Nanostart holding ItN Nanovation AG: US partner receives public-sector funding to market the ItN container

Frankfurt / Saarbrücken | Posted on August 1st, 2012

In their funding pledge, the governmental agencies in Iowa particularly emphasized the modular structure of the ItN container and its suitability for use in smaller or decentralized wastewater systems. The money has been provided in the form of a loan of USD 0.5 million (around € 0.4 million) from the Iowa Innovation Acceleration Fund, and is specifically designated for the launch of the ItN container in the USA. EIP is one of five high-growth companies that have now received a funding pledge for economic development in the US state of Iowa.

Terry Branstad, governor of Iowa, explained: ‘We are proud to be able to support some of our innovative high-tech companies, positioning them for growth in our state for years to come.'

Dr. Christoph Weiss, CEO of ItN Nanovation, said: ‘The support for our partner in the launch of the ItN containers from the state of Iowa is very positive in several respects. Firstly, the funds will support and accelerate the marketing process. Secondly, this is a sign of confidence in our technology from the state that is likely to boost our sales and fills us with pride.'
