Graphene nanotube manufacturer OCSiAl has launched a new technical support center in China

OCSiAl, the world’s largest manufacturer of graphene nanotubes, has opened its second technical support center, this time in Shanghai, China. This is yet another step in expanding its global activities and will lead to further improvements in the company’s technical support for its Asian customers and to the development of innovative products such as a nanotube concentrate for lightweight sports equipment including bicycle rims and frames, helmets, baseball bats, and hockey and tennis rackets.

The first nanotube applications award honors the scientist revolutionizing Li-ion batteries

The first international award established for scientists developing industrial applications of single wall carbon nanotubes has announced its inaugural winner. The TUBALL Award has been presented to Prof. Jonathan Coleman from the AMBER Centre for his extensive work on carbon nanotubes, most recently on developing technology that increases the energy density of lithium-ion batteries by 2.5 times that of any existing battery on the market.

EvNerds: Graphene nanotubes break battery energy density limits

How can lithium-ion battery energy density be increased up to 400 Wh/kg? What is the key to adopting silicon anodes in the industry, enabling commercial mass-produced electric vehicle (EV) batteries? The 2019 Nanoaugmented Materials Industry Summit (NAUM’19) focused on answers to these questions, with 450 key industry players and scientists from 31 countries discussing 50 diverse applications of graphene nanotubes, including the impressive results that these tiny tubes are achieving in batteries.
