HydroGraph Clean Power has announced that it is targeting Q3 2022 for commercial scale production at its Manhattan, KS manufacturing plant. To do this, the Company will be leveraging manufacturing technology developed at Kansas State University and kicking off a five-year plant expansion and job creation plan for the Manhattan region.
HydroGraph technology manufactures graphene and other materials, using its technology — the Hyperion detonation system — that is reportedly "ideal for commercial scale: compact and modular, with the small footprint allowing for deployment virtually anywhere". The Company’s initial go-to-market product of graphene, with hydrogen production process in development, marks the beginning for a platform of products in the advanced materials and energy spaces.
Ranjith Divigalpitiya, chief science officer of HydroGraph, said locating the manufacturing close to the R&D was a strategic choice. “The close proximity of our manufacturing facility to our research partners at Kansas State University will help us maintain our competitive advantage with a virtuous cycle between our commercial production and continuing R&D.”
