DETROIT, Aug. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Labs Corp. (OTCQB:CTLE) is pleased to report the Company has signed a Confidential Disclosure Agreement with Empire EMCO ( www.empireemco.com ) to conduct a due-diligence on the market potential of Nano Labs' innovative nanotechnology which traps the active ingredients in clothes softeners, releasing them in a slower and more controlled manner in fabrics and clothes. The new nanotechnology increases the long-lasting effects and requires less of the active chemicals thus making it more a cost-effective and environmentally friendly technology, as was previously announced on July 9, 2013. Empire EMCO's National Director of Consumer Innovations, Gary Ashe, states, "We thrive on creating value between products and consumers. This new technology answers a number of consumer problems in the marketplace today and we believe we can work together to help bring this to market. We view ourselves as more than suppliers. We embrace collaborative partnerships which bring innovative opportunities to the forefront." Empire EMCO and Gary Ashe have received numerous accolades and patents for their consumer products, including Procter & Gamble's Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Crayola's no-mess series of art tools for children, and BIC Wite-Out, among others, having achieved these successes working with companies throughout North and South America, as well as Europe. Mr. Bernardo states, "Empire is a perfect partner for us. Gary and his team have extensive experience in the areas of Packaging, Household, Personal Care, and the Pharmaceutical markets. We see them as a leader in packaging needs and goods, and driving innovation and product design. We look forward to working with them to deliver our joint solutions to market partners for global distribution." Fabric softeners are short-term chemical solutions that provide clothes, fabrics and textiles, during the washing and rinsing cycles, with the benefits of "smooth feeling" and "fresh scent". One of the reasons (among other technical issues) for the short-term effects of these benefits is the cost of the active ingredients. Typically the cost of these active ingredients in the chemical solution is very expensive, so the concentrations offered are low and therefore the effect less noticeable.
