Graphene ESD logoLomiko Metals recently announced forming a new graphene-related venture called Graphene Energy Storage Devices (Graphene ESD Corp.) to commercialize their energy storage technology. Now, Lomiko has announced the signing of a research agreement between Graphene ESD and Stony Brook University.

Graphene ESD Corp. will partner with the SBU Center for Advanced Sensor Technologies (Sensor CAT) to develop new supercapacitors designed for energy storage. The device will be designed as a versatile energy storage solution for electronics, electric vehicles and electric grid. SBU will leverage its experience in electrochemistry and will be responsible for the design of the electrode and the electrolyte formulation. The Graphene ESD team will work on device assembly and testing.

Initially, Graphene ESD Corp. will provide $50,000 in cash funding to the SUNY Research Foundation which will host research at its Sensor CAT facilities on SBU campus in Stony Brook, NY.
