Graphene can be produced using a range of methods, but what are the most sustainable options? To answer this question, Graphene Flagship researchers published three studies related to the sustainable production of graphene related materials and their life cycle assessment – the best tool to evaluate the environmental footprint of a product or material.
Making progress in photovoltaics
The Graphene Flagship will exhibit exciting graphene applications for the energy sector at Enlit Europe, from 29 November to 1 December 2022 in Frankfurt.
The next generation of solar power is just around the corner. the solar cells created by the Graphene Flagship's GRAPES Spearhead Project are a unique fusion of silicon and perovskite technologies, enhanced by graphene.
The Swedish spin off pioneers a technology to control edges in transition metal dichalcogenides with close-to-atomic precision
The CircuitBreakers Spearhead Project, funded by the Graphene Flagship and led by industrial partners ABB, Nanesa and GraphMaTech AB, is developing a first-of-their-kind grease-free, maintenance-free, low-voltage circuit breakers for fault protection in key parts of the electrical grid.
The graphene technologies improving battery performance
Expected improvements include extreme temperature and pressure.
Solar panels comprising perovskite, graphene and related materials demonstrate their potential in outdoor tests.
The Graphene Flagship proudly welcome Bright Day Graphene, our latest Associated Member. Founded in 2017, Bright Day Graphene AB, in Sweden, strives to offer high performing materials without harmful environmental impacts.
Graphene Flagship Spearhead Project GRAPES makes cost-effective and stable photovoltaic panels with graphene and layered materials
By the end of Graphene Flagship Core 3 in 2023, our Spearhead Project GrEEnBat plans to enter the four-year automotive development cycle with their battery module.
Cecilia Mattevi was an invited speaker at Graphene Week 2021, where she showed us her exciting work on the 3D-printing of energy storage devices – with the help of graphene. "We are very interested in layered materials, in particular graphene, for energy applications" she says.
High-tech materials such as graphene, which were once only available in laboratories, are now being used throughout cities in a variety of applications, to enable the effective deployment of smart city infrastructure.
