Avadain’s prototyping successfully demonstrated that our patented technology reliably produces large, thin and very few defect graphene flakes using a batch process.
The next step is to convert to a high-throughput continuous flow process for producing metric tons of high-quality graphene flakes at low cost.
WHERE WE ARE HEADED
Avadain has engaged the Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment (RAPID) Institute, a part of the Manufacturing USA network, as project manager to work with our team to upscale Avdain’s technology. RAPID is focused entirely on continuous manufacturing. RAPID brings together the top minds in chemical engineering science, reaction engineering, separations, process intensification, modular manufacturing, and process scale-up.
- RAPID is a public/private partnership between the US Department of Energy and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. RAPID is focused on the use of advanced materials, novel manufacturing techniques and advances in process modeling to quickly and efficiently move technologies like Avadain’s from pilot to production
- RAPID has a large member network which includes many of the companies which Avadain will target as potential licensees
- RAPID will work with a Texas-based independent, non-profit R&D powerhouse to develop industrial scale graphene flake production
