Can Cheap Graphene Save the World?

Dear Reader,

Google “graphene batteries” and one of the suggested questions that pops up about one-third of the way down the page is:

What is the problem with graphene batteries?

The answer appears directly underneath:

There is a big problem, though: Although scientists have demonstrated graphene-based batteries with performance characteristics far exceeding those of commercially available ones, the lack of feasible techniques for the mass production of high-quality graphene limits their potential for practical use.

Before we get into the problem, let's just go over the advantages, as they are indeed impressive.

With graphene stepping in for lithium as the key cathode material, the resulting batteries have proven to have up to 3 times the life span in terms of charge/discharge cycles, up to 2 times the overall energy density, and up to 70 times the charge speed.

That last statistic alone is enough to alter the world as we know it.

The Biggest Leap Forward in Materials Science Since the Advent of Carbon Steel

Just imagine charging your smartphone from 0% to 100% in 30 seconds or your electric vehicle in less than one minute.

With charge delay being among the biggest obstacles to adoption for prospective EV buyers, a battery with these capabilities would change the entire dynamic within an already evolving automotive industry.

Carmakers are already expecting at least half of their annual output to switch to all-electric by the end of the decade.

A 70x improvement in charge time would make charging quicker than fueling a conventional ICE vehicle at the pumps — a revolutionary innovation all by itself.

Add to that a range of upward of 1,000 miles and a life expectancy of over 1 million miles, and gas/diesel-powered vehicles would be relegated to obsolescence overnight.

However, let's not forget the problem. Graphene, which is one of the most advanced materials known to man, has been very expensive to produce.

How Graphene's Cost of Production Plummeted by 99%

Just seven years ago, the cited cost of production was $100,000 per kilogram. At that price, the average EV battery pack would cost close to $1 million just to manufacture.

And it's that hurdle that's had engineers scratching their heads for years.

Thankfully, one Australian company has finally solved the puzzle.

 

Using proprietary methodology, this Brisbane-based tech firm has managed to create highly customizable graphene using nothing but natural gas and electricity.

The result was a reduction in price of several orders of magnitude — enough, in fact, to allow for cost-viable mass production of graphene.

This company's primary and only focus is producing cheap graphene for a handful of specialized applications.

One of these applications, as you may have surmised by now, is a next-generation rechargeable battery.

This Isn't a Test

This isn't just some science experiment, either. This Australian company is cranking out test units of coin and pouch batteries as you read this, for in-depth evaluation by prospective corporate clients.

This time next year, they could well be shipping commercial versions to many of those same clients, raking in licensing and royalty fees for every unit delivered.

You would expect a company on the verge of disrupting a $70 billion/year industry to be valued in the billions of dollars, but in this case, that's far from the truth.

You see, while its innovations and products have the potential to completely ruin the lithium-ion sector, relatively few investors have ever heard of the company.

The result is that this patented process and the resulting products are valued at just pennies on the dollar. The company's stock, which is already public and trading on two major North American exchanges, puts its market capitalization at just a few hundred million dollars — which is maybe 1% of its long-term value.

I'd be willing to bet that if you mentioned this story to your friends, none of them would have any idea what you were talking about.

But now that you know, you also have the power to take advantage of this egregious inefficiency.

To learn more about the science, the patent, the batteries, and the company behind it all, I invite you to view my in-depth presentation.

I created this video for the benefit of my own readers, but with this story gaining momentum fast, I decided it was too valuable to keep a secret.
