MIAMA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 13, 2021 / Novusterra Inc. (Private) is pleased to announce that it has closed the non-brokered private placement of $316,512, which is oversubscribed from the targeted amount of $250,000.

We believe with further development of the patents for our specific targeted applications that graphene can represent a major breakthrough in energy storage and worldwide water filtration and water quality. We have had a long relationship with the principals of American Resources and we are excited that they had confidence in our ability to further develop and commercialize these two patents to create value for our combined shareholders. We look forward to communicating further milestones as we continue to execute on our growth initiatives."
