Bright future for 3D-printable conductive filaments

SHARE

Vinnova has once again recognized the potential in graphene by committing to the second stage of a Graphmatech project to develop 3D-printable nanocomposites for thermal management applications!

Targeting innovative start-ups, Vinnova decided to award the company a grant that amounts to 900 000 SEK. The basics of this project are that Aros Graphene provides an even distribution of graphene in a composite, and its inherent properties also render it possible to 3D-print such a material. This enables tailor-made designs of nanocomposites.

Apart from enhancing the mechanical strength and electrical conductivity, graphene also has by far the best thermal conductivity of all known materials. These nanocomposites can therefore be utilized in thermal management applications, such as casings for electronics and energy storage units.

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

Project: Standardizing the Swedish graphene industry

“Swedish standardization work linked to graphene has been going on for a couple of years, but there are still very few actors who actively participate in the work. To be able to influence development, Sweden needs to take an active part in international standardization work.“ Graphmatech is taking part in a joint project towards standardizing

Graphmatech’s graphene technology unlocks the potential of copper additive manufacturing
