VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 21, 2016) – Leading Edge Materials Corp. (TSXV:LEM) (OTCQB:LEMIF) is pleased to announce that Swedish government funding has been committed for the Large Area Electronic Platform (LEAP) project, of which Leading Edge Materials is a founding partner. A total of 13 million Swedish Kronor (approximately US$1.5 million) has been committed by KK-Stiftelsen, a fund that supports research and expertise development at Sweden’s newer universities.
The LEAP project aims to identify low-cost, large-scale solutions for the production of low carbon energy, with focus on three sub-projects. A “glass-on-paper” sub-project will develop a substrate for printed electronics; a “printed conductor” project will develop methods for the printing of metal and graphene-based conductors; and a “thermoelectric” sub-project will demonstrate a printed thermoelectric generator using materials develop in the other sub-projects. The printed thermoelectric generator will convert waste heat to electrical energy.
Leading Edge Materials shall provide graphite and graphene based-materials for this important Swedish research project.
Blair Way, President and CEO, stated “We are proud to be partnered with this innovative group of companies and look forward to providing further updates on our contribution to the LEAP project.”
The LEAP research project shall contribute key knowledge for the rapidly expanding markets in the harvesting (solar cells and thermoelectric generators) and storage (batteries and supercapacitors) of low carbon energy. Seven industry partners from different positions along the value chain are participating, all of which have the opportunity to seek market applications.
