Black Swan Graphene partners with Graphene Composites on graphene-enhanced ballistic protection technology

Black Swan Graphene has announced it has entered into a commercial partnership with Graphene Composites (GC). The Companies will aim to incorporate Black Swan's graphene in the fabrication of GC Shield, a patented ballistic protection technology ("GC Shields"). 

The Company highlighted that GC Shields, with its patented graphene-aerogel composite, have unique force dispersion capabilities which protect users from multiple shots, stacked rounds, and edge impacts while maintaining minimum back face deformation. They are among the strongest, lightest, and most resilient ballistic shields on the market for the law enforcement and defense sectors, according to Black Swan.

Sparc Technologies and 29Metals to test Sparc's Ecosparc graphene coatings

Sparc Technologies has announced the execution of a binding agreement (Trial Agreement) with Golden Grove Operations, a wholly owned subsidiary of 29Metals, an Australian miner of base and precious metals.

The Trial Agreement details the terms and conditions under which Sparc and 29Metals will conduct a collaborative field trial involving the application of an ecosparc-enhanced coating on steel processing plant infrastructure at the Golden Grove mine site in Western Australia. Ecosparc is the Company's flagship graphene based additive product.

Avanzare and Tecnalia collaborate on the European Sunshine project to develop pioneering Safe and Sustainable by Design (SSbD) strategies for graphene production

Avanzare and Tecnalia are working together to develop a digital twin comprising various sensors installed along an extraction cabin, aimed at mitigating operator exposure to graphene particles. The goal is to develop risk control strategies in industrial processes, optimizing sensor use to reduce energy consumption and maintain a particle-free environment, thus minimizing energy use.

These sensors gather data on nanoparticle presence in the environment within one of the cabins used in graphene materials production and transmit it to a server, where it is depicted in graphs. This visual representation allows for monitoring nanoparticle concentration and preventing their presence in the environment. Depending on extraction regulation, particles can be effectively removed; without extraction, nanoparticles accumulate, posing health risks to operators. Thus, these sensors enable monitoring of nanoparticle exposure. If concentrations become too high, activating extraction systems ensures a safe environment. The system also predicts accidental emissions to prevent them.

Rimere's graphene to be tested in Holliday Rock's concrete

Rimere, a climate solutions company with proprietary plasma technology, and Holliday Rock, a leading producer of concrete and asphalt in California, have announced a new co-development agreement for Rimere’s graphene to be tested in Holliday Rock’s concrete applications.

The development and testing partnership will see Rimere's graphene tested in Holliday Rock’s concrete for potential incorporation into production. The trial is structured to determine the significance the combination has to enhance concrete’s properties in terms of strength, elasticity, shrinkage, shielding, durability, and penetration.

iGii (formerly Integrated Graphene) secures investment of over $11 million

iGii, formerly Integrated Graphene, has announced it has raised £8.8 million (over USD$11.7 million) in new funding to accelerate growth. iGii will use the funds to accelerate customer projects, increase its manufacturing capacity, and deepen its research and development to explore further applications of its patented Gii material. iGii plans to expand its facilities and continue creating highly skilled local jobs.

The funding round was led by a £4 million injection from the Scottish National Investment Bank, with a further £4.8 million coming from existing iGii shareholders Archangel Investors and Par Equity, both of which first invested in the business in 2020.

Graphene-Info releases a new edition of its Graphene Investment Guide

Today we published a new edition of our Graphene Investment Guide, with all the latest information and financial updates from public graphene companies. This is still a challenging time for many graphene companies - and also for graphene investors. Almost all the 23 public graphene companies we track show their share price decline in the past year. 

It is a time of consolidation in the industry - and investors should be careful when looking at early stage graphene companies. Most graphene companies struggle to generate meaningful revenues, and we expect consolidation and liquidation to continue in the next few years.

The Graphene Investment Guide includes:

  • An introduction to graphene
  • An overview of graphene's most exciting applications
  • An analysis of graphene's potential
  • Market forecasts from leading analysts
  • Detailed descriptions and financials of all public graphene companies
  • Over 80 financial reports and company presentations (premium edition only)
  • Graphene-Info's own investment thesis and action plan

Any technology-driven investor that wishes to stay current on the most promising new nanotechnology should look into this report. The report includes extensive data and information needed to launch a successful strategic graphene investment portfolio.
