Graphene

HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (CSE: HG) ("HydroGraph" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has secured a $90,000 grant in funding per year for two years for composite work at the Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composite Research at Western University.

With the increasing impact of Greenhouse Gas emissions on climate change, there is growing interest in alternatives to internal combustion engines. This research will study HydroGraph's graphene in thermoset resins to understand the effect of filler material on mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The results will provide valuable information that will help increase the supply and use of graphene for applications that require lightweight and superior mechanical and energy properties.

HydroGraph's patented Hyperion detonation process achieves the highest quality graphene in the most environmentally friendly manner due to its low energy consumption, absence of emissions, and reduced waste product. HydroGraph is the only company in the Americas to be certified by the Graphene Council as a Verified Graphene Producer, an independent 3rd party certification that validates graphene production facilities, verification of production methods and volumes, and quality control processes.

In addition to fuel cells, polymer composites pose a unique opportunity due to their mechanically strong and lightweight properties and electrical and thermal conductivity. In the past, graphite fiber has been used (among other carbon fillers) to generate electrical conductivity, however, its use has stalled because of high costs and availability.

"We are thrilled to secure this placement to apply HydroGraph's material to work in composites and evaluate the potential for future composite development," said Stuart Jara, Chief Executive Officer of HydroGraph. "As interest in HydroGraph's fractal graphene and reactive graphene has grown significantly, we are nearing the point of exhausting the capacity of our pre-commercial scale production units. Further, we have active customer interest in composites and this grant will help HydroGraph develop additional applications for this high value market."

HydroGraph was awarded the grant from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Counciland Mitacs.

The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research is a joint venture between Western University and the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology in Pfinztal, Germany. The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research at Western develops, tests, validates and characterizes new lightweight materials and advanced manufacturing processes at industrial scale.

"As America's most advanced center for industrial scale testing and Canada's only open-access, full-scale press with manufacturing capacity, we are thrilled to work with The Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Composites Research," said Ranjith Divigalpitiya, Chief Science Officer, HydroGraph.

The project is being led by grant co-applicant and PI, Professor Andrew Hrymak, Special Advisor to the President of Western University on Industry Partnerships, the Green Economy, and Sustainability. Professor Hrymak played a significant role in securing the long-term partnership between Western and the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology, representing the first-ever comprehensive joint venture between a Canadian university and an institute of Fraunhofer-Gessellschaft, Europe's largest application-oriented research.

Samples of HydroGraph's fractal and reactive graphene are available for testing purposes upon request. Interested parties can submit requests through info@hydrograph.com .

Is Tesla Making a Graphene Battery? (Updated 2022)

The worldwide popularity of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) offerings such as the Model 3 sedan has been good news for important battery metals such as lithium, graphite and cobalt, which are used in electric vehicle (EV) batteries.

The Model 3 in particular appeals to consumers — with its US$40,000 price tag, Tesla believes it will help make EVs available to the masses. According to Statista, it's the world’s best-selling plug-in EV model, with global unit sales of more than 500,000 in 2020.

Because Tesla’s EVs run on lithium-ion batteries, demand for lithium, along with graphite and cobalt, is expected to increase as Tesla sells more of its cars. But some investors are wondering whether Tesla’s lithium-ion batteries may eventually include another interesting material: A single-layer crystalline allotrope of carbon known as graphene.

What Factors Impact Graphene Cost? (Updated 2022)

Graphene has the potential to spur advances in a variety of sectors, from transport to medicine to electronics. Unfortunately, the high graphene cost of production has slowed commercialization.

Graphene prices have come down substantially since 2010, when it reportedly cost tens of thousands of dollars to make a piece of high-quality graphene the size of a postage stamp.

However, the 21st century wonder material remains expensive. Specific graphene pricing data is hard to come by, but relatively recent estimates peg the commercial cost of graphene in a range of US$67,000 and US$200,000 per metric ton. The wide variance in price range is mainly because price is congruent with quality and not all applications require the highest quality graphene.

Investing in Graphene Companies (Updated 2022)

Investing in Graphene Companies (Updated 2022)

Graphene is often heralded as the “wonder material” of the 21st century. Investing in graphene companies offers investors exposure to a growing number of graphene applications across a diverse set of industries.

Grand View Research is forecasting that the global graphene market size will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 43.2 percent between 2021 and 2028 to reach US$1.68 billion by 2028. The firm says that revenue for electronics industry applications will be a major contributor to the growth in demand for graphene.

For its part, IDTechEx Research expects industries such as energy storage and composites to make up most of the graphene market, comprising 25 percent and 40 percent of the sector by 2027, respectively.

What is Graphene?

What is Graphene?

Widely regarded as the “wonder material” of the 21st century, graphene’s beginnings are modest. The 2D material was first produced in 2004, when two professors at the University of Manchester in England used Scotch tape to peel flakes of graphene off a chunk of graphite.

The resulting material was a crystalline allotrope of carbon, a characteristic graphene shares with diamonds and graphite. All three are made up of carbon atoms bonded in different ways. For instance, graphite consists of carbon atoms bonded in sheets of a hexagonal lattice, while graphene is made up of a single sheet of graphite.

Of course, simply knowing about the product’s composition doesn’t explain why so many people are excited about graphene. To give investors a better idea of the promise graphene holds — in terms of both applications and profit potential — we’ve assembled a brief overview of the basics, including production, uses and its future. Together, they are a start to answering the question, “What is graphene?”
