Nanoforce, Inc. (Pink Sheets:NNFC), a developer of nano-materials, new refining processes and equipment for use in alternative and existing energy sector technologies, announced the incorporation of a new, wholly owned, subsidiary, Energy Farms, Inc. in New Mexico. Energy Farms is developing methods to cultivate and harvest small photosynthetic organisms in refinery waste for the production of biodiesel, a cleaner burning diesel replacement fuel made from natural, renewable sources.
"We are interested in the production of alternative fuels. Micro-algae as a biomass feedstock for the production of biodiesel is an area of intense research at Energy Farms," said Dr. Carolina Kretschmer, CTO Energy Farms.
"We intend to explore the mass production of this form of biodiesel feedstock in hopes that it will form a major component of an eco-friendly 'closed loop' liquid fuel production system," said David Rendina, CEO Nanoforce, Inc.
The adoption of biodiesel as an alternative fuel source is growing. The U.S. Department of Energy predicts the global biodiesel market will reach $70 billion by 2010. Frost & Sullivan expects two new EU Directives will help increase the European biodiesel market from $504 million in 2000 to $2.4 billion by 2007, a compound annual growth rate of 25%.

The Pink Sheets does not require companies whose securities are quoted upon its systems to meet any listing requirements. With the exception of a few foreign issuers, the companies quoted in the Pink Sheets tend to be closely held, extremely small and/or thinly traded. Most do not meet the minimum listing requirements for trading on a national securities exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq Stock Market. Many of these companies do not file periodic reports or audited financial statements with the SEC, making it very difficult for investors to find reliable, unbiased information about those companies. For all of these reasons, companies quoted in the Pink Sheets can be among the most risky investments. That's why you should take extra care to thoroughly research any company quoted exclusively in the Pink Sheets. Be aware that some broker-dealers are required by SEC Rule 15c2-11 to have some information about the issuer. Ask your broker-dealer whether it has any Rule 15c2-11 information before you invest.
