Eurotech Increasing Marketing Support Activities

Published on 2005-06-22. Author : SpecialChem

MANASSAS, Va. -- Eurotech, Ltd. (OTC Pink Sheets: EUOT - News) announced that it has signed a nondisclosure agreement with Environmentally Friendly Materials GmBH and will be providing marketing support to EFM for the commercialization of the Hybrid Nonisocyanate Polyurethane (HNIPU) technologies.

In the recent shareholder update from Eurotech, Mr. Carey Naddell, Eurotech's Chairman and CEO, revealed that a number of marketing activities had been initiated to support the commercialization of Eurotech's patented HNIPU technologies in the US. Now that Environmentally Friendly Materials has obtained a non-exclusive license to market and sell HNIPU in the US from Eurotech's licensee Global Matrechs, Inc., Eurotech will be sharing the results of its recent marketing activities with EFM. As reported earlier, Eurotech is in discussions with a US polymer manufacturing company concerning the establishment of a US based toll production capability for HNIPU and will be working with EFM to secure a stable production capacity in the US. Any resulting sales of HNIPU by EFM in the US will benefit both Global Matrechs and Eurotech through the respective licensing agreements that specify royalty payments on product sales.

Eurotech is attempting to increase the supporting activities for the waste sensing and monitoring market and has recently entered into discussions with the developer of a highly advanced electromagnetic environmental sensing technology for the rights to market sensing and monitoring services in the US. Should current discussions be successful, Eurotech would be able to offer significantly improved sensing and monitoring capabilities for nuclear waste, and complement Eurotech's EKOR nuclear waste encapsulation technologies. Meanwhile, Eurotech is continuing its efforts to find non-nuclear spin-off applications of its EKOR technology in the industrial coatings market and has been discussing a transportation industry application with a regional paint company that supports a major transportation fabricator.

Over the past two years, Eurotech has successfully settled many of its prior outstanding debts but has been rebuffed by Global Matrechs in attempts to settle our differences. Management believes this is preventing the Company from moving forward to a fully operational and reporting state. Eurotech may be left with no alternative but to take its own legal actions against its licensee, Global Matrechs, Inc. if the two sides can't come to an amicable agreement. Meanwhile, Eurotech will maintain and try to expand its technology portfolio in order to support current and future technology licensees.
