Company First Graphene (FGR) has been tirelessly working on advancing supercapacitors and has been trying to create high-performance materials for them, and recently they have reached a major turning point.
Supercapacitors are high-capacity capacitors that store electrical energy, not unlike a battery. These boosted versions of capacitors typically use carbon materials, but FGR has developed a graphene-based substitute for those materials, and they’re of a much higher quality and performance. These graphene materials outperform their carbon counterparts by a significant margin, and hopefully will soon become an essential part of many supercapacitor manufacturing companies.
Despite all this, FGR’s not done yet. Managing Director and CEO Michael Bell says that “Our next challenge is to optimize performance with other device components, with a particular focus on a suitable electrolyte. We have established important strategic relationships to do this.”
