New rGO-based material could improve energy storage devices and supercapacitors

Researchers from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU), along with collaborators from the University of Lille in France, have synthesized a new material, based on reduced graphene oxide (rGO), for energy storage devices and supercapacitors.

Researchers design rGO-based electrode materials for high-performance symmetric supercapacitor image

The rGO modification technique that involves the use of organic molecules, derivatives of hypervalent iodine, reportedly enabled acquiring a material that is capable of storing 1.7 times more electrical energy.

Zen Graphene Solutions and TreborRx announce nitrile glove agreement

Zen Graphene Solutions logo imageZen Graphene Solutions has announced an agreement reached on January 16th with TreborRx (Trebor) for application of its graphene-based coating on nitrile gloves sourced or produced by Trebor.

ZEN will provide Trebor with a distribution agreement for Canada, the USA and Mexico. Trebor agrees to use the coating on all gloves sold and will pay ZEN a royalty per glove coated, with a minimum first year guarantee of 100 million gloves.

An interview with planarTECH's CEO to discuss the company's future roadmap and plans

UK-based planarTECH has concluded a successful equity crowdfunding campaign in 2020, as part of Graphene-Info's Graphene Crowdfunding Arena. We posted a post-campaign interview with the company's CEO, J. Patrick Frantz back in June 2020. We thought it was time to get an update as things are moving fast for the company.

Patrick Frantz - planarTECH's CEO with the graphene face mask

Hello Patrick! It's been over half a year since you concluded the successful crowdfunding campaign. What are your thoughts now regarding the process and the campaign?

The crowdfunding was definitely an interesting experience and we’re glad we did it. It is hard for us to say if our experience was normal or not due to our campaign being launched at the beginning of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the end, however, we did reach our stated goal, though we didn’t get quite enough funding to do the things we really want to do. As a result, we're still considering bringing on new investment, and for this round we are looking at more traditional fundraising methods (strategic partners, etc.).

Applied Graphene Materials notes graphene powder approval from EU regulator

Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) has noted that the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) has approved a volume threshold of 1 to 10 tonnes for graphene powder usage per annum for graphene products supplied by the Graphene REACH registration consortium, of which the company is a member.

AGM said the approval from the regulator represented a “major milestone” for the graphene industry and will enable members of the consortium to supply quantities of graphene materials in volume.

Ionic Industries announces successful capital raising

Ionic Industries logoIonic Industries has announced a successful fund raising of over AUD$2 million (around USD$1.55 million) through a capital raising with Melbourne Capital Limited.

The funds will be used for a range of functions in support of Ionic's ongoing supercapacitor technology development and scaled-up manufacturing, including: intermediate scale up equipment, ongoing research, commercial negotiations, and more.
