Bright Day manufactures sustainable graphene from biomass
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.
Thinking outside of the lab, Bright Day Graphene has devised a way to produce graphene using lignin, a sustainable and renewable surplus product from the forest industry. They transform lignin into a high-quality graphene material, in a process that’s 100% toxin free from production to disposal.
Created using renewable resources, this ‘green graphene’ taps into a unique set of properties optimised for energy storage and an array of applications that also benefit from the outstanding thermal and electrical conductivity of graphene, such as batteries and supercapacitors.
Developing new, efficient methods to store energy is the key to unlocking the door to a more sustainable future. Trials have shown that graphene-enabled battery electrodes enhance energy capacity by 45%, increase reliability and reduce charging times by up to eight times. Our connected life is built on batteries and graphene could ensure demand doesn’t outstrip supply.
Graphene Flagship Associated Member Bright Day Graphene is on a mission to provide mass produced premium graphene and revolutionise a wide number of markets. Using organic materials to produce graphene means this material can be produced in large volumes, without damaging the environment, enabling next-generation graphene products to reach the market.
Yuri Svirko, Leader of the Graphene Flagship Partnering Division says “We are really excited to welcome Bright Day Graphene, a pioneer in the production of the climate neutral green graphene that offers new sustainable energy storage solutions. Together we can achieve the mission of producing high-quality graphene for high-tech applications.”
At the end of 2022, Bright Day Graphene will be running an industrial pilot project, with small production batches. Visit their website at brightdaygraphene.se to find out more and join them on the journey to enabling a sustainable energy society.
