November 12, 2013 - VANCOUVER, Canada - NanoStruck Technologies Inc. (the "Company") (CNSX: NSK) (OTCQX: NSKTF) (Frankfurt: 8NSK) announces the renaming and rebranding of its product suite:
-its water purification technology solution that utilizes its proprietary chitosan polymer to treat wastewater is renamed and rebranded as NanoPure;
-its custom designed filter to clear water in sanitation systems is rebranded as NanoClear; and
-its proprietary technology system to retrieve precious metals, such as gold, silver and platinum from mine tailings, is renamed and rebranded as NanoMet.
The capacity of each NanoPure plant can range from 0.5 liters to 400 liters per second. The plant model numbers reflect this capacity. A typical model to treat landfill wastewater (leachate) will be NP10 or NP15, for example, to reflect remediation capacity of 10 liters and 15 liters per second respectively. NanoPure's treatment plants can either be built in portable steel containers or constructed on site, with the latter suited for larger remediation capacities.
The precious metal retrieval plants are further rebranded for the metals they primarily retrieve: NanoPlat refers to the Platinum Group Metals (PGM) such as platinum, palladium and rhodium; NanoGold to gold and NanoSilver to silver. Each NanoMet plant can process between 5 tons and 40 tons per hour of mine tailings.
NanoClear filters also make use of the Company's chitosan polymer to clean sanitation water.
Bundeep Singh Rangar, Chairman and CEO said: "NanoStruck's rebranding is designed to make its products easy to understand by the market while also reflecting use of its proprietary technology. Each product does exactly what it says on the tin."
About the Company
NanoStruck Technologies Inc. is a water remediation company with a suite of patented technologies and proprietary nano-biotechnology that provides environmentally safe solutions for water purification, restoration and contamination issues. The Company uses the EPA guidelines as a benchmark for what constitutes safe agricultural or drinkable water, and tailors these guidelines to those standards that are acceptable in the jurisdiction in which the technology is used. Additionally, the Company's technology can be used to recover heavy and precious metals from mine tailings.
The first water treatment facility began operating on January 14, 2012 in Mexico. It has been successfully removing leachate from water in a landfill and producing clean water certified by Conagua, the federal water commission of Mexico.
In addition, the Company has a patent pending technology that recovers precious metals contained in tailings. At the end of the process, the water is remediated and can be reused.
The Company's current business model is based on entering into long term agreements (plant installation and operating agreements) with clients pursuant to which the Company funds the capital costs of building and installing its treatment plants. Pursuant to a plant installation and operating agreement, the client pays the Company a negotiated dollar value per cubic meter of treated water with a negotiated guaranteed minimum number of cubic meters to be treated per annum.
The Company also holds a 100% undivided interest in the Holy Cross Property, which consists of a single mineral exploration tenure covering 2,005 hectares within the Omineca Mining Division of north central British Columbia.
