Graphene

HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (HG.CN) (the " Company " or " HydroGraph "), a commercial manufacturer of high-quality nanomaterials and alternative-energy fuels, has announced the appointment of Dr. Chris Sorensen as Vice President R&D, Physics.

Sorensen is The Cortelyou-Rust university distinguished professor of physics and a distinguished teaching scholar at Kansas State University. As part of his research at Kansas State to develop and patent carbon soot aerosol gels, he discovered an explosion process producing high-quality, low-cost graphene for which he was awarded the U.S. patent for in 2016. Seeing the opportunity to commercialize graphene and other super-materials through a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly process, HydroGraph exclusively licensed the patented explosion technology through K-State Innovation Partners .

"Our research has been very well-funded to move explosion synthesis forward to make better graphene and continue the development of innovative nanoengineered materials," said Sorensen. "After 45 years in academia and a 5-year relationship with HydroGraph, I decided it was the right time to make this move. I have total confidence that the current leadership team has the right strategy and an enlightened point of view with the courage to ‘peg' the needle. They know the science got us here and the science will push us forward. By improving graphene production economically and environmentally, it has the potential to impact all of our daily lives, much like silicon and aluminum."

As primary inventor of HydroGraph's technology platform, the Hyperion system, Sorensen will lead HydroGraph-funded cutting-edge research in graphene and graphene applications. This includes HydroGraph-funded research at Kansas State University in the application of graphene in composites, lubricants, coatings, inks, catalysts, and carbon fiber reinforced epoxy to name a few.

"Bringing Chris onboard is the obvious next step to furthering our aim to improve people's lives with clean sustainable technology," said Stuart Jara, HydroGraph chief executive officer. "And through our continued relationship with our research partners at Kansas State University, we're already looking ahead to other revolutionary technology and applications as we apply the Hyperion system to other elements on the periodic table."

"We are excited to further our global impact with HydroGraph and our world-class researchers," said Aarushi Gupta, licensing associate with K-State Innovation Partners. "This energetic team is optimistically looking ahead as they apply the Hyperion system to produce a wide variety of novel materials."
