Graphene Lighting PLC to List on Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada

Graphene Lighting PLC is aiming to become a world leader in the commercialization of graphene based light bulbs and illumination systems. The graphene bulb can be compared to the popular Light Emitting Diode (LED) which has taken the world by storm due to its low operating costs and brightness. A thin graphene coating further improves upon the strengths of the standard LED bulb. Specific benefits of graphene bulbs include longevity, minimal weight, low heat emitting, and aesthetics.

In its bid to further this technology, Graphene Lighting PLC is aiming to be listed on the Toronto stock exchange in Canada.  In order to accomplish this the British company has signed a letter of intent to participate in a reverse takeover with a Canadian capital corporation called Oriana Resources Corp.  (TSX: V.OUP.H). The reverse takeover entails a stock share exchange, resulting in Graphene Lighting becoming a subsidiary of Oriana Resources.

A Better, Faster, and Safer Graphene Production Method

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) along with the University Of Western Australia (UWA), has developed a new method of producing graphene. This production process may further enhance graphene’s viability for energy storage.

Compared to current manufacturing processes, this new production method has been described as being able to synthesize higher quality graphene in a much faster time frame. Even more astounding is the claim that this method is scalable to a commercial level.

One of the benefits of this new production technology is there is a decreased need for the use of toxic chemicals in the production process.

10 Things You Should Know About Graphene

One important step any investor should take is to understand the product, service and industry of the company(s) you want to invest in. This may seem obvious, but you might be surprised at how many people get caught up in the financial “hard numbers” rather than taking in the nuances of the organizations environment.

If you want to buy stocks in an automotive company, you would want to stay on top of consumer trends, competition, emerging technology etc. In the case of graphene, this maybe a little more difficult as there is a lot of hard science and technical jargon to read and understand, not to mention the fast pace at which new developments emerge.

This list of 10 things you should know about graphene will give your graphene knowledge a little bump, or maybe just a refresh:

3D White Graphene Will Cool Electronics Better

White Graphene Electronics CoolingTwo Rice University researchers, Rouzbeh Shahsavari and Navid Sakhavand have submitted initial theoretical data on how 3D boron nitride (white graphene) can be utilized to regulate heat flow in small electronics.

The ultimate goal of their research is to improve cooling and airflow of heat in smaller electronic devises.

Shahsavari states, “Typically in all electronics, it is highly desired to get heat out of the system as quickly and efficiently as possible,” he further elaborated on why an improvement on current and old cooling methods is required, “when you have layered materials on a substrate … heat moves very quickly in one direction, along a conductive plane, but not so good from layer to layer.”

Graphene 3D Lab Co-founder Steps Down From Board, Outstanding Shares Reduced

Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) has announced that there will be a reduction of the company’s outstanding shares by 7.3%. This translates into a change from 44,387,500 to 41,164,955 common shares. The cause of the share reduction is a result of the departure of co-founder Michael Gouzman who served on the company’s advisory board. The rights to the shares were contingent on Mr. Gouzman remaining on the advisory board.

The President and CEO of Graphene 3D, stated “I want to thank Professor Gouzman for his contributions and service to the company and I wish him every success in his future endeavors.”

What are the repercussion of a cancellation or reduction of shares?

More importantly what are the repercussions of the co-founder stepping down from the advisory board?
