The latest SER graphene news:
Strategic Energy Resources (SER) signed a jointly-funded research agreement with Monash Universtiy to develop a bench-scale facility for graphene production. Monash and Graphitech (SER's wholly owned subsidiary) will fund this project, with Monash contributing $100,000.
SER expects that they will start the setup in November 2014, and it will take about 3 months to fully set-up and test it. Graphitech will retain ownership of the facility, with Monash responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the facility. Initial batches of graphene production will be in the range of 1 kilogram to 2 kilogram per day.
Last month Australia's Strategic Energy Resources (SER) announced that it will focus on graphene-related investments, disclosing that it has an alliance with Monash University and an exclusive license agreement on the energy storage graphene technologies.
Today it was announced that SER and Monash University have been awarded a second ARC Linkage Grant for graphene-based research. The three-year project will cost $375,000 (probably AUD, which translates to $350,000 USD). The ARC will fund $255,000 and the rest will be funded by SER. The project (titled “Green Manufacturing of Graphene from Indigenous Natural Graphite and Graphene-based Nanofiltration Membranes”) aims to establish a green chemical route for transforming graphites fines into graphene.
Australia's Strategic Energy Resources (SER) announced that the company resolved to focus on graphene-related investments. SER already have an alliance with Monash University and an exclusive license agreement with the University on the energy storage graphene technologies. Using Monash's technology, SER formed a new company called Graphitech to handle all commercial and IP activities resulting from Monash's technology.
