Graphene Manufacturing Group (GMG) has announced that it will join the Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre (“CRC“) for battery electrolytes development along with various organizations and universities.
The CRC’s objective is to develop advanced electrolyte systems that improve battery performance. The project will run over a period of 4 years with GMG providing a source of graphene and personnel time to the project.
GMG’s Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Ashok Nanjundan said, “This is another exciting energy storage development project showcasing the potential uses of GMG’s graphene for the further development of various existing battery technologies.”
The CRC brings together almost 60 industry participants, including eight universities, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, and Federal and State Governments. A six-year research and development program will target all segments of the battery value chain to deliver commercially proprietary outcomes to accelerate industry expansion and grow a vibrant, emerging battery sector. With approximately A$130 million cash and in-kind contributions, the CRC is focused on Australia as a leader in battery industries that seeks to create a new generation of highly skilled workers equipped to deliver energy materials of the future.
Earlier this month, GMG shared recent updates on its aluminum-ion coin cell batteries performance.
