Demand for antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings continues to grow as products come to market


Nanocoatings can demonstrate up to 99.9998% effectiveness against bacteria, formaldehyde, mold and viruses, and are up to 1000 times more efficient than previous technologies available on the market. They can work on multiple levels at the same time: antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal, self-cleaning and anti-corrosion. Nanocoatings companies are already partnering with global manufacturers and cities to develop anti-viral facemasks, hazard suits and easily applied surface coatings. The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020 from Future Markets, Inc. provides an in-depth assessment of the latest products, applications, research and producers.

The use of nanomaterials makes it possible to provide enhanced antiviral, antibacterial, mold-reducing and VOC degrading processes, that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, allowing for exceptional hygiene standards in all areas of work and life. As a result, it is possible to create a healthier living and working environment and to offer holistic solutions to people with a diminished immune system. Nano-based surface coatings prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi and viruses via infected surfaces of so called high-traffic objects, such as door and window handles in public places, hospitals, public buildings, schools, elderly homes etc.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings are available in various material compositions, for healthcare and household surfaces, for indoor and outdoor applications, to protect against corrosion and mildew, as well as for water and air purification. Nanocoatings also reduce surface contamination, are self-cleaning, water-repellent and odour-inhibiting, reducing cleaning and maintenance

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings can be applied by spraying or dipping and adhere to various surfaces such as glass, metals and various alloys, copper and stainless steel, marble and stone slabs, ceramics and tiles, textiles and plastics.

Nanoparticles of different materials such as metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, metal oxide nanoparticles, and graphene-based materials have demonstrated enhanced anti-microbial and anti-viral activity. The use of inorganic nanomaterials when compared with organic anti-microbial agents is also desirable due to their stability, robustness, and long shelf life. At high temperatures/pressures organic antimicrobial materials are found to be less stable compared to inorganic antimicrobial agents.

Antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings applications include, but are not limited to:
• Medical facilities and laboratories
• Medical equipment;
• Fabrics and clothing like face masks;
• Hospital furniture;
• Hotels and other public spaces;
• Window glass;
• Pharmaceutical labs;

IX Water Launches SEC Regulated Crowdfunding for Products to Treat Wastewater Produced by Oil and Gas Industry


Golden, Colorado USA— IX Power Clean Water, Inc. announced today that it is raising funds through an SEC-regulated crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine (StartEngine.com/Ix-Water) to enter the market with its machines that clean highly contaminated water produced by oil and gas recovery, mining, and other industries.

The oil and gas industry generates 150 billion barrels of natural wastewater each year. IX Water’s advanced system treats a wide variety of dangerous pollutants in industrial wastewater such as organic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and dissolved salts, which are all hazardous to human health.

Instead of disposing of the toxic water underground or in surface ponds, or treating it with even more chemicals, IX Water cleans the water so it can be used again. The cleaned water meets or beats the stringent standards set in the U.S., European Union, and China.

Oil and gas companies currently spend $75 billion per year to treat naturally produced wastewater. IX Water costs at least 50 percent less than traditional treatment and disposal methods and it creates a new source of clean water for reuse by industry, recycled for other uses, or discharged to the environment. IX Water’s goal is to provide clean water for 50 cents to $1 per barrel.

The technology was invented by scientists at the world-renowned Los Alamos National Laboratory in a unique collaboration with New Mexico Tech and the University of Texas to provide an economical, efficient, and complete system to treat oil and gas produced water.

Satipharm launches new Advanced CBD products – safeguarding your health and wellness


Health and wellness company Satipharm has launched their new CBD Advanced range starting with two products – Active and Focus. In addition to CBD, these capsules include targeted vitamins to help safeguard your health.

The Active capsules contain Satipharm’s patented CBD microbeads plus vitamins A, D, K and E. These vitamins have been specifically chosen to complement the CBD, for the effects they have on muscles, skin, bones and vision. Importantly, the Active capsules contain 200% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin D, which supports the functioning of the immune system. This ensures the body has adequate levels of vitamin D needed to produce the antimicrobial proteins that kill viruses and bacteria.

The Focus capsules contain the CBD microbeads, plus a targeted selection of B vitamins to support mental performance, psychological function and the reduction of tiredness & fatigue. B vitamins are necessary for creating neurotransmitters that regulate emotions, including serotonin and dopamine. Vitamin B6 also contributes to normal immune function.

