“The value of nanoparticle technologies have historically been difficult to reach. The Motley Fool, not so incorrectly, observed that “Scientists like to joke that the promise of nanotechnology has been five years away for the last 35 years.”
Why Does Small Matter?
BLH Ecology Concepts has spent the past eight years developing and refining a method for the creation and harvesting of extremely small particles in a manner that lends itself to continuous process applications. Our review of the literature confirms that this process represents a significant discovery in the area of nanotechnology and creates an efficient environment for the production of extremely small particles. The process has a broader application than that existing under current techniques and, as a result, expands the types of materials that can be addressed and the number of applications for which these micronized materials may be relevant. This process overcomes many of the limitations of the current techniques including: 1) the inability to produce significant volumes of particles of uniform size through a continuous process and; 2) to harvest/filter particles in a primarily batch environment.
