Trane Technologies launches graphene-enhanced air purification system for public buses

Trane Technologies’ Thermo King brand has launched a new graphene-based air purification solution for buses that continuously purifies the air while the bus is in operation.

Thermo King says its Air Purification Solution has been independently tested and proven to be 98 percent effective in deactivating certain viruses, including a surrogate for the virus that causes COVID-19.

NanoXplore and Martinrea International form VoltaXplore for graphene EV batteries

Graphene producer NanoXplore and its partner, Martinrea International, have announced a joint venture, VoltaXplore Inc., formed to develop electric vehicle (EV) batteries enhanced with graphene.

A VoltaXplore demonstration facility is scheduled to be opened in Montreal, Canada, within the next year for the development and production of EV batteries enhanced with graphene. The Companies stated that a successful demonstration of improved battery performance using graphene, along with positive feedback from customers, will support the business case for the construction of a battery production facility in Canada.

Haydale awarded APC funding to develop graphene-enhanced hydrogen fuel cell tanks

Haydale has announced that it has been awarded funding of £138,549 (around USD$192,290) to develop hydrogen fuel cell tanks by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC).

To support the future of green automotive manufacturing and accelerate the UK's transition to net- zero emission vehicles, the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) has guided £9.4 million in public funding to 22 feasibility studies looking to scale up the industrialization of low-carbon emission vehicle technologies.

Applied Graphene Materials’ GNPs incorporated into two newly-launched automotive products

Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) has announced that its customer, Constellation Chemicals, has launched two new sealants in its car detailing product range enhanced with AGM’s graphene nanoplatelet technology.

The two products, Parallax, a graphene-enhanced ceramic sealant and Gravity, a graphene-enhanced snow sealant, launch after research and testing by Constellation Chemicals. The growing UK-based manufacturer of car care products claims that they offer performance enhancements such as hydrophobicity, chemical resistance to acid rain, road salt and bird lye and produce excellent durability, gloss, water repellence and beading.

Paragraf launches advanced graphene-based Hall Effect sensor for mapping of battery cells

UK-based Paragraf has announced a new graphene Hall Effect sensor, said to be ideally suited to battery applications, such as the electric vehicle (EV) sector.

Paragraf's newly launched Hall Effect sensors based on graphene image

The graphene GHS01AT Hall Effect sensor is optimized for use in relatively low field environments and normal ambient temperatures. Bringing the magnetic field measurement resolution towards that of more complex magnetic sensors, yet with the small size and ease of use of a Hall sensor, it can address monitoring tasks that conventional technologies simply cannot provide an effective solution for.
