The collaboration with SaltX enters new phase. Ahlstrom-Munksjö to scale up testing.
2D fab is a strategic partner and supplier of graphene in a collaboration project between the energy storage company SaltX Technology and the industry leader Ahlstrom-Munksjö, which manufactures fiber-based products. This project now enters a new phase where production tests will be done in larger scale.
We now need to expand our production capacity dramatically
In the project SaltX and Ahlstrom-Munksjö develops and tests an industrial process for large scale manufacturing of graphene coated paper with added nano coated salt. Graphene increases the heat conductivity capacity in the SaltX material up to five times, which implies a potential cost cut of 80% in the SaltX energy storage material. The project started in March 2018 and will run over two years.
– To meet the increase in graphene demand from these production tests and coming, forecasted commercial volumes in this collaboration, we now need to expand our production capacity dramatically. That graphene coating of paper works technically, and that we are now one step closer to commercial market volumes of graphene is exciting, says Sven Forsberg, CEO of 2D fab.
