Haydale Graphene Industries Plc is the holding company for Haydale Limited, Haydale Composite Solutions Limited and Haydale Technologies (Korea) Co., Limited.
Haydale Limited, housed in a purpose built facility for processing and handling nano-materials with an R&D laboratory, is facilitating the application of graphenes and other nano-materials in fields such as inks, sensors, energy storage, photovoltaics, composites, paints and coatings. Haydale has developed a patented proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise graphene and other nanomaterials.
Haydale Composite Solutions Limited (HCS) specialises in the design, development and commercialisation of advanced polymer composite materials on a global basis.
Haydale Technologies (Korea) Co., Ltd, is located in Seoul. This is currently a sales and marketing office managing companies Haydale are working with and who are sampling Haydale functionalised materials.
Haydale supplies graphene enhanced materials direct to customers and through their marketing and distribution partners InVentures (USA) and planarTECH (Far East). R&D materials are available through INSCX™ and the specialist web based supplier, Goodfellow.
The latest Haydale graphene news:
The graphene industry seems to be flourishing, at least when looking at the valuations of public companies. As we reported earlier this year, graphene stocks have risen nicely towards the end of 2020, and the trend continues in 2021 for most companies.
The total market value of graphene companies now reaches $1.8 billion USD for the 13 leading graphene public companies we track. It is important to note that not all this value is directly related to graphene - some of the companies have other activities, mainly graphite mining and supply. But for all these companies, graphene is a major part of the business, and most of the companies are pure-play graphene companies.
Haydale has announced that it has been awarded funding of £138,549 (around USD$192,290) to develop hydrogen fuel cell tanks by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC).
To support the future of green automotive manufacturing and accelerate the UK's transition to net- zero emission vehicles, the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has guided £9.4 million in public funding to 22 feasibility studies looking to scale up the industrialization of low-carbon emission vehicle technologies.
Haydale has announced that it has partnered with U.S-based 401 Tech Bridge to provide a HT200 Plasma Reactor and advanced materials support for their innovation ecosystem.
The HT200 Plasma Reactor will be utilized in the 401 Tech Bridge Advanced Materials and Technology Center, managed by the University of Rhode Island (URI), to support material commercialization efforts of Graphene Composites and other local composites and textiles-based businesses. This adds to 401 Tech Bridge's capability supporting its ambition to accelerate the adoption of new materials and support companies' efforts in developing new products.
Haydale has announced that it has been awarded a £1.1 million loan facility by Innovate UK Loans Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of UK Research and Innovation.
Haydale, with the support of Innovate UK, is implementing its plan to expand its capacity to manufacture functionalized nanomaterials (including graphene) to meet growing demand. Haydale will be investing in a HT1400 plasma reactor and ancillary equipment to provide a facility to be able to increase production volume by at least eight-fold once fully optimized. The reactor will increase production at the Ammanford facility to an industrial level with capacity to functionalize over 30 TPA of graphene and other nanomaterials on a single shift pattern.
Haydale has announces its financial results for H1 FY2021 (which ended on December 2020 - revenues were £1.28 million, down 5% from last year, while operating loss was reduced by 34%. At the end of December 2020, Haydale had £1.88 in cash and equivalents.
Haydale says that even though the covid-19 pandemic impacted several of its key markets, the company observed greater interest from existing and new customers. The company anticipates that full FY2021 revenue will be in line with FY2020, while lower operating costs will lead to a reduced operating loss.
