Green graphene and carbonized lignin
Publicerat 2 mars, 2021
Once again, we are dipping our toes into the world of lignin. The possibilities are great, and the solutions are many. This time we get acquainted with lignin-based carbons and graphene.
During a one-hour webinar Omid Hosseinaei, a researcher working on lignin-based materials at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, will give a presentation on carbonized materials from lignin. We will also get to know about Bright Day Graphene and their “green graphene” produced from lignin.
– Graphene can be described as a material of the future. With its outstanding thermal and electrical conductivity, it has the potential to revolutionize the material market, says Anna Carlsson, CTO, Co-Founder of Bright Day Graphene.
The benefits of Graphene are many; it is super strong, flexible, transparent, and has the highest electrical conductivity in a material known today. In perfect graphene, the electrical resistance can be as low as zero. It is also a 2D-material. It has only one layer of molecules. This makes it super thin, which gives it a very high surface but very low volume. This characteristic is what makes graphene so interesting for applications within energy storage and electronic applications.
Lignin is an attractive renewable precursor for manufacturing different carbonized materials due to its high carbon content. It has been studied for manufacturing a broad range of carbonized materials such as activated carbon, different types of carbon fibers, carbon foams, carbon black, and graphene. Here, a summary on the application of lignin in carbonized materials will be presented by Omid Hosseinaei a researcher working on lignin-based materials at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
Green Graphene for High Tech Applications- Graphene made from Lignin
What is green graphene, what can it be used for and what are the future possibilities? Anna Carlsson, CTO, Co-Founder at the start-up company Bright Day Graphene AB tells their story of how they developed the super material graphene from lignin. You will also get to know about the start-ups plans for scaling up and market launch.
