Saint Jean Carbon, a company engaged in the development of natural graphite properties and related carbon products, has announced that it has received another grant from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), In addition to the grant received in October 2015.
The funds will be used to further the material knowledge of the Saint Jean Carbon ferromagnetic graphene. This research is the next step in the development of understanding where the material can be used in future applications, and provides a further understanding of the unique properties contained in the ferromagnetic graphene. The company states that the funds provide it with a very special opportunity to work with top universities like Western University, and their bioengineering team.
The company is presently working in two specific development areas: material engineering for lithium-ion batteries and ferromagnetic graphene applications. The Company believes that both development areas offer a future with endless possibilities, as the need for specialized materials will be needed for newer technologies across many industries.
