2D fab, a Swedish manufacturer of graphene, has announced the opening of a new industrial-sized volume production plant which promises increased production capacity, more consistent graphene quality, as well as overall higher energy efficiency.
The company says the new plant will offer an improved working environment, adding more automation to its operation. The new plant will increase the company’s graphene production capacity to 10 tons annually.
The plant uses a hydrochemical method to produce its graphene, using water instead of harsh chemical materials. That makes its emissions level near zero. The process by which the plant creates its graphene is also extremely low, less than 1 percent of comparable methods, the company says.
The announcement follows 2D fab’s announcement last year that it would expand its production capabilities, seeing an increased demand for graphene in recent years it expects will only continue to accelerate.
