As many of us deal with this summer’s unrelenting heat, it is important to focus on graphene’s potential to revolutionize the fight against climate change. Avadain is proud to play a part with our environmentally friendly and globally patented technology to manufacture high-quality graphene flakes.

Graphene is one of the most disruptive materials ever discovered. It is the lightest, strongest, thinnest, best thermal & electricity-conducting material. Because of its amazing qualities, it can help combat climate change.

Energy Storage

Graphene is ideal for a range of energy storage applications, including supercapacitors, electric vehicle batteries, and renewable energy storage. Graphene-based materials have high porosity and greater surface area and are extremely strong and lightweight. Additionally, these materials possess high-charging capability and flexibility and are good conductors of thermal and electrical energy, making them ideal for storing energy.

Supercapacitors are batteries that can recharge and discharge almost instantly. Avadain has demonstrated that adding 0.50% of our high quality graphene flakes to a supercapacitor enabled very rapid charging/discharging, 100% depth of discharge, and increased power density. It also enabled constant specific capacitance as the discharge current increases, whereas other conductive materials had declining specific capacitance.  The market for supercapacitor conductive materials is estimated at $8 billion annually and growing.

Graphene can transform electric vehicle batteries because of its large surface area, extreme lightweight, strength, and electrical/thermal conductivity. In a Business Insider article, Elon Musk says Tesla may use graphene to push its performance to a new level. One near-term graphene use is in a battery’s electrodes.

Renewable Energy

According to the International Energy Agency, the global supply of renewable electricity could expand by 50% in the next five years – powered by a resurgence in solar energy. Graphene can play a vital role in meeting energy storage needs to store this green energy and improve solar cells’ efficiency.

Commercial Aviation

Graphene could also help make aviation less harmful to the health of our planet. According to the International Air Transport Association, the aviation sector produces 900 million tons of CO2 per year. By 2050, if nothing is done to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint, CO2 could rise to 1.8 billion tons.

Richard Branson has long championed the use of graphene to de-weight aircraft bodies. In a Travel & Leisure article, he says that graphene is “the next revolutionary step in building lighter, safer and more efficient planes.”

In another development, researchers are experimenting with a new fuel additive that uses tiny amounts of graphene. The goal is to optimize fuel consumption.
