Company Anticipates “Breakthrough” Meetings Will Spur Further Insight on Timelines, Specifics and More on a Variety of Projects Being Discussed with Petrobras

NAPLES, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, today announced that Petrobas, the second largest company in Latin America, is sending a team from Brazil to meet with the Company’s CEO/CTO and PhD Technical Group. The meetings will include six days at Industrial Nanotech’s laboratory in New Jersey and meetings in New York to discuss ongoing projects along with additional future ventures.

Four members of the management and engineering departments from Petrobras headquarters in Rio de Janeiro will be meeting with the CEO/CTO of Industrial Nanotech, Inc., Stuart Burchill, and his R & D team in New Jersey beginning September 7th, 2008 for three days at the Company’s laboratory facilities. Afterwards, they will spend another three days with Mr. Burchill in New York city to discuss a list of topics ranging from product delivery schedules and locations to Petrobras’ expressed interest in a joint venture to build a manufacturing facility for the Company’s products in Brazil to meet their needs.

“As we previously announced, we have been working for some time with Petrobras to replace their current pipeline protective coating protocols and materials with our patented protective coating system and to incorporate our products into their newest pipeline installation, with a projected value for Industrial Nanotech from 3.7 million dollars US to over 5.8 million dollars US for the first project,” stated Stuart Burchill, CEO/CTO of Industrial Nanotech, Inc. “This is a very significant change for them. It has taken two years of work with Petrobras on product application specifications, including my two visits to their headquarters in Rio De Janeiro and a three day tour of ongoing pipeline installation projects in the rural northern region of Brazil. The upcoming visit to our facilities, the meetings with our PhD chemists, and my meetings with them in New York are a breakthrough step and should provide a more specific time frame for the beginning of these projects.”

Burchill also said that the recent launch of the company’s new EPX product line prompted Petrobras to send a team to spend a week with Industrial Nanotech’s management exploring new areas of business in other sectors of their Brazilian onshore and offshore projects and other locations throughout the world.

Petrobras, short for Petroleo Brasileiro S.A., is a government-owned Brazilian oil company and one of the world’s largest oil companies. The company controls oil and power industries assets and related business activities in 16 nations throughout Africa, North America, South America and Asia. According to Petrobras President Sergio Gabrielli, their recent major offshore oil discovery, including the Tupi field, would give Brazil the world’s eighth-largest oil and gas reserves.
