CAP-XX and Ionic Industries to develop graphene-enhanced supercapacitors

CAP-XX, Australia-based manufacturer of thin-form supercapacitors and energy management systems, recently formed a joint venture for what it calls a "transformational new graphene material".

The deal is with Australia's Ionic Industries, which is developing new forms of graphene for a variety of markets, and involves the commercialization of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) for supercapacitors and other energy storage devices.

New graphene material shows promise for batteries and supercapacitors, IP bought by Sicona Battery Technologies

Researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), UOW and the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF), led by Professor David Officer and Distinguished Professor Gordon Wallace, have developed a new form of graphene, called Edge Functionalized Graphene (EFG), that is both highly conductive and processable.

EFG has reportedly been demonstrated to have high utility in energy storage (both for batteries and supercapacitors), as well as in composites for use as sensors, reinforcement materials or non-metallic conductors. Further applications in biomedical engineering are also under investigation.

Graphene-enhanced lead-acid batteries launched in China

Three companies in China recently launched graphene-enhanced lead-acid batteries, and they claim the graphene materials boost the performance of the batteries. While it is hard to verify the exact content and composition of these batteries, it seems as if graphene is finally starting to enter the battery market.

Tianneng battery group TNEH battery series photo

First up is Tianneng battery, which offers its TNEH Series Deep Cycle Black Gold Battery. The company says that the graphene expands the cycle life of the batteries and improves the performance at low temperatures. The TNEH series offers a 20% longer cycle life compared to the company's non-graphene batteries. The same battery also offers a 5% increase in capacity at low temperatures.
