Aros Graphene® wins award for highest potential innovation


Graphmatech’s Aros Graphene® has been selected as one of 11 winners in UU Innovation’s inaugural ‘Attractive Innovation Project’ awards – given to those innovations judged to have the highest potential from Uppsala University in 2017.

UU Innovation introduced the new ‘Attractive Innovation Project’ award in connection with their 10th anniversary, to highlight ongoing innovation projects initiated by researchers and students at Uppsala University.

An “Attractive Innovation Project” is deemed to be one with high innovation potential that has received support from UU Innovation, and also external funding that has further enhanced its development potential.

The award will be given once a year. This year, 11 projects were recognized, representing a range of novel solutions to real-world challenges, from archaeology, human rights and youth news feeds to plant cultivation, new materials and diagnostic tests.

Solid progress in hydrogen infrastructure certification 

Uppsala, Sweden — Hydrogen is an important part of the transition to a more sustainable future. However, it presents engineering challenges since the gas easily escapes from pipes and storage vessels. Hydrogen is not only expensive, but it also has an eleven times greater global warming potential (GWP) than carbon dioxide. It’s imperative for both

Blowmoulded graphene-enhanced liners now a reality for the hydrogen industry!

Uppsala, Sweden — Graphmatech AB, a leading company in the development of graphene-enhanced polymers, is proud to announce its collaboration with ST Blowmoulding to achieve the first successful blow moulding production of graphene-carrying HDPE liners on their ASPI 200 BM machine. This achievement demonstrates the compatibility of Graphmatech’s graphene-carrying thermoplastics with another key industrial production

Safer, less leaky gas tubes to Canada 

Uppsala, Sweden — According to their new MoU, Polytubes and Graphmatech are co-developing tubes for hydrogen and gas distribution.  The pipes are expected to leak significantly less hydrogen gas than current technology. Reducing leakage is not only a financial priority, but also an environmental priority. Hydrogen has a an eleven-times higher global warming potential (GWP)

Steelhead Composites and Graphmatech are developing improved hydrogen storage tanks with graphene

Uppsala, Sweden — The companies will develop and produce a new high performance type IV pressure vessel liner. Expected improvements include reduced hydrogen leakage and increased resistance to extreme thermal- and pressure conditions. The partnership combines Steelhead Composites’ leading pressure vessel technology, services, and market position with Graphmatech’s graphene-polymer composites for the hydrogen economy. Graphmatech’s
