Are graphene batteries finally getting closer to commercialization?

Batteries have always been a highly sought-after application for graphene materials, bearing promises of expanded capacity, ultra-fast charging, improved safety of use and more.

Early testing in labs and research institutes were very promising, but the move from lab to market proved more challenging than people expected. Even today, in 2021, graphene batteries aren't on the market yet, in any major way.

We do see, however, some niche adoption - for example, the use of graphene to enable novel battery casings, or extending the battery's temperature range (see Huawei's 2016 graphene battery announcement for example). But actual graphene-enhanced battery anodes or other components haven't been realized yet.

Graphex Group to establish a second spherical graphite production site in China

This is a sponsored post by The Graphex Group

The Graphex Group Ltd (GRFXY listed on OTCQX), a leading developer of graphene products and technologies and a manufacturer of spherical graphite and graphene technology for the renewable energy sector, has set up an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Heilongjiang Province Graphex New Material Technology Company Limited (“HLJ Province Graphex”) at Qitaihe City of the Heilongjiang Province of China.

Graphex's manufacturing facility for spherical graphite is strategically located in Heilongjiang Province, which is rich in high-quality natural graphite reserves. Once HLJ Province Graphex’s new production facility is fully online, the company expects to increase annual production by 30,000 tons to a total of 40,000 tons.
