2018 was a busy year for the graphene industry, and here are our top companies for 2018 - ranked by the number of posts written about them on graphene-info.
While these figures are not of any official status, they do go a certain distance in assessing the market and its major players in 2018.
NanoXplore has announced its plans for a private placement for gross proceeds of approximately CAD$30 million (around USD $22.3 million).
NanoXplore has also announced that it has entered into an updated Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Martinrea International, which is expected to further develop the commercial relationships between the companies. The MOU provides for increased collaborations between NanoXplore and Martinrea, including commitments by NanoXplore to provide graphene to Martinrea and to assist in the development of graphene-related products and technologies. Martinrea will also assist NanoXplore in the future development of its operations. Furthermore, Martinrea will subscribe for approximately $15 million as part of the Equity Offering. After giving effect to the Equity Offering, Martinrea is expected to own approximately 16% of the issued and outstanding common shares of NanoXplore.
A new consortium (called the Graphene REACH registration consortium) was launched in 2017 to handle REACH graphene registration in the EU. The consortium members, The Sixth Element Material Technology, NanoXplore and Applied Graphene Materials announced that the joint registration dossiers for graphene and graphene oxide have been submitted to the ECHA.
The consortium is also preparing a JRD for reduced graphene oxide, and hopes to submit it before the end of 2018. The consortium issues a callout for companies (whether graphene producers or importers) to join the consortium or buy a letter of access to the new registrations.
NanoXplore announces positive feasibility study for its 10,000 metric ton/year graphene production plant
Canada-based NanoXplore recently announced a positive feasibility study for its graphene production plant. The company said that the independent feasibility study highlighted several improvement as compared to the project’s preliminary economic assessment (PEA).
NanoXplore is planning to build a 10,000 metric ton/year graphene production plan, which is currently the largest in the world. NanoXplore plans to offer graphene for $10/kg (USD$8/kg) starting from Jan 2020 under the GrapheneBlack brand.
NanoXplore, manufacturer and supplier of high-volume graphene powder for use in industrial markets, has announced that it acquired Sigma Industries in a deal that included cash and stock components. The cash component is approximately CAD$9 million (around $6.8 million USD) and the stock value is approximately CAD$9.8 million (almost $7.5 million USD).
Sigma Industries is a manufacturing company specializing in the manufacture of composite products, with two operating subsidiaries and 275 employees. It operates in the markets for heavy trucks, buses, public transit, machinery and wind energy. Sigma sells its products to original equipment manufacturers and distributors in the United States, Canada and Europe.
