Published on 2011-05-20. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving solutions, announced that the Company has entered into an agreement with Qatar Nanotechnology Company to serve as exclusive distributor in Qatar for Industrial Nanotech, Inc.'s patented Nansulate® product line of thermal insulation and protective coatings. Qatar Nanotechnology is a distributor and service provider of nanotechnology based solutions to commercial, industrial, and residential customers in Qatar and the Gulf Region. Their management team owns numerous companies in the region and has a long-term track record of success.

"We look forward to expanding into this country with Qatar Nanotechnology Company," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Their management team has an excellent record of commercializing new technologies. Their Technical Director has worked for major U.S. companies including Nova Measuring Instruments, Philip Morris USA and Intel. Their President and CEO has 19 successful businesses ranging from cleaning services to construction services, which they plan to supply with Nansulate® coating solutions. Qatar is a fast growing area, which is investing heavily into new housing and office buildings, as well as in new infrastructure and equipment and plants for the oil, gas, refining and petrochemicals sectors. We look forward to this being an important market for Industrial Nanotech."

Qatar has proved oil reserves of 15 billion barrels, which should enable continued output at current levels for 37 years. Qatar's proved reserves of natural gas exceed 25 trillion cubic meters, about 14% of the world total and third largest in the world. In 2010, Qatar had the world's highest GDP per capita, while the economy grew by 19.40%, the fastest in the world. The main drivers for this rapid growth are attributed to ongoing increases in production and exports of LNG, oil, petrochemicals and related industries. In 2009, Qatar was the United States' 5th largest export market in the Middle East, trailing behind the U.A.E., Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Qatar has attracted an estimated $100 billion in investment, with approximately $60-70 billion coming from the U.S in the energy sector. It is estimated that Qatar will invest over $120 billion in the energy sector in the next ten years.
