GMG GRAPHENE ALUMINIUM-ION BATTERY PERFORMANCE DATA

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Might 11, 2021 – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSX-V: GMG) (“GMG” or the “Firm”) is happy to share the preliminary efficiency knowledge when examined in coin cells for the patent-pending floor perforation of graphene in aluminium-ion batteries developed by the Firm and the College of Queensland (“UQ”). The experiments had been carried out on the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (“AIBN”) at UQ. Preliminary efficiency knowledge is introduced under. Presently, GMG Graphene is being used to supply coin cell prototypes for buyer testing in This fall 2021.

GMG introduced lately the execution of a analysis settlement with UQ’s AIBN to develop graphene aluminium-ion batteries (please check with the Firm’s Information Launch dated April 22, 2021, for additional particulars). Below the settlement, GMG will manufacture business battery prototypes for watches, telephones, laptops, electrical autos and grid storage with expertise developed at UQ. GMG has additionally signed a license settlement with Uniquest, the College of Queensland commercialisation firm, which supplies GMG an unique license of the expertise for battery cathodes.      

GMG CEO and Managing Director Craig Nicol stated, “We’re presently seeking to deliver coin cell business prototypes for buyer testing in 6 months and a pouch pack business prototype – utilized in cell phones, laptops and so forth. – for buyer testing in 18 months. We’re actually excited about bringing this to market. We goal to have a viable graphene and coin cell battery manufacturing facility challenge after buyer validation that we’d doubtless construct right here in Australia,” stated Craig Nicol.  

Dr Ashok Nanjundan, GMG’s Chief Scientific Officer, stated, “It is a actual game-changing expertise which might supply an actual different with an interchangeable battery expertise for the present lithium-ion batteries in virtually each software with GMG’s Graphene and UQ’s patent-pending aluminium ion battery expertise. The present nominal voltage of our batteries is 1.7 volts, and work is being carried out to extend the voltage to instantly exchange present batteries and which result in increased vitality densities.”  

“The actual differentiator about these batteries is their very excessive energy density of as much as 7000 watts/kg, which endows them with a very excessive cost price. Moreover, graphene aluminium-ion batteries present main advantages when it comes to longer battery life (over 2000 cost / discharge cycles testing thus far with no deterioration in efficiency), battery security (very low fireplace potential) and decrease environmental impression (extra recyclable),” stated Dr Ashok Nanjundan. 

GMG will make additional disclosures relating to the efficiency and improvement of those graphene aluminium ion batteries because the analysis and improvement program progresses. 

About GMG 

GMG is an Australian based mostly clean-tech disruptive firm listed on the TSXV (TSXV:GMG) that produces graphene and hydrogen by cracking methane (pure gasoline) as an alternative of mining graphite. By utilizing the corporate’s proprietary course of, GMG can produce top quality, low value, scalable, ‘tuneable’ and no/low contaminant graphene – enabling demonstrated value and environmental enhancements in quite a lot of world-scale planet-friendly/clean-tech purposes. Utilizing this low enter value supply of graphene, the Firm is growing value-added merchandise that concentrate on the large vitality effectivity and vitality storage markets. 

  The Firm can also be within the early phases of pursuing extra alternatives for GMG Graphene, together with growing next-generation batteries, collaborating with world-leading universities in Australia, and investigating the chance to boost the efficiency of lube oil, biodiesel and diesel fuels.
