Aluminum-ion Graphene Battery Progress Update
BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – TheNewswire – June 1st, 2021 – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSXV: GMG) (“GMG“or the”Company“) Is pleased to present to you the latest update of its graphene aluminum-ion battery technology (“G + AI battery”) Under development by the Company and the University of Queensland.
Since GMG’s market update on May 11, 2021 (“GMG Graphene Aluminum-Ion Battery Performance Data‘), The company appointed director Robbert de Weijer as the director of the G + AI battery project and tasked the company’s chief technology officer and graphene project leader with prioritizing the technical advancement of the G + AI battery. In addition, the company’s new COO and operations team are prioritizing the production of the particular graphene needed for the production of G + AI batteries.
These measures reflect GMG’s determination to respond positively to the many encouraging and varied requests the company has received regarding the technical and commercial application of G + AI batteries.
GMG CEO and Managing Director Craig Nicol said: “Over 80 inbound inquiries from around the world were received by the company from organizations seeking to explore potential applications in consumer electric vehicles, high performance cars, heavy vehicles, motorcycles, air travel, personal devices such than laptops and phones. , network attached storage and others. Several parties noted, inter alia, the potential high power density of graphene aluminum-ion batteries which allows faster charging; aluminum-ion graphene batteries are expected to be more environmentally friendly and can be produced without lithium and rare earths; that the performance of these batteries should be safer, with a much lower risk of fire; and finally that aluminum-ion graphene batteries should not require the complexity and weight of cooling systems required by lithium-ion battery technology. The Company is encouraged by this initial interest and will continue to provide regular updates regarding the performance and development of its graphene aluminum-ion batteries as research and development and commercial programs progress.
GMG is in the process of signing non-disclosure agreements with certain parties to allow confidential exchange of information as part of the assessment of a potential commercial relationship between the parties. In particular, the Company intends to determine whether it should engage these parties to help, among other things, define the battery specifications for the GMG pouch pack for certain applications.
As previously announced, GMG is looking to put into production commercial prototypes of button cells for customer testing in about 6 months and a commercial prototype of pouches – used in mobile phones, laptops, etc. – for customer testing in about 18 months.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has engaged B. Riley Securities as the exclusive advisor and sponsor of the capital markets in connection with the search for listing of the Company’s shares on the OTCQB market in the United States.
