Zen Graphene Solutions Ltd. (TSXV: ZEN) (OCT Pink: ZENYF) ("ZEN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a three year lease with an option for another 3 years on 25,680 square feet of newly built B.1 industrial zoning space in Guelph, Ontario. The new space will become ZEN's manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters. Engineering work plus the purchase of the equipment required to produce ZEN's graphene-based viricidal coating at commercial scale is ongoing. The company expects to begin initial production in Q4 2020 for incorporation into masks, other PPE and for HVAC filters and prefilters.

In order to assist in the decision to lease the new facility, ZEN engaged the services of ERM Consultants Canada Ltd. (ERM) on October 5, 2020, to complete a review of environmental permits and requirements for consideration in selecting a site for the commercial scale manufacturing operations and to understand what actions should be considered in the development plan. The ERM Report was carefully reviewed and discussed by the ZEN team as part of its decision to move forward with the lease of 1123 York Road.

On November 9, 2020, ZEN and Trebor Rx Corp. (Trebor) announced that they had signed a binding letter of intent that includes the initial purchase of ZEN's patent pending graphene-based viricidal coating for a minimum of 100 million masks/filters with pricing of these mask/filters being variable and based on a number of factors. This initial minimum order represents a small percentage of Trebor's planned capacity for 2021, with Trebor targeting but not required to have ZEN's viricidal coating on all its production.

ZEN's CEO, Francis Dube, commented, "Our team is moving at a very rapid pace to implement our business plan and secure a new manufacturing facility permitting ZEN to bring its innovative product to market on a timely basis. This facility will give us the scale we need for our current obligations with Trebor and for the demand we expect to have in the future."

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.

HydroGraph Clean Power Completes Oversubscribed $4.2 Million Financing to Accelerate Commercial Sales

HydroGraph Clean Power Completes Oversubscribed $4.2 Million Financing to Accelerate Commercial Sales

HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (CSE: HG.CN) (" HydroGraph " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement ‎(the " Private Placement ") of units of the Company (the " Units "), pursuant to which the Company issued 35,151,666 Units at a price of $0.12 per Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,218,199.96.

HydroGraph will use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to increase commercial scale ‎production, continue to invest in business development teams, and develop and advance ‎application partnerships.‎ In particular, the proceeds will provide capital to complete the build out of the Company's modular commercial production cell for fractal graphene, the flagship product, that will produce 1 gram per second. Expected to be complete by 4Q 2022, the difference in output will be orders of magnitude higher than current production. The funding will also initiate the development of the reactive graphene commercial production unit with a 200 kg per day capacity—compared to previously 2-4 kg per day—to be complete in 2023.

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?”
