stablished in 2012, Spanish company Graphenano
Nanotechnologies is devoted to the production of
graphene on industrial scales presented on sheets and
wires made of copper or nickel, powder of graphene, graphene
oxide, carbon nanostructures and spheres. Graphenano is heavily
involved in the research and development of commercial and
industrial applications of such materials in the fields of electronics
and electricity, and in the design of new composites for thermal,
mechanical and electrical purposes.
Carbon nanostructures supplied by Graphenano
Nanotechnologies are being used by other companies in the
formulation of a new generation of batteries, adhesives, leather
and cardboard additives, polymer-based composites, and paints
and concretes with improved mechanical, thermal, electrical and
electronic capabilities heretofore undescribed.
Projects
Graphenano collaborates with several companies and
universities developing very ambitious projects. Some of them
are listed below.
Batteries:
The development of a polymer based on graphene that
quadruples the energetic density of current Li-ion technology,
increasing by three times the energy density of lithium, providing
rechargeable properties and vanishing the memory effect.
This graphene polymer is being developed in collaboration with
the University of Cordoba, Spain, and Graphenano
Nanotechnologies under the entity of GRABAT Energy.
This technology could result in a huge step forward in the
electrical automotive sector, making it accessible and affordable
for our daily use.
Construction materials:
Combining traditional manufacturing
procedures with the most innovative ones – the main idea
being to supply products to be used in modern constructions,
but also to improve the performance of the ones constructed
using this method.
Graphenstone™:
Collaborating with Spanish company IEdiSA,
Graphenano developed an innovative and commercial paint which
incorporates graphene and has remarkable properties in terms of
long durability, resistance, improved breathability by preventing
moisture issues, and only minor formation of cracks under
extreme conditions.When this product is used in construction, it
reabsorbs CO
2
from the air and turns back into calcium
carbonate. Furthermore, contrary to modern paints, this kind of
product does not cause any environmental or health problems.
The cleaning up of radioactive water:
In collaboration with
TEPCO and Graphenano’s representative, Clean Energy Europa, in
Japan, this project is focused on removing radioactive isotopes of
actinides and lanthanides from liquids, rather than solids or
gases. “Graphenano’s graphene oxide introduced to simulated
wastes coagulated within minutes, quickly clumping the toxins.”
Others include:
n
Sensors for glucose, uric acid, and arterial tension;
n
Dental prostheses; and
n
Rubbers and foam rubbers doped with graphene, improving its
wear and resistance properties.
Additives
Horminano GHA-45:
An additive for concrete developed by
Graphenano’s engineers which is designed to improve all of
concrete’s qualitative and quantitative features in terms of
mechanics, durability and resistance against external aggressions.
GHA-45 is designed for all kinds of construction or building use,
from a single family home to a big civil or marine infrastructure.
The greatest improvements with our additive are:
n
Increased compression capacity of 30%;
Graphenano is involved in a variety of areas when it comes to research and
development, and offers a multitude of products through its devotion to industrial
scale graphene production
