Nanostart-held ItN Nanovation: Water treatment technology among winners of '365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas'

Frankfurt / Saarbrücken | Posted on December 10th, 2010

The highly compact next-generation water treatment technology, developed by Nanostart (OTCQX: NASRY)-held ItN Nanovation AG, called Nanovation, has been selected as one of the winning innovations of "365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas," a competition sponsored by the German federal government. The technology is based on the company's proprietary nanoceramic flat filter membrane system.

The award presentation noted that "Nanovation is revolutionizing water treatment and is a superb example of inventiveness, creativity and the richness of ideas within Germany. With this pioneering idea of using nanoparticles for filtration, an entirely new outlook has been opened for providing clean water to all mankind."

"We are extremely proud to be one of the selected ‘Landmarks' in the Land of Ideas competition," said Lutz Bungeroth, CEO of ItN Nanovation. "We are pleased that our mobile, containerized water treatment modules were selected from a large number of innovations from throughout Germany. We have put a lot of effort into implementing the results of intensive research and German engineering into a next-generation product solution which opens new opportunities for utilizing our limited water resources in a clean and highly efficient way."

The innovation from ItN Nanovation lies in the unique nanoceramic coating used in its filter membranes. Compared to conventional filtration solutions, the new technology from ItN Nanovation offers significantly superior performance and durability. The highly compact water treatment modules in standard container format are portable and can be used wherever needed. Installation requires no major building work and minimal lead time. Particularly in the arid regions of the world, ItN Nanovation sees tremendous growth potential for this next-generation water treatment technology.

Nanovation is one of 365 winners, or "Landmarks", selected in this year's "Germany: Land of Ideas" competition, an annual program to foster innovation under patronage of the Federal President of Germany. Some 2,200 entries were received from throughout Germany for this year's competition.
