First Graphene releases whitepaper

Earlier today, First Graphene released a whitepaper on its patented Hydrodynamic Cavitation Process.

According to the company, the report confirmed the technology’s ability to convert petroleum feedstocks into products for clean energy storage and generation.

First Graphene’s research team successfully demonstrated that the novel cavitation technology could efficiently produce graphite materials in a single step process. According to the whitepaper, the only by-product of the process was “green” hydrogen.

First Graphene noted that high purity graphite is in demand for use in the production of battery anodes. The company predicts strong growth and highlighted the potential to evolve production to a commercial scale.

In addition to today’s announcement, First Graphene also announced a distribution agreement yesterday.

The agreement will allow Auckland-based company GtM Action to exclusively distribute First Graphene’s PureGRAPH products. GtM Action will also have the right to develop commercial opportunities for graphene technology.

According to First Graphene, the partnership with GtM Action is focused on extending the company’s sales reach and the awareness of graphene technology.

In addition to developing commercial opportunities in New Zealand, the company also aims to expose its PureGRAPH product to the concrete industry globally.
