At one atom thin, graphene is lighter and stronger than steel, more electrically conductive than copper or silver, and is much sought after for its unique ability to store either hydrogen or electrons. In fact, its discovery in 2004 led to a 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. In short, this is an impressive natural material derived from crystalline graphite with applications in medicine, electronics, and energy storage, power generation (such as fuel cells or solar cells), aerospace, computer chips, next-generation transportation, construction materials – and more. So why is this nanomaterial not where it needs to be? Simply because it is expensive to produce, largely owing to the high temperatures needed to produce it. Grafoid has developed a novel low-cost, environmentally sustainable method that produces high-quality MesoGraf™ graphene at room temperature, enabling a 90 percent reduction in the amount of energy used as compared to the market dominant method. Furthermore, the process optimizes the reuse of reagents with the net reduction in wastewater production.
