Archer Exploration Limited recently announced a Collaboration Agreement with Flex-G (FlexeGRAPH) to jointly develop graphite and graphene based advanced materials for the thermal management of electric vehicle batteries, internal combustion engines, and high-performance computing systems.
The agreement includes advanced materials development, processing, evaluation and characterization, and in particular focuses on the development of thermal management applications using materials from AXE’s Campoona project.
The main objective in brokering the deal is to commercially translate products and patents in areas relating to high volume and high value graphite-to-graphene development within the ‘reliable energy’ market.
As part of the joint work, AXE and FlexeGRAPH will prototype materials using Campoona graphite, and essentially develop new products to be sold through the Carbon Allotropes Marketplace.
Archer CEO Mohammad Choucair commented: “This strategic relationship with FlexeGRAPH provides an opportunity for us to integrate our graphite materials with a clear view downstream connecting the sourcing, processing and use of graphite and graphene in high value systems including electrified vehicles and high-power computing.
“Together with FlexeGRAPH we have an opportunity to convert our high-volume Campoona graphite to high-value graphene materials that can impact the automotive and computing industries where thermal management and reliable energy is critical to their widespread use,” he said.
