Imagine it, now imagine it smaller

10 Israeli nanotech companies exhibited their cutting-edge solutions at Imaginenano 2015, Europe’s largest nanotechnology conference.

Tiny but powerfully influential in myriad ways: That could describe Israel itself, but it also describes the nanotechnology advances made by Israeli academia and industry.

And that was the message that 1,000 attendees of Imaginenano 2015 – Europe’s largest nanotechnology conference – received loud and clear from 10 Israeli companies and their products showcased recently in Bilbao, Spain.

Valentis Nanotech is developing an industrial process to infuse CNC with properties to be used as advanced polymeric UV-blocking transparent films for food packaging, as well as for agricultural sheeting and for products in defense, transportation and other industries.

Incorporating different types of nanoparticles into Valentis Nanotech’s composites adds specific functionality that can be tailored to the particular application, according to CEO Dov Segev.

The first Valentis product is a coating for food packaging that is thinner and stronger than currently available coatings. It has high-barrier properties to block UV rays, oxygen and moisture, so that food remains fresh and has a longer shelf life.

Valentis was founded in 2013 and operates within Trendlines Agtech, part of The Trendlines Group.In July last year, Valentis signed a memorandum of understanding with one of Israel’s leading agricultural thermoplastics applications companies to collaborate on new product development.
