Anyone else using / trying the Nansulate EPX insulation on Refinery projects? <see link

Nanotechnology is moving pretty fast and this is just one of the applications. Another area is NanoTech Institute is working with Carbon Nanotubes & has shown that single & multi-walled nanotubes can produce materials with toughness & tensile strength un-matched in the man-made and natural world materials. Giving this industry a problem challenge & little funding for the application development could pay large returns at this stage of its growth (only been producing some material applications since ~ 1987).
 
Petrobras is making progress in lot areas – recent article that also says they just passed GE as 5th largest company in world (see http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601086&sid=aXgk669Dcwd8 )!  It states Petrobras two recent finds of multi-billion barrel Brazil offshore fields have helped shares rise more than 51% since the Nov 2007 announcements of the finds.
