APPLIED NANOSCIENCE INC. TO COMMENCE U.S.-BASED PRODUCTION OF NANOFENSE™ FORMULATION IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
Applied Nanoscience Inc. (ANI), a nanotechnology-based air filtration performance company, today announced that construction of a pilot plant has begun in Downs, KS with direct participation of the Kansas Department of Commerce. Last month, a wholly owned L.L.C. of the Company was awarded a PPE Manufacturing Grant to aid in the global fight against COVID-19. ANI had earlier this year announced the completion of process enhancements to ensure reliable production scale-up of the company’s proprietary antimicrobial NanoFense technology, a U.S. patented nanoparticle formulation. The company is working closely with both Downs Enterprises, Inc. and Kansas State University’s Technology Development Institute (TDI) on the project.
ANI has (16) issued international patents protecting their broad NEFT™ platform in 13 countries spanning five continents. The patent coverage includes three main methods of associating nanoparticles with filter media: (1) coating the filter media with a powder of nanoparticles, (2) impregnating the nanoparticles into the filter media, and (3) having pellets of nanoparticles located adjacent to the filter media.
