Haydale recently shared updates on the passing financial year and on the prospects for the Group. The total income for the financial year ended 30 June 2017 is reportedly expected to be in line with current market expectations, which represents a doubling when compared with the prior financial year.

According to Haydale, the cash balance at 30 June 2017 stood at approximately £2.0 million (31 December 2016: £1.1 million). At the year's end, the Group's order book, being product sales orders and consulting contracts to be fulfilled over the next 3.5 years, stood at approximately £5.4 million, which is at record levels for Haydale and provides good visibility on the Group's future income.

First Graphite moves forward with planned graphene production facility

Graphene Info - Mon, 24/07/2017 - 4:21pm

First Graphite recently announced the receipt of government approvals for its planned commercial graphene production facility, which is aimed at being operational in Q4 of 2017. FGR said that the production facility will be funded from existing cash balances.

Initial capacity will reportedly be in the order of 20-25 tonnes per annum of saleable graphene, based on a single shift operation, five days per week. Multiple shifts could escalate production rates to globally significant levels in the event suitable sales contracts are negotiated.

Novel graphene production method relies on degassed water

Graphene Info - Mon, 24/07/2017 - 3:55pm

Researchers at IMM-CNR (Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the National Research Council), in collaboration with the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and the University of Montpellier, have developed a new graphene production technique that uses degassed water, instead of surfactants to prevent graphene flakes from aggregating.

The new method enables graphene production in a convenient, easy and environmentally friendly way. The technique reportedly yields large amounts of single-layer graphene. The teams started with graphite, exfoliated under inert atmosphere in tetrahydrofuran, an organic solvent. The solution is then oxidized and transferred to degassed water. The absence of gases in the water prevents the single layers of graphene from aggregating and settling at the bottom, leaving the flakes dispersed in the solution.

Graphenea announces new graphene oxide pilot plant

Graphene Info - Sun, 23/07/2017 - 1:11am

Graphenea recently announced the opening of a new graphene oxide (GO) pilot plant with 1 tonne per annum production capacity. The new plant is meant to significantly increase production capacity for Graphenea (which is already producing GO dispersions, powders, and films), while also allowing for higher quality and batch-to-batch reproducibility. The plant reportedly houses in-line quality control of each individual batch.

Graphenea stated that although the production volume is large, the new plant can accommodate custom requirements regarding flake size, oxygen levels, and other specifications. Orders for multi-kilogram quantities will be processed with short delivery times. The production capacity is multiplied by 20 times compared to capabilities before the pilot plant, allowing for development and industrial scale supplies.
