers Publishing Ltd., and Ricardomcrae.com.

About Vive Nano Inc.

Vive Nano specializes in materials design, using our innovative technology to find simple small answers to big issues. Vive Nano has a patented industry-leading platform technology that produces nanomaterial delivery mechanisms and is inherently "green", both in process and in its end products. Our ultra-small, water dispersible nanomaterials are easily incorporated into existing products and processes. Unlike competing technologies, our proprietary, best-of-breed process is done under simple conditions and results in nanoparticles that are ultra-small (<10 nm), do not agglomerate and have significant cost advantages. While our main focus is on the development of products for the catalyst and crop protection industries, we also work with customers to design nanomaterials for other applications and make our materials available for sale to researchers.
