Global Graphene Group Inc. (G3) was the first company to discover and patent graphene in 2002 BZ Jang, et al, “Nano-scaled Graphene Plates,” US Nos. Appl. No. 10/274,473 (10/21/2002); now US Pat. N ° 7 071 258 (04/07/2006), two years before Nobel laureates Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov published their findings on mechanical exfoliation of graphene using scotch tape. Since 2002, G3 has been developing mass production processes for monolayer and multilayer graphene and their derivative composites. G3 has the largest and largest portfolio of patents related to graphene, graphene production and products compatible with graphene. Our Graphene Silicon Composite Anode (GCA) was honored in 2018 as the R&D 100 laureate. We are focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative and affordable solutions based on graphene and engineered.
Dr Jang’s presentation will be followed by a discussion of some of the potential and realized applications of graphene-based materials, including graphene-based batteries for electric vehicle applications. Dr. Jang’s research team were the first to invent graphene-containing anode and cathode materials for lithium-ion cells. The team also developed graphene-based lithium metal anode protection technology, which is essential for the emergence of all secondary lithium metal batteries such as Li-S, Li-Se, Li-air and d ” other rechargeable batteries fitted with a lithium metal anode. The graphene-protected sulfur cathode was also developed to overcome the challenges that have so far hampered the large-scale commercialization of Li-S cells, including the shuttle effect, low sulfur conductivity, low content sulfur and the efficiency of sulfur use.
Global Graphene Group (G3) is one of the world’s largest producers of graphene and a leader in the development of graphene-based killer applications. G3 is headquartered in Dayton, OH, with additional facilities in Taiwan and China. G3 aims to innovate in energy storage technologies including graphene protected Li metal anodes, graphene enhanced Si anodes / high Ni cathodes, graphene / Al current collectors for high voltage cathodes, graphene dispersion for high power applications and FireshieldTM battery safety technology. G3 is currently developing a safe 400 Wh / kg battery.
