Advanced Bio-Fiber to market textile toxins
Mar '09
BioNeutral Group Inc announced that the Company has formed a wholly owned subsidiary, Advanced Bio-Fiber Treatments Corp., which would focus its attention on utilizing its unique chemical technology to treat fibers and textiles with anti-chemical and antimicrobial properties.

Dr. Andy Kielbania, Ph.D., Chief Scientist said, "Ogiene and Ygiene can be used in the treatment of fibers and textiles for a market which is becoming increasingly concerned about dangerous chemicals and pathogens which attach to clothing, especially those who are at high risk for such exposures or where markets place an emphasis on these concerns.”

Ogiene is the trade name given to the Company's formulation which eliminates many dangerous chemicals including formaldehyde, which has been found in lingerie and other garments. Ygiene is the trade name for the Company's formulation that eliminates dangerous microorganisms. These microorganisms found in the garments can cause the wearer to become ill or even cause the spread of infections.

"For people who are prone to sores, allergies to certain textiles, chemicals, and pathogens found in garments and for those who come into contact with bodily fluids, the ongoing protection provided by Ogiene and Ygiene could prove an important element in maintaining personal and family health," said Stephen J. Browand, President and CEO of BioNeutral Group, Inc. "There is an existing market selling garments to diabetics, athletes, students, children and those who are recuperating from medical treatments and this is a billion dollar market which we intend to enter."

Headquartered at the New Jersey Institute of Technology/EDC in Newark, New Jersey, BioNeutral Group, Inc., is a chemical technology-based Life Science company that intends to commercialize a novel combinational chemistry-based technology which can neutralize harmful environmental contaminants, toxins and dangerous micro-organisms including bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi and spores.
