PRODUCING GREEN GRAPHENE
2D fab’s unique manufacturing process is energy efficient with little or no waste. We have created a sustainable cycle where all inputs that are not integrated into the final product are reused in the manufacturing process. Other environmental benefits of our production process are:
Free from harmful chemicals
Emission level close to zero
Energy efficient – uses less that 1% compared to similar methods
Fit for customer site manufacturing – reduces unnecessary transportation
REDUCING LEVELS OF CO2
Graphene is highly efficient in its use of energy. The material transports energy much better than most alternatives, and dramatically improves storage of energy.
Graphene also enables reduced levels of carbon dioxide, since it:
Decreases energy consumption during product transportation
Decreases the amount of plastics and/or other materials in products
WE SUPPORT THE UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, AGENDA 2030, WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS ON THESE FOUR GOALS
No. 9 Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
No. 11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
No. 12 Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
No. 13 Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
MORE SUSTAINABLE POLYMERS AND RUBBERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Rubber and polymer materials have many uses where their unique properties make them extremely competitive, often to such a high degree that they are the only possible alternatives. Improving key characteristics for specific applications can increase service life and performance, thus reducing resource needs for both materials and maintenance.
The majority of rubber materials used in the world are made from fossil raw materials. Increased service life and resource efficiency of rubber products have a direct impact on the use of fossil materials.
2D fab collaborate with world-leading greentech company EcoRub to incorporate graphene in recycled rubber and polymer materials. Read more about how we improve recycled rubber products and waste rubber and put them to use in new materials and products here.
GREAT RESULTS THAT STICK
Graphene is a multi-functional material, giving graphene-enhanced materials and production processes multiple positive effects. Our customer, the worldwide operating chemical company Kemind, has managed to increase production efficiency as well as improve quality for various corrugated board products. Here is a summary of results from Kemind.
Glue for corrugated board:
Takes 30% less time to dry, greatly saving energy and time
Smaller CO2 footprint
Stronger corrugated board
