Elcora Resources Corp. (TSXV:ERA,OTCQB:ECORF) announced that it is continuing to develop “a unique graphene production process.” According to President and CEO Troy Grant, the process “can use a wide variety of graphite sources as raw material to produce consistent high quality graphene.”
As quoted in the press release:
The Elcora system uses vertical integration in the mining, processing, and refining to optimize the graphite for the process. The company has developed a new industrial process, which is a trade secret that is capable of transforming Elcora graphite into high quality graphene. The synthesis of the graphene, itself, does not depend on the graphite source as long as it is properly processed. This means that the Elcora process can be used with a wide range of graphite sources.
Grant also said:
The development of this unique graphene production process as well as the equipment is a significant milestone for Elcora. [T]he beauty of the system is that it can work with a wide variety of graphite sources so we are not limited by the graphite supply. Once completed, we will be able to supply the market with consistent high quality graphene that is made from natural graphite. We believe this will be a huge contribution to the graphene industry.
