CleanGraph announces new clean process for graphene production

CleanGraph, a chemical manufacturing company, has announced that it revealed a new process to transform graphite into graphene.

"Expanded graphite is a layered nanocarbon material, which is produced at industrial scale by oxidative intercalation and high-temperature expansion of natural graphite. CleanGraph is a novel proprietary process to chemically modify graphite into various forms of graphene in a faster, more productive and ecologically friendly way," said the Company's scientific team.

Integrated Graphene to fund scaling up of manufacturing ability

Integrated Graphene has announced it will be investing £8 million (around USD$9,496,000) to scale up its manufacturing process for the commercial production of graphene.

Integrated Graphene developed a commercially viable graphene manufacturing process that is currently scaled to high volumes. It is claimed that this process eliminates the scale-up challenges associated with CVD graphene and graphene powder. The Company is also designing manufacturing processes for companies to effectively bolt-on to existing lines, and it also has a team dedicated to supporting organizations to adapt graphene technologies for their products.
