On October 1, the world exhibition Expo 2020 in Dubai was inaugurated, and Graphmatech partner and investor ABB is a part of the Swedish pavilion. ABB is presenting their case with Graphmatech, among other things.
Experts from ABB and Graphmatech are exploring a huge range of industrial uses for graphene. Having already developed more sustainable long-life electrical contacts, they are collaborating on lubricant-free circuit breakers and graphene-enhanced materials suitable for packaging and cooling electronics.
Other applications include batteries and semiconductors with improved energy efficiency. With its enhanced thermal and electrical conductivity, graphene could revolutionise electric vehicle batteries, enabling faster charging and helping increase the adoption of environmentally-friendly electric mobility.
Graphmatech and ABB are proud to be working together to bring the promising innovations of this remarkable material to the world, for a smarter, more sustainable future.
The Swedish Pavilion at Expo 2020 focuses on new ways to build The Smart Society, including topics such as tech, next-generation transport, Industry 4.0, new materials, and circular bio-based economies.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Expo 2020 was postponed by one year and will now be open from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
