Sparc Technologies (SPN) has announced kicking off the construction of a modular and scalable manufacturing facility for graphene-based additive products in Adelaide. The company said that commissioning was expected within the first quarter of 2023.
This facility will enable the production of commercial quantities of graphene-based additives and will accommodate large-scale manufacturing to meet customer demand.
“We are pleased to advise that all equipment for the graphene-based additives manufacturing facility has been delivered to site and construction is now underway,” Sparc Technologies Managing Director Mike Bartels said. “This will enable Sparc to supply our global customer base with commercial quantities of ecosparc product for the coatings and composites markets.
“By improving coatings performance, the frequency of asset maintenance can be significantly reduced, which subsequently serves to reduce costs and importantly the environmental footprint associated with such activities.”
