GrapheneCA announced Friday that its second graphene production line in Brooklyn is now fully operational.
It’s a major milestone that marks a tenfold leap in GrapheneCA’s production power of the new wonder material that is more solid than steel and a better conductor than copper.
As its name indicates, graphene is extracted from graphite, the material used in pencils. Like graphite, graphene is entirely composed of carbon atoms and 1 millimeter of graphite contains some 3 million layers of graphene. Whereas graphite is a three-dimensional crystalline arrangement, graphene is a two-dimensional crystal only an atom thick.
Graphene has the potential to transform a range of sectors such as electronics, energy, health and construction.
Eager to meet the demands of an ever-expanding market for its line of commercial-grade graphene and graphene-based products, GrapheneCA’s researchers have been hard at work ensuring its Brooklyn production facility scaled with a second-generation production system.
“The control we have in manufacturing with our new production line is very impressive,” said Dr Sergey Voskresensky, head of R&D at GrapheneCA’s Brooklyn-based production facility. “In just 90 days, we were able to develop a much more advanced system that will enable us to meet the growing demand from a wide variety of industries with real efficiency.”
It is noteworthy that GrapheneCA’s production technology uses only water, natural graphite and energy. “The new technology lets us preserve graphene, ship it with high efficiency and then dispense it on location — in production ready pristine condition — in significant quantities on demand.”
Voskresensky said that in 2019, the company will expand its catalog and continue to announce new graphene products and technology.
Headquartered in New York, Nano Graphene Inc, doing business as GrapheneCA, is a privately owned, commercial-scale graphene and graphene-based materials producer and supplier. It began proprietary production of graphene in July 2017 and integrates graphene into real-world applications through the use of its own highly effective, scalable and environmentally friendly production process. Its low-cost manufacturing process is geared towards meeting industrial demand.
