The latest and possibly greenest of graphene production methods has emerged from work conducted at Toyohashi University in Japan. Research conducted by a team lead by Yuji Tanizawa has shown that microorganisms can be usefully employed to reduce grahene oxide flakes by means of respiration and electron transport. The new method vastly improves the current hydrazine vapour and high temperature techniques which are toxic and uneconomical.

California Lithium Battery Inc. (CalBattery) announced at last week’s Department of Energy’s ARPA-e Energy Innovation Summit in Washington, D.C. that they have entered into a Work for Others (WFO) agreement with Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) to commercialize a breakthrough low cost “GEN3” lithium battery. This new transformational battery will offer the highest energy density and longest cycle life of any lithium battery made today. CalBattery believes that it will be able manufacture this GEN3 lithium-ion battery in the US at a comparable cost reduction up to 70%.
As the graphite market bubble grows, so does investor interest and scrutiny of a mining sector bedeviled historically by supply/demand cycles, aided and abetted by China’s overwhelming market influence.
The United States, Europe and China regard graphite as a critical material – a necessity of life for future industrial growth and economic prosperity.
Global markets know this fact and the response has been an explosion of interest, investment and growth in new graphite mine development.
Vancouver, BC. – LOMIKO METALS INC. (TSX-V:LMR, OTC: LMRMF, Europe: ISIN: CA54163Q1028,
WKN: A0Q9W7,) (“Lomiko” or “the Company) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr.
Dietmar Siebholz to the Board of Advisors. Dr. Siebholz has been researching graphite and graphene
investment developments in Europe and is a significant shareholder of Lomiko Metals. In the spring of 2010, Dr. Siebholz added graphite to the list of minerals he favours for investment. In his opinion, graphite is the technology mineral of the future that should replace common technology resources – at least partially – within the next ten years.
The future’s bright the future’s foldable. Samsung has recently aired an advertisement on South Korean TV showing a number of products they hope to develop and deliver to the average technology customer. South Korea’s investment strategy is really starting to pay off.
