CNano Technology Limited (CNano) announced that it has received regulatory approval from the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to sell multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) through its subsidiary in the USA. This approval of consent order places CNano on the short list of manufacturers approved to supply MWNTs in the United States under the strict nanotechnology regulations of the EPA. The approval results from the Pre-Manufacturing Notice (PMN) filed by CNano for the MWNTs produced at its 500 tons per year facility in Beijing, China.

The growing list of commercial applications for carbon nanotubes includes conductive plastics for electronics and automotive, structural composites for sporting goods and aerospace, conductive coatings for electronics and aerospace, electrodes for batteries, super capacitors and fuel cells among others.

June 22, 2009 was when the CNano carbon nanotube factory was first announced.
