For the past years 2D fab has detected an increased demand for graphene. To meet the needs from customers and partners, a decision to expand the production capacity was made. Now, a year and a half later, we can proudly present our brand new, industrial-size production plant.
– The new plant increases 2D fab’s production capacity to ten tons graphene per year, an amount that gives us the opportunity to partner up with large corporations in the application areas where our graphene can make a huge difference, for example within plastic and battery development, says Roland Bäck, Process Developer at 2D fab.
A more consistent graphene quality
The advantages of the new factory are many. Benefits include a higher degree of automation and improved work environment. The production plant is also more cost-effective, increases the energy efficiency of the process, and enables a more consistent and predictable graphene quality. The latter letting the company, to greater extent than before, provide customers with custom made graphene. Being able to do this is – together with the company’s green production processes – what makes 2D fab so unique within the graphene manufacturing field.
– 2D fab’s production process is hydromechanical, i.e. water based, and no harmful chemicals are being used. The company’s emission level is close to zero, and all semi-finished material will be re-circulated. The process is also very energy efficient – studies show that it uses less than one percent of the energy consumption compared to other comparable processes – thus very environmentally friendly, says Kajsa Lake, Production Manager at 2D fab.
