Can Graphene Make the World’s Water Clean?

Graphene water filter

In the 2015 World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report survey participants ranked Water Crises as the biggest of all risks, higher than Weapons of Mass Destruction, Interstate Conflict and the Spread of Infectious Diseases (pandemics). Our dependence on the availability of fresh water is well documented, and the United Nations World Water Development Report 2015 highlights a 40% global shortfall between forecast water demand and available supply within the next fifteen years. Agriculture accounts for much of the demand, up to 90% in most of the world’s least-developed countries, and there is a clear relationship between water availability, health, food production and the potential for civil unrest or interstate conflict.

The looming crisis is not limited to water for drinking or agriculture. Heavy metals from urban pollution are finding their way into the aquatic ecosystem, as are drug residues and nitrates from fertilizer use that can result in massive algal blooms. To date, there has been little to stop this accretion of pollutants and in closed systems such as lakes these pollutants are being concentrated with unknown long term effects.

While current solutions such as reverse osmosis exist, and are widely used in the water desalination of seawater, the water they produce is expensive. This is because high pressures are required to force the waster through a membrane and maintaining this pressure requires around 2kWh for every cubic meter of water. While this is less of an issue for countries with cheap energy, it puts the technology beyond the reach of most of the world’s population.

Graphene Company Stock: Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN:NASDAQ)

Carbon Sciences

Graphene Company: Carbon Sciences (CABN:NASDAQ)

Category: Graphene Production and Graphene Applications

Company Summary: Carbon Sciences, Inc., practices research and development of mass production of graphene from natural gas. The company has developed its own chemical vapor deposition process that is supposed to produce commercial size sheets of graphene for use in electrical and materials applications.
The company plans to license its technologies. They were previously known as Zingerang, Inc. but have since changed its name to Carbon Sciences, Inc. The organization was founded in 2006 and is based in Santa Barbara, California.

Current: Carbon Sciences has been able to explore procedures for the production of economical graphene, and now is engaged in the development of graphene applications such as ultra-high speed fiber optics for cloud computing. The company is manipulating the optical and electrical properties of graphene to create a new generation of fiber optics that are very fast, use little power, and cost less. Carbon Sciences is eager to use graphene in photodetectors, fiber lasers, and optical switches. The result the company hopes to achieve is enhanced Cloud based services with fewer limitations. Cloud services such as music streaming, movie and video streaming, e-commerce, and other cloud services could be launched into a new high speed generation.

Industrial Scale Production of Functionalised Graphitic Carbon Nanomaterials

Haydale, a leader in the development of enhanced graphene and nanoparticulate materials, has announced a collaboration with listed Australian technology materials development company, Talga Resources Ltd.

Haydale, a leader in the development of enhanced graphene and nanoparticulate materials, has announced a collaboration with listed Australian technology materials development company, Talga Resources Ltd.

Talga has a simple and cost effective process to liberate graphene and graphite directly from its 100% owned natural graphite ore deposits in Sweden. Talga is close to commencing trial production in Germany and once mining at full capacity, Talga expects to be one of the worlds’ largest nominal cost producers of graphene nano platelets (“GNPs”). As part of the collaboration, Talga and Haydale will jointly explore industrial scale business cooperation opportunities utilising Talga graphitic carbon nanomaterials, graphite and GNP’s value-added with Haydale’s proprietary low temperature plasma functionalisation treatment and end user demand chains.
