Applied Nanoscience Inc. is the owner of an expansive international Intellectual Property platform - NEFT™ (Nanoparticle – Enhanced – Filtration - Technology). The company currently holds issued patents in the United States, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, United Kingdom, India, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan and Viet Nam covering a broad use of nanotechnologies tied to air filtration. This technology platform combines any type of nanoparticle that is known or engineered to be capable of destroying viruses, bacteria, fungi or toxins with one or more filters. If desired, any filter utilized in the NEFT platform may be either hydrophobic or hydrophilic, but it is not necessary that any such filter be either hydrophobic or hydrophilic.
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.
Applied Nanoscience Inc. is a marketer and developer of novel antimicrobial nanoparticle formulations specifically targeted for air filtration applications. Our United States patented NEFT formulation can be applied to or “coated” on virtually any existing filter media and is proven to eradicate a wide range of harmful bacteria, virus and fungi. This enhancement positions a manufacturer for significant advantage in differentiating their current filtration products from competitors.
