First Graphene secures Innovate UK funding for supercapacitor research

Last month, First Graphene (FGR) announced a milestone in its program to develop high performing supercapacitor materials. Now, the Company announced it has been awarded funding from Innovate UK EDGE to progress development work on its supercapacitor graphene hybrid materials with a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) based in the United Kingdom.

The Innovate EDGE fund supports high-growth small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to scale up and innovate, working alongside the UK’s “RTO and Catapult Network”. The Company will engage with world-leading experts at the Energy Innovation Centre based at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) – part of the Catapult Network.

First Graphene announces milestone on supercapacitor materials

First Graphene (FGR) has announced that it has reached a milestone on its program to develop high performing supercapacitor materials. FGR’s recent work has been focused on the development of an optimized bill of materials for a supercapacitor to deliver high energy and power densities.

First Graphene has now announced that, in a standard test cell, its product PureGRAPH hybrid active materials outperform leading activated carbon materials over 100 cycles. The PureGRAPH materials have a specific capacitance of 140 farads per gram (f/g) while activated carbon cells typically have a specific capacitance of 35 f/g. FGR said this shows that PureGRAPH hybrid active materials can be formulated into an electrode slurry for use in device manufacture.



First Graphene receives increased commitment from newGen Group

First Graphene (FGR) has announced that it has signed a Deed of Variation with newGen Group for the supply of its PureGRAPH product line for inclusion into the newGen ArmourGRAPH protective products for the mining industry.

newGen recently launched its ArmourGRAPH protective mining wear liners and elastomeric coatings, based on successful trials whereby a six-fold extension of wear protection was documented. Following successful trials, newGen has now moved to a production phase.

Graphene-enhanced pools by Aquatic Leisure Technologies hit the market

Aquatic Leisure Technologies (ALT) recently announced the world’s first commercial range of graphene-enhanced GFRP swimming pools. This follows June 2020's announcement of First Graphene (FGR) entering an agreement with Aquatic Leisure Technologies to supply PureGRAPH products for development of pool innovations.

Graphene Nano-Tech pools, which ALT claims are lighter, stronger and more durable than traditional GFRP pools, are manufactured using a process that combines graphene-infused resin with traditional GFRP fabrication.
