Nanophase achieves environmental ISO certification

May 4, 2005 — Nanophase Technologies Corporation, a Romeoville, Ill., developer of nanomaterials and nanoengineered products, has been certified as having met the international standards of ISO 14001:2004, an Environmental Management Standard. An audit of the Company’s Burr Ridge and Romeoville, Ill. facilities and environmental systems was recently conducted by an ANSI accredited third party auditor, SGS Systems of Rutherford, N.J.

ISO 14001:2004 is the internationally recognized standard for Environmental Management Systems, providing guidance on how to manage the environmental aspects of the organizations activities, products and services more effectively, while taking into consideration environmental protection, pollution prevention, and socioeconomic needs. Registration to the standard enhances environmental performance and compliance to legislated requirements, reduces environmental liability exposure, provides a dynamic structural mechanism for quality environmental management, and increases customer confidence that environmental risks associated with products or services purchased are effectively managed.

“Nanophase has always been very aggressive and proactive in demonstrating compliance with environmental laws and regulations,” commented Robert Haines, Nanophase’s vice President of operations and engineering. “The certification of our environmental programs to the ISO standard further validates our commitment to protecting the environment and being a good corporate citizen.”
