Advanced materials company, First Graphene (ASX:FGR) has launched its 50 per cent-owned associate company, 2D Fluidics in collaboration with Flinders University.
The initial objective of 2D Fluidics will be the commercialisation of the Vortex Fluidic Device, invented by the Flinders Institute for NanoScale Science and Technology’s Professor Colin Raston.
The VFD enables new approaches to producing a wide range of materials such as graphene and sliced carbon nanotubes, with the bonus of not needing to use harsh or toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.
This clean processing breakthrough will also greatly reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of manufacturing these new high quality super-strength carbon materials.
