Unlocking Graphene Potential Through Integrated Products
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom D
14:20 - 14:40
The commercialisation of graphene has been stymied to date by the inability of end users to easily integrate raw graphene powders and dispersions. Talga's approach is to produce 'fit for purpose' graphene products tuned for easier integration and faster adoption. Additionally, with the benefits and scale of full vertical integration, production costs may be driven below existing carbon materials such as CNT's and synthetic graphite, to provide stronger incentive for adoption and reach large volume markets in coatings, batteries, polymer composites and concrete/construction. Our integrated scale up ready strategy and recent graphene enhanced products are presented.
Mr Thompson has over 20 years experience in the mineral industry, and is the founder and Managing Director of ASX-listed Talga Resources Ltd. In 2011 he led Talga to Sweden, to discover the highest grade graphite resource in the world, and since then has managed development to enable bulk scale production of graphene in a ground breaking and extremely cost effective way. The graphene produced is of a high quality and suitable for a range of large volume composite, additive and technology applications.
He is a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, the Society of Economic Geologists, and is Guest Professor of Mineral Exploration Technology at Chengdu University of Technology and Southwest University of Science and Technology in China.
Talga is a high tech materials company with its own source of integrated supply from multiple advanced high grade graphite projects in northern Sweden. The flagship project "Vittangi" is at development stage and like all the projects, benefits from established high quality infrastructure including low cost power, road, rail and ports.
