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.

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.

A breakthrough in battery recycling helps enable the green transition

Graphmatech, Graphenea, and Northvolt have succeeded in up-cycling end-of-life EV batteries into graphene oxide at industrial pilot scale. This breakthrough uses the material left after Northvolt has extracted valuable metals and minerals. Until now, that remaining material has been waste.   Emma Nehrenheim, Chief Environmental Officer of Northvolt, comments: “The upcycling of graphene oxide from recycled

Graphmatech and Wematter partner to enable cutting-edge conductive materials for SLS 3D printing

Swedish graphene-solutions provider Graphmatech is partnering with 3D printer manufacturer Wematter, the easy-to-use SLS 3D-printing platform provider for additive manufacturing. Graphmatech enhances polymer powders with Graphene, which makes them electrically- and thermally conductive, improve processibility, and more. Together, the two startups will develop an electrically conductive powder, tailored for Gravity – the SLS 3D printer