Jonathan Hartshorn, CEO of Satipharm commented: “Supporting the health of our minds and bodies is always important. Getting quality sleep, minimising stress and getting sufficient vitamin D are three simple ways to help our immune systems function well and fight infections. The launch of our Advanced Active and Focus products enables individuals to take the right supplements to support their mental and physical wellbeing.”

Satipharm’s CBD Advanced range is powered by their patented Gelpell® technology which protects the cannabinoids by embedding them in microspheres. This Gelpell® technology has been clinically proven to increase the bioavailability of CBD, making Satipharm capsules the best way to take CBD. Taking a Satipharm 10mg CBD capsule is equivalent to taking 3.5 times the dose (35mg) of CBD oil.

About Satipharm
Satipharm is a health and wellness company, specialising in the development of cannabinoid-based products and focusing on clinical evidence-based recommendations to customers and patients. The Company’s mission is to deliver the highest quality products designed specifically for the needs of its consumers.

CBD (reference Dr Perry Solomon, CMO HelloMD)
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring active cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, CBD has no intoxicating effect (high). These cannabinoids are just two of at least 113 identified in cannabis. CBD is most commonly used to treat insomnia, depression, anxiety and joint pain. Preliminary clinical reports indicate CBD to have analgesic properties, in addition to anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-psychoactive, and anti-convulsant properties. CBD achieves this by directly (or indirectly) affecting neurological receptors responsible for pain modulation, inflammation regulation, and mood and stress management.

Bioavailability – is the proportion of a consumed substance which enters the bloodstream when introduced to the body and so is able to have an active effect on the body. A substance (such as CBD oil) may be readily absorbed but undergo significant metabolism by the liver before the active cannabinoids reach the circulation, thereby reducing its effect in the body.

Dentsu Tracking supports the European Union to fight illicit trade in tobacco products.


Dentsu Tracking, a brand of Dentsu Aegis Network, is collaborating with the European Commission and Member States of the European Union (EU) to design and operate a track and trace system as part of EU legislation on tobacco control (Tobacco Products Directive).

The track and trace system supports EU Member States in the fight against illicit trade. It, therefore, plays an important role in protecting public health, state budgets and legal economic operators.

This industry-wide scope required an innovative platform and data analysis system capable of tracking more than 26 billion products per year across the EU.

“As far as we know, this is the world’s first solution giving 360 visibility of the supply-chain across an entire industry”, says Philippe Castella, Managing Director of Dentsu Tracking. “We are honoured to work with the European Commission and the EU Member States. It is a unique project allowing 28 Member States on one single platform to track domestic and transnational sales, as well as products exported outside of the EU. No other platform is connecting this volume and complexity of data”.

Dentsu Tracking was awarded the concession in December 2018 based on an innovative solution that provides public authorities with visibility of the total supply-chain from manufacturing to retail. It also ensures that the track and trace system is under full control of public authorities, including access to the collected data, as required by the Tobacco Products Directive and the WHO FCTC Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products.

As of May 20th, 2019, cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco must be marked with a unique identifier code. All the involved economic operators are required to report all tobacco product movements and related financial information. This information is collected and stored in a central system, operated by Dentsu Tracking. The necessary reporting, queries, business analytics, and alerts are provided as part of the Dentsu Tracking solution. This allows Member States and the European Commission to monitor the movements of legal tobacco products (tracking) and to determine at which point a product was diverted into the illicit market, or vice versa (tracing). The analysis can also be used to highlight anomalies, to detect fraudulent activities, and to confirm if products are legitimate when passing inspection points.

All movements are tracked instantly for automated real-time traceability at any point along the supply-chain, and with all the information fed into one centralized database. This takes traceability to a new benchmark. In comparison, in pharmaceutical regulation there is a “check in–check out” approach tracking only a small portion of the supply chain. In food-industry regulation there is typically a “one up – one down” approach without any centralized repository, which means that the traceability and visibility of a product from start to end must be rebuilt manually.

Dentsu Tracking is a brand of Dentsu Aegis Network. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Core product and service solutions include traceability, security, industrial IT, business analytics, and supply chain digital transformation.
