DAYTON, OHIO, November 15, 2019 – Global Graphene Group (G3) and a major Taiwan-based manufacturer have signed a joint development agreement (JDA) to incorporate graphene-enhanced materials into polyetheretherketone (PEEK)-based products for the semiconductor industry in portions of Asia.
DAYTON, OHIO, November 12, 2019 – Global Graphene Group (G3) continues its leadership in the graphene industry by joining the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) graphene consortium. A member of G3’s executive team will represent the company in Frankfurt, Germany, at the November 14 REACH consortium meeting.
Global Graphene Group (G3) COO John Davis recently participated in an Executive Roundtable hosted by the Dayton Business Journal. Leaders from Dayton area manufacturers met to discuss challenges and trends in their industries. A series of articles will be published from the meeting. The first article focused on the impact the economy has on manufacturers and the outlook going into 2020 and beyond. Davis offered that Global Graphene Group forecasts continued growth in 2020, noting that "we're seeing a lot of opportunity.”
DAYTON, OHIO, November 5, 2019 – Intellectual property is at the core of Global Graphene Group, Inc.’s success as a leader in the graphene industry. Global Graphene Group (G3) drives innovation in graphene manufacturing processes, from filing the first patent on graphene in 2002 to today’s expansive IP portfolio of 430 U.S. patents and 150 international patents and counting. Kurt Jacobs, an Intellectual Property Engineer at G3, recently passed the U.S.P.T.O Registration exam, commonly known as the patent bar. This will enable him to practice in patent cases before the Patent and Trademark Office. The patent bar is a difficult exam, with a pass rate of 47.2% in 2018*. Jacobs will now be able to file and prosecute patent applications, and draft patent applications for the company.
Global Graphene Group welcomed 16 members of the Dayton Engineers’ Club’s Barn Gang to our Dayton facilities yesterday afternoon. The Barn Gang is comprised of retired engineers, and they meet regularly to tour area companies. G3’s John Davis, Dr. Aruna Zhamu and Stuart Blair presented to the group about what graphene is, it’s trajectory in commercialization and Global Graphene Group at a high level.
Graphene is a two-dimensional nanomaterial with the highest thermal conductivity value* among all known materials. G3’s heat spreader, AT1500, offers a significant performance improvements over current heat spreading products such as PGS (Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet). Our IP-protected single-layer graphene technology enables us to produce a range of thicknesses from 20um-100um for different heat dissipation requirements. This range can also maximize your heat conduction flux capacity in confined and limited spaces.
For many, the change of seasons isn’t just about weather and longer days, but a change in sports. One of our favorites at G3 is lacrosse, with teams from high school to major league kicking off in the spring. G3 recently teamed with @ECDLacrosse in the development of material for their Rebel +Graphene heads, which were released in a limited edition.
We are all familiar with lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). They power everything from smart phones, laptops, medical devices, electric vehicles and even grid storage. With major companies like CATL, Northvolt, and Tesla currently scaling up their production of LiBs, it is permissible if you’ve forgotten that LiBs are in fact a relatively mature technology. To recap, a typical lithium-ion battery uses carbon (graphite) as an negative electrode and lithium-metal oxide (e.g., NCA, NCM, LCO) as a positive electrode. Using these materials, a LiB’s energy density tops out around 700 Wh/L. Companies are seeking higher energy for space-limited applications, especially electric vehicles, and thus tinkering with the materials inside traditional LiBs to do so. The question bears asking: What then, exactly, are they doing? What comes after LiBs?
