Is Tesla Making a Graphene Battery?

The worldwide popularity of Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model 3 sedan has also been good news for battery metals such as lithium, graphite and cobalt.

Tesla has generated a lot of consumer interest with its Model 3, a US$40,000 car that it believes will help make electric vehicles (EVs) available to the masses. Today, the Model 3 is the world’s best-selling plug-in EV model, according to Statista, with worldwide unit sales of more than 500,000 in 2020.

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 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 that are bonded together in different ways. For instance, graphite consists of carbon atoms bonded together in sheets of a hexagonal lattice, while graphene is made up of a single sheet of graphite.

Investing in Graphene Companies

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 graphene market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 38.7 percent between 2020 and 2027 to reach US$1.08 billion by 2027. The firm says that revenue for electronic applications of graphene will be a major contributor to that growth.

ZEN Graphene Solutions Provides Update on Graphene-Based Coating and Filtration Flow Rates

Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd. (TSXV: ZEN) (OTC Pink: ZENYF) ("ZEN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the following related to its proprietary, graphene-based coating that is 99.9% effective against aerobic bacteria (gram-positive and gram-negative), fungal and viral activity, including COVID-19:

  • Confirmation from a major Canadian Certification company that filter material flow rates and pressure drop were not affected by the application of the coating
  • Confirmation from The BIG-nano Corporation (BIG-nano) that treated mask material achieved excellent dispersion and coverage, and the coating did not block fiber pores
  • Both findings help validate that ZEN's coating does not inhibit breathability in polypropylene mask material or flow rates in air filtration media

Greg Fenton, ZEN CEO, commented: "Demonstrating that the application of our coating on both filtration and mask materials does not negatively affect the air flow or breathability is another meaningful step towards realizing the full potential of our novel graphene-based solutions. We believe the personal protective equipment (PPE) and air filtration markets have enormous potential for our company as we develop vital tools in our collective fight against pathogens, like SARS-CoV-2."
