VANCOUVER — HydroGraph provided an update on their operations on Jul. 13, detailed below.

Completes First Commercial Scale Graphene Production Unit
Leading industry groups have projected demand for graphene will far outpace production capacity, leading HydroGraph to focus on a highly scalable design with unparalleled purity and consistency. To address the growing demand for pristine graphene, HydroGraph management challenged their team to produce a modular production unit capable of more than 10 metric tons annually. In May 2023, HydroGraph says they achieved this vision, completing the first cost-effective, modular, commercial-scale unit for the high-volume production of pristine graphene. The Company‘s production unit, the Hyperion System, can reportedly produce over 10 metric tons per year using readily available acetylene and oxygen (inputs), which will be used to serve various markets including lubricants, energy storage, resins, specialty chemicals, coatings, and others. The first of dozens of systems expected built over the next 3 to 5 years.

HydroGraph’s first commercial scale fractal graphene unit

As part of its strategy, the Company targeted key markets including the US$136 billion lubricant industry. In support of that focus, the Company recently announced that application of its graphene improves the operating life of base oil lubricants by more than 24 times and reduces the coefficient of friction by 70%.

Virtually all moving parts requires some form of lubrication and most lubricants degrade over time, requiring machine shut down to replace and dispose of spent lubricants. The low coefficient of friction of lubricants with HydroGraph’s graphene reduces mechanical wear, breakdowns, maintenance and downtime, extending the lubricant lifecycle and overall productivity.

Currently, the Company is engaging with several lubrication companies, who are testing their product for anti-static, anti-corrosion, and thermal properties (in addition to frication mentioned above) using HydroGraph’s graphene. We expect to get these test results and move forward to the next stage of engagement in the coming months.

HydroGraph Graphene Improves Performance in Lithium Air Battery Test
HydroGraph continues to work with key partners who have unique capabilities that complement our own. As a result of such partnerships, HydroGraph announced a new development that could open new target markets in energy storage which is instrumental in the electrification of the economy. In recent tests, HydroGraph says their graphene surpassed the performance of the leading cathode carbon materials in a lithium air battery test.
