Graphene Technologies' process synthesizes graphene atom by atom. The Company's proprietary process utilizes carbon dioxide, a widely available low-cost feedstock, and a sequence of proprietary recyclable materials and process steps to synthesize single to few layer graphene. GT's graphene synthesis process is controlled to meet product specifications for purity and character. The Company, with partners skilled in the art, can functionalize graphene product to meet various applications requirements.
GT Process Strategic Benefits
While the prospects for graphene are considered very promising, many project a challenge in producing graphene at industrial scale, quality and price. Carbon nanotubes were similarly advocated as a promising future material in the 1990's but production of carbon nanotubes failed to scale. Currently graphene is produced by research institutions and a few manufacturers. The most common process for producing graphene powders, exfoliation, utilizes highly crystalline graphite as a feedstock. In the exfoliation process, energy and chemicals are used to break the graphite down to small particles, a fraction of which can be separated as graphene. Exfoliation may face challenges including the difficulty in achieving sufficient volume of true graphene (one to few layer nano-scale sheets) as well as in removing impurities found in the graphite and the relative scarcity of the type of graphite feedstock required for generation of high quality graphene.
Unlike exfoliation, which breaks large particles down to nano-scale, the GT process rapidly synthesizes graphene from the bottom up, atom by atom. The process is inherently scalable and produces uniform, high quality, sub-500 nanometer, single to few layer graphene. Last, but certainly not least, the GT process utilizes carbon dioxide as its primary feedstock. Carbon dioxide is a widely available and low-cost carbon source. This eliminates the risk of developing and investing in high technologies that are dependent on scarce, politically risky or volatile natural resources, a risk that is of increasing concern among advanced technology companies.
Graphene Technologies plans to offer its graphene and intermediate products under the brand GraphenXTM. Presently, the Company is working with partners to develop graphene-based products and solutions based on the Company's graphene product. GT welcomes potential partners to contact the Company regarding collaboration.
GT provides experimental quantities of GraphenX product to independent researchers on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Jon Myers, CEO at Jon@GrapheneTechnologies.com for further information regarding the Company's graphene product and partnership opportunities.
Stay tuned for important announcements on partnerships and GraphenXTM products.
