As quoted in the press release:

The principal engineering behind the patent, calls for a pressurized vessel containing salt water and reagents that self-circulate and is disrupted by harmonic vibration. The effects of the salt water and reagents, electrify the pretreated and sized graphite, encouraging the platelets to separate and with the use of upward force through pressurized oxygen the graphene floats to the top of the cell, where electromagnetic force removes the graphene from the cell. The entire process is a continuous feed to hopefully produce high volumes of material. Finally, the recover port is design to allow for many different storage dispersible materials. One of the difficulties in controlling the effects of the superparamagnetic graphene has led to the use of a controlling electromagnetic field as a way to control the movement of the graphene. Essentially turning it off and leading to a specific point.

Paul Ogilvie, CEO of Saint Jean Carbon, commented:

Our work with the universities have helped us a great deal and we are very pleased with the completion of our patent filing. Graphene has many possible applications, however the ability to produce the material and manage it has been elusive. We are enthusiastic that the filing of the patent and the efforts of our engineering may lay a path to the very solution needed.
