NanoXplore Inc. has been recognized as the 2019 winner of the IDTechEx Graphene & 2D Materials Award for the Most Significant Advancement in Graphene, CNT, or 2D Material for Commercialization.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by IDTechEx as a global leader in the commercialization of graphene. This award further validates our graphene technology and why we are in the process of building a 10,000 tonnes/year production facility,” says Soroush Nazarpour, CEO and president of NanoXplore. “The construction of the facility is on time and budget, and we expect phase one of commissioning to occur during calendar Q1 of next year (2020). We are proud of everyone in our team and thank them for their diligent effort as we thrive to enable graphene to become a viable solution for high-volume commercial applications.”
The award was handed out at the recent IDTechEx Show in Berlin, Germany, a two-day exhibition where some 200 exhibiting companies from 60 countries present the latest emerging technologies across multiple emerging technology sectors that include 3D Printing, Electric Vehicles, Energy Harvesting, Energy Storage, Graphene, Internet of Things, Off Grid Energy Independence, Printed Electronics, Sensors & Wearable Technology.
Headquartered in Montreal, Que., NanoXplore is a graphene company, a manufacturer and supplier of high-volume graphene powder for use in industrial markets. The company also provides standard and custom graphene-enhanced plastic and composite products to various customers in transportation, packaging, electronics, and other industrial sectors. It has nearly 400 employees supporting manufacturing facilities across Canada, the U.S., and Switzerland.
“NanoXplore’s bold scale-up of graphene production should finally tear down the idea that graphene is just too expensive to be used as an additive in polymer composites for real-world applications,” stated one of the judges.
The next IDTechEx Graphene & 2D Materials award ceremony will be held in Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, Calif. on November 18-19.
