Dais Stresses Importance of Breaking the "Water-Energy Nexus"

As Adoption of NanoClear™ Grows, Company Seeks to Explore Global Market Potential for Commercial Water Reuse and Consumer Growth in Bottled Water

ODESSA, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2015) - Dais Analytic Corporation (OTCQB: DLYT), a commercial nanotechnology materials business selling its industry-changing technology into the worldwide energy and water markets, commented today on the vast market potential brought on by the results to date of the Company's NanoClear™ water cleaning process to 'break' the long standing Water-Energy Nexus, the mutual relationship between water and energy in which the production of one essential requires the presence and abundance of the other.

The Water-Energy Nexus incorporates cost, storage, production, and other facets of the role of both water and energy in day-to-day human activities such as the development of clean water for human consumption, and commercial applications such as industrial manufacturing. It is well known that it takes a significant amount of water to generate electricity, as well as electricity to provide water. This challenge has become more present than ever as countries and regions around the world struggle to solve the axiom of how to cost-effectively produce water or energy when lacking the resource(s) to do so in the face of rising demand for both items.

Recently, Dais Analytic CEO Tim Tangredi penned a byline for Environmental Protection Online, chronicling the challenges within the commercial manufacturing industry to address the Water-Energy Nexus. This market potential possesses remarkable upside, such as for a prominent steel or solar manufacturer that may seek a solution for the production of water, a necessary resource in manufacturing used commonly as a lubricant, solvent, as a seal, for pollution control, for cleaning, steam generation, and more. Dais has identified opportunities with key manufacturers seeking a cost efficient means for producing water to be reused onsite using NanoClear™, a nanotechnology material based application designed to treat contaminated water that can then be reused for various manufacturing facility needs without requiring the significant energy usage that is depended upon today.

Dais is also committed to making a significant difference at the consumer level, one that is of great importance in light of the recent challenges facing residents throughout California, as well as citizens in regions around the world. Two weeks ago, Dais spoke at WaterExpo 2015 - China International High-end Drinking Water Industry Expo 2015 to convey the potential for NanoClear™ to provide potable water to residents currently paying exorbitant prices for clean bottled water. These residents are often faced with limited alternatives to these purchases, as reports have indicated that up to 70% of China's rivers and lakes are contaminated. Dais possesses contaminated water expertise following the development of a NanoClear™ and a two year old pilot at a wastewater facility owned by Pasco County, Florida. The Company is optimistic about this market sector as well, following the recent announcement from water technology provider Xylem Inc. that it will work directly with the City of Los Angeles Terminal Island Water Reclamation Plant to "help increase the region's supply of purified, recycled water."

"The burden of responsibility is significant for manufacturers and municipalities alike to address the Water-Energy Nexus in order to produce and manage water cost effectively, and without requiring significant energy output," said Tim Tangredi, CEO of Dais Analytic. "Using our NanoClear™ technology represents an opportunity for decision makers to not just address, but begin to solve the growing global water issues stymieing brilliant scientists and engineers for years. We are confident that we will experience greater adoption for the Dais family of Aqualyte™ nanomaterial products as we continue to demonstrate the capabilities of making profound changes in cleaning water to 'near parts per billion level' for all forms of contaminated water. We believe this technology will make a significant impact in the quality of life in areas stressed by the existing and growing 'Water - Energy Nexus' by more widely implementing water reuse facilities which in turn contribute to saving our limited nature resources and money as well."

About Dais Analytic Corporation

Dais Analytic Corporation (OTCQB: DLYT) is a nanotechnology business producing a versatile family of membrane materials -- called Aqualyte -- focusing on evolutionary or disruptive air, energy and water applications. The uses include:

  • ConsERV™, a commercially available engineered energy recovery ventilator (an HVAC product) useful for efficient management of ventilation air's temperature and moisture content using the energy found in the outgoing 'stale' air stream to pre-condition the incoming fresh air often saving energy, CO2, and allowing for equipment downsizing;
  • NanoClear™, an early beta-stage method for treating contaminated water (notably most all forms of industrial waste), to provide pure drinking water;
  • NanoAir™, an early beta-stage water-based, no fluorocarbon producing refrigerant cooling cycle useful to replace the existing gas based compression cooling cycle in most all forms of air-conditioning and refrigeration saving a projected 50% in energy and CO2;
  • NanoCAP™, a prototype stage use of the Aqualyte™ family has shown itself to be a disruptive non-chemical energy-storage device which when completed will be useful in extending the value in renewable energy installations, transportation, consumer product uses, and 'smart grid' configurations.

Each use demonstrates the diversity of Dais' core product - Aqualyte™ -- the family of nano-structured polymers and engineered processes having a focus on minimizing consumption of irreplaceable natural resources, and ending the degradation of our environment.
