Sri Lanka’s Ceylon Graphene Technologies increases production capacity for graphene-enhanced batteries

Ceylon Graphene Technologies (CGT), a Sri Lanka based startup company, is expanding its graphene production capacity as graphene-enhanced industrial batteries are about to hit the market, according to a report from an official.

CGT is a joint venture between Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC), a research body backed by the government, and private partners (Colombo-based LOLC group owns 85 percent of CGT and SLINTEC 15 percent). CGT has developed a technology to convert vein graphite into graphene.

Researchers capture images of atoms ‘swimming’ in liquid

Graphene scientists from The University of Manchester have created a novel ‘nano petri dish’ using two-dimensional (2D) materials to create a new method of observing how atoms move in liquid. The team, led by researchers based at the National Graphene Institute (NGI), used stacks of 2D materials including graphene to trap liquid in order to further understand how the presence of liquid changes the behavior of the solid.

Graphene scientists capture first images of atoms ‘swimming’ in liquid image

The researchers were able to capture images of single atoms ‘swimming’ in liquid for the first time. The findings could have widespread impact on the future development of green technologies such as hydrogen production.

CleanGraph announces new clean process for graphene production

CleanGraph, a chemical manufacturing company, has announced that it revealed a new process to transform graphite into graphene.

"Expanded graphite is a layered nanocarbon material, which is produced at industrial scale by oxidative intercalation and high-temperature expansion of natural graphite. CleanGraph is a novel proprietary process to chemically modify graphite into various forms of graphene in a faster, more productive and ecologically friendly way," said the Company's scientific team.

Appear Inc. launches new graphene battery packs

Appear Inc. has announced the launch of its high-performance, fast-charge, longer-lasting battery packs for electric vehicles. Appear's graphene battery packs can be fully charged in less than 60 minutes. Appear's latest battery cells offer higher capacity, increased safety and an industry-leading 3C fast charge capability.

Appear Graphene Li-Ion batteries are reportedly safer, offer fast charge (up to 3C) and have a longer cycle life (1000 cycles) than traditional Li-Ion batteries. The distinctive batteries also have higher discharge capacity (up to 15C), which enables bikes to have rapid acceleration, steep climb/higher torque and race mode in sport bikes.

Levidian and Adamant to collaborate on development of graphene-enhanced composite materials

Levidian Nanosystems and Adamant Composites Limited have signed a joint development agreement (JDA) to collaborate on enhancing composite materials with Levidian’s unique graphene.

Over the next three years, the two companies will work together to incorporate Levidian’s sustainable graphene in a range of composite materials. Levidian uses plasma chemistry to crack methane into hydrogen and graphene. This process means their graphene has no batch-to-batch variation, a very small number of layers, and a positive environmental impact. The addition of graphene to composite materials and components will lead to improved process times while augmenting physical properties.

Skeleton Technologies announces new supercapacitor plant near Leipzig

Estonia-based Skeleton Technologies has announced that it is building Europe’s largest supercapacitor production facility in Saxony with the support of Siemens. Skeleton Technologies is investing 220 million euros in the new production facility in Markranstädt, near Leipzig in Saxony.

According to the company, 100 million euros will be invested in production and 120 million euros in development and research as well as in a future ramp-up of production. In the future, 12 million supercapacitors are to be manufactured annually in Markranstädt. The start of production is planned for 2024.

Researchers develop new process for low-cost graphene production

A team of researchers from the Institute for Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), Instituto Superior Técnico, have reported a new process to fabricate free-standing graphene using plasma technology, at much lower production cost than the other existing market solutions.

The invention was granted the first international patent on the “Process, reactor and system for fabrication of free-standing two-dimensional nanostructures using plasma technology” (ref. US 11254575B2), by the US Patent Office.

Paragraf announces Innovate UK grant to develop graphene-based diagnostic tool

Paragraf has announced its plan to develop a new generation of graphene-based, in-vitro diagnostic products that will give results within a few minutes.

The Company is starting a two-year program to develop a proof-of-concept combined PCT (procalcitonin) and CRP (C-reactive protein) test, on a single panel. This collaboration utilizes a GBP £550,000 (around USD$658,000) Biomedical Catalyst grant award from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.
