Nano Labs CTLE Literally Redefines “Green Energy”


Press Release: Nano Labs Corp. – Wed, Dec 19, 2012 7:10 AM EST

QDOTS imagesCAKXSY1K 8DETROIT, Dec. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nano Labs Corp. (CTLE) today announced it has developed an innovative “intelligent illumination system” for greenhouses, that works with commercial light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to reduce energy consumption and improve processes contributing to the growth of plant life in agricultural greenhouses.

The new system reduces energy consumption while at the same time providing improved control over artificial light used to stimulate photochemical activities in plants for growth and the production of chlorophyll. By employing a “The Pulse Modulated Chlorophyll Fluorescence Monitoring Stage”, the innovative technology provides for the automatic control of light in relation to a whole range of greenhouse and plant conditions, including seasonal adjustments tailored to the type of vegetables and plants being illuminated.

“Through nanotechnology, we believe we’re taking LEDs to another level for commercial greenhouses and the agriculture industry,” said Nano Labs’ President Bernardo Chavarria. ” Our technology offers better control in relation to light frequency (or wavelength), light quality, and pulse width of the light beams emitted by the LEDs, which hold important advantages over other existing artificial illumination sources such as fluorescent lamps, metal halide lamps, and high pressured sodium lamps. Our system offers higher efficiency in terms of energy consumption, quantum efficiency of the light produced, provides longer lifespan, controllable emission spectrum, safer handling, as well as improved disposal procedures.”

In developing the technology, Nano Lab’s goal was to help world agriculture to improve the crop yields and the quality of produce, while maintaining low energy consumption and minimizing the environmental impacts, Mr. Chavaria explained.

“We all know that light, to a large extent, is responsible for life on Earth. However, for a long time Science has worked only to a limited degree to study how we humans can use artificial light to promote plant growth. In recent years, though, we’ve seen very impressive developments in light-emitting diodes (LEDs), not only in terms of their  improved illumination capabilities, but also in relation to affordability. We believe LEDs hold much promise for creating new technologies for the 21st century agriculture,” said Dr. Victor Castano, CEO of Innovation at Nano Labs.

The novel system for greenhouses has allowed Nano Labs to determine the effect of pulsed light, as opposed to simple continuous light, in a frequency range from 0.1Hz to 100 kHz, with red and blue LEDs on the chlorophyll fluorescence emission of tomato plants, demonstrating that it is possible through the Company’s innovations to control and enhance plant growth at will.

This technology represents an answer to the greenhouse growers problem worldwide, of making as efficient as possible the crop yield in their agricultural greenhouses, while maintaining a low energy consumption, thus having a favourable impact on the environment. Also, the technology aims to link two important industrial activities which would seem to have little relation: photonics and agriculture, opening new market opportunities for both. With Nano Labs` approach, it would be possible to increase the vegetable production in greenhouses, independently of the season, for the pulsed LEDs light replicates the crop cycles efficiently at a low energy cost.

CENTENNIAL, CO–(Marketwire – Nov 8, 2012) – Nano Labs Corp. ( OTCBB : CTLE ), a nanotechnology development company, today announced that it has brought on Dr. Victor Castaño as Chief Research and Innovation Officer, an appointment timed to coincide with the company’s readiness to expand its market presence and explore new global business opportunities.

In assuming the scientific and academic leadership role in the company, Dr. Castaño will provide distinguished scientific oversight to Nano Lab Corp’s advanced R&D base and product portfolio. He will advise, direct and work in league with a strong team of scientists, designers, engineers, and business and marketing specialists to pursue commercialization of innovative nano products and materials holding real market potential. As well, he and the team will promote opportunities through a store of hundreds of peer-reviewed international papers, patents, and prototypes representing some decades of work.

Dr. Castaño is a member of the faculty and the founding Director of the Center for Applied Physics and Advanced Technology (CFATA) at UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico), the most distinguished academic institution in the country — and the only university in Mexico with Nobel Prize laureates among its alumni. The professor is himself a graduate of UNAM, where he obtained his Doctorate in Science (Physics) in 1985 and has had a distinguished career of international level ever since.

With additional knowledge in chemistry and mathematics — and holding numerous distinctions and memberships from academic groups around the globe — Dr. Castaño is a preeminent scientific figure in the field of nanotechnology worldwide. He also has served as a visiting scientist at IBM‘s Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York, and as a Fellow of the Editorial Board of many leading journals in Materials Science and Engineering. He has been part of Committees in both Universities and Industries in practically all continents.

“We’re delighted Professor Castaño is participating with us at Nano Labs Corp. He has attracted more media attention in Mexico than any other scientist through his discoveries and inventions, and he is celebrated for solving practical problems. Of particular note is his development of an anti-graffiti paint and a high-strength polyamide coating for bullet-proof textiles, which are original nanotechnology applications currently in production,” said Nano Labs President and CEO Bernardo Chavarría.

Said Dr. Castaño: “I’m glad to collaborate with Nano Labs Corp in these exciting times. As the company undertakes initiatives to pursue ever more promising and interesting challenges, I look forward to what lies ahead. It’s a great group here, and I see nothing but success on the horizon.”
