Energy News:

Nansulate® is mentioned in the new report by the UK's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Under this study, five nanotechnological applications were subject to detailed investigation: fuel additives, photovoltaics (solar cells), the hydrogen economy, electricity storage and insulation. In these areas, nanotechnology could contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 2 % in the near term and up to 20 % by 2050 with similar reductions in air pollution being realised.

You can read their report, "Environmentally Beneficial Nanotechnologies: Barriers and Opportunities" on the DEFRA website.

Environmental Information :

Nansulate® coatings contain none of the ingredients contained on the EPA listing as Class I or Class II Ozone Depleting Substances, nor do they contain any ingredients on the listing for Global Warming Potential (GWP)that are non-ozone-depleting.

Reference for Class I listing: http://www.epa.gov/ozone/ods.html

Reference for Class II listing: http://www.epa.gov/ozone/ods2.html

GWPs for selected non-ozone-depleting substances listing:
http://www.epa.gov/ozone/geninfo/gwps.html

Based upon the information from the US Environmental Protection Agency listed at the above links, Our products do not contain negative Global Warming Potential (GWP) or Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) ingredients.

Nansulate® coatings are water-based, non-toxic, and low VOC.

Our products do not contain carbon nanotubes.

 

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint - How Can Nansulate Help?

If you haven't yet heard the term 'carbon footprint' you most likely will very soon. Airlines already offer an add-on to tickets allowing customers the choice to offset their carbon emissions (carbon footprint), and if you do a web search on the term you will find many organizations that offer calculators and other tools for you to calculate your carbon footprint.

Carbon footprint is basically a term that refers to the amount of carbon emissions you use in your daily life. The gas used in driving your car creates x amount of carbon emissions, and the electricity that you use in your home creates x amount of carbon emissions. By insulating areas of your home - walls, ceilings, attic, water pipes, hot water heaters, basements, etc... - with Nansulate® coatings you can reduce the amount of energy you use. This in turn reduces the amount of energy needed by your local power grid, which results in less carbon emissions.

Simply put:
Nansulate® = Less energy used
Less energy used = reduction in carbon emissions

An example of how Nansulate reduced one household's carbon emissions
from home heating by 6,317 lbs per year.

Connecticut Home Example - Heating Oil Use in Gallons:

Before Nansulate
4 year Average
After Nansulate
1st year
620 gallons per year
365 gallons
$1,618.21 per year*
$952.65 per year*

Heating related Carbon Emissions per year**
15,229 lbs

Heating related Carbon Emissions per year**
8,912 lbs

 

This equated to a savings of 41% in heating oil use, a dollar savings of approximately $665.56 per year, and reduction of 6,317 lbs. carbon emissions from heating.

*Cost per year was calculated using the July 16, 2007 figure for the average Connecticut regional retail heating oil price ($2.61 per gallon). Source: State of Connecticut Office of Policy and Management (www.opm.state.ct.us).

**Carbon emissions data calculated from www.epa.gov
