Production of High Value Graphene from Coal
Ohio University Center for Electrochemical Engineering, OH, United States
This process enables the use of coal as the raw material for graphene synthesis. Coal is a cheaper alternative than graphite and methane. Based solely on raw material costs this technology will by several orders of magnitude lower cost than from graphite and methane).
Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The Coal to Graphene process addresses technical and economics obstacles (cost and reliability) that inhibit graphene’s market growth and acceptance.
