Gerdau Graphene launches 'NanoCORR Shield' graphene-enhanced anti-corrosion additive for solvent-based paints

Gerdau Graphene has announced the availability of NanoCORR Shield, the newest product from its G2D NanoCORR line of anti-corrosion paints and coatings additives. Developed with Gerdau Graphene's exclusive G2D technology, NanoCORR Shield is a graphene-enhanced chemical additive designed to increase the corrosion resistance of solvent-based paints and coatings. NanoCORR Shield has demonstrated a 30-70% increase in corrosion resistance when subjected to salt spray testing.

The addition of a small amount of specially-developed graphene into paints and coatings allows for an increase in the barrier effect against corrosive elements such as water, oxygen, and chlorides. In addition, NanoCORR reduces paint consumption by reducing the nominal thickness of the coating while maintaining the paint or coatings' other characteristics and performance properties.

Black Semiconductor secures €254.4 million in funding

German semiconductor startup, Black Semiconductor, has secured EUR 254.4 million (around USD$275,900,000) in funding to launch graphene-enhanced semiconductor technology in Europe. With the funding, the company says that it is on track to realize the first phase of its vision – advancing a new generation of chip technology from research to mass production by 2031.

The Company has secured EUR 228.7 million (around USD$248,000,000) in public funding from the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia over the next 7 years under the IPCEI ME/CT2 program.

Levidian and Hexla to work together to bring climate technology to Worthy Farm

British climate tech firm Levidian and clean hydrogen developer Hexla have joined forces to bring Levidian’s LOOP technology to Worthy Farm in Somerset in a "world first example of carbon negative hydrogen production from biomethane", as the Companies described it.  

Home to the Glastonbury Festival, Worthy Farm currently produces power using an anaerobic digestion plant that turns tens of thousands of tonnes of cow slurry and waste silage into energy. The LOOP technology will allow the farm to capture the carbon from some of the biomethane produced as part of this process and turn it into graphene and clean hydrogen, which will be used to generate electricity through the existing combined heat and power plant.

Researchers develop new approach for controlling thermal emission

Researchers from the University of Manchester, The Pennsylvania State University, Koç University and Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have tackled the challenge of control of thermal radiation, demonstrating a new topology-based approach.

The team explained that conventional approaches to tailoring thermal emission using metamaterials are hampered both by the limited spatial resolution of the required subwavelength material structures and by the materials’ strong absorption in the infrared. In their recent work, the scientists developed an approach based on the concept of topology: by changing a single parameter of a multilayer coating, they were able to control the reflection topology of a surface, with the critical point of zero reflection being topologically protected.

Versarien's graphene refocus seems to bear fruit with narrowed losses

Versarien’s strategic realignment to core graphene technology reportedly resulted in narrowed losses and an improved cash position in the six months up to 31 March. 

Operational highlights in the period included agreement with MCK Tech in Korea for the exclusive license of five CVD patents. Versarien also sold its South Korean plant and equipment to MCK Tech for £604,000. The Company secured a know-how and manufacturing license agreement with Montana Quimica LTDA, a Brazilian multinational focused on paints and wood finishing products. Additionally, Versarien entered into a mutual letter of commitment to support Building for Humanity in providing 3D concrete printed materials for social housing in Accrington.
