-- NanoLogix, Inc. , a nano-biotechnology company engaged in the research, development and commercialization of technologies for alternative sources of fuel, today announced that noted deep sea diver John Chatterton has been retained as a consultant. Chatterton is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain, and holds numerous commercial, scuba and rebreather diving certifications. Currently, Chatterton co-hosts the Deep Sea Detectives television series, which showcases his groundbreaking international diving work, in 57 episodes to-date, on the History Channel. Documentaries about Chatterton's diving expeditions and discoveries have also aired on HBO and the long-running TV series NOVA on PBS. Chatterton is also a consultant to the film and television industries.
In August of 2005, Chatterton and his partners put together an expedition to the most famous shipwreck in the world, RMS Titanic. They dove the wreck to a depth of approximately 12,500 feet in the MIR submersibles from the Russian Research Ship, Keldysh. Their exploration was featured on the History Channel special Titanic's Final Moments - Missing Pieces. This award-winning project was a first for Chatterton and his long time dive partner Richie Kohler in that they worked both in front of, and behind the camera. They produced the program with their close friend, Emmy Award winner Kirk Wolfinger. Their research on Titanic has since continued and another History Channel documentary is in the works.
Bret Barnhizer, Energy Marketing Consultant for NanoLogix, said, "John and I first worked as a team when we served together in Vietnam in 1970 and 1971. Our careers have now reconverged and I am looking forward to the results of our efforts in the field of alternative energy. I believe John will be a tremendous asset to the NanoLogix team. As a deep sea diver, John's knowledge of the technical aspects of rebreather devices and gas mixtures as they apply to biological processes is directly relevant to our patented hydrogen bioreactor system. With John's expertise, I'm confident that he will assist the Company in refining and improving upon our processes. Additionally, as we seek to partner with international companies, I am thrilled to have someone of such high caliber represent NanoLogix."
John Chatterton commented, "NanoLogix is one of the companies that is going to make a difference in the future of energy and technology. This company respects vision, intellect, and courage. It is incredibly exciting for me to be associated with such a responsible, forward thinking company."
Prior to his career in television, Chatterton spent 20 years as a commercial diver in and around New York City, and was working in the water underneath the World Financial Center, across the street from the Tower #1, on 9/11/01. The cornerstone of his work is researching and diving the deep shipwrecks of the world. In 1991, Chatterton's discovery and subsequent identification of the German submarine U-869, off the coast of New Jersey, has been the subject of several television documentaries. The story was turned into a bestselling book by Rob Kurson called Shadow Divers, and the movie rights were purchased by 20th Century Fox.
Chatterton was a member of the first technical diving expedition to Ireland and the legendary RMS Lusitania, in 1994. A few years later, at a depth of 400 feet, he was the first diver to use rebreather diving technology on the wreck of HMHS Britannic, near the island of Kea in Greece. Shortly after that, he was the sole American on a British expedition, sponsored by the U.S. Holocaust Museum, looking for the historic shipwreck Struma in the Black Sea near Istanbul.
