BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSX-V:GMG) (“GMG” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update to the composition of the Company’s leadership, technical and projects teams intended to support and accelerate the Company’s next phase of development.

GMG believes there are important business opportunities related to GMG’s targeted ‘energy saving’ and ‘energy storage’ solutions, which continue to provide strong encouragement for the Company to invest resources to drive targeted sales from its energy saving business and support the continued maturation of GMG’s graphene-Aluminium Ion battery technology.

To better support and accelerate these opportunities the previously separate Technology and Projects teams will be combined into the Projects Team to better integrate the R&D of graphene production with development of the graphene production plant, the liquid graphene blend plant and the targeted development of the automated battery manufacturing pilot plant. This change is aimed at enhancing opportunities for improvement in process technology and project delivery and accelerate time to market for our future projects.

In connection with this change in team composition, GMG is pleased to announce that Bobby Bran has been promoted to the role of Chief Projects Officer, leading the combined Technology and Projects teams. Bobby has been with GMG for over 4 years most recently as Production Manager and Head of Major Projects. Mr Bran has over 10 years of experience delivering large-scale multi-million dollar civil engineering projects on behalf of several major contractors. Bobby has experience in a diverse range of disciplines with expertise in project leadership and management – including safety in construction.

Jeffrey Morris former Chief Technology Officer has left GMG to pursue other opportunities and the Company thanks him for his tireless efforts over the last two years to progress the automation and development of the graphene production process.

GMG’s CEO Craig Nicol stated, “I am very pleased to see Bobby promoted to the role of Chief Projects Officer leading the combined Projects and Technology teams. This new combined team will improve our engineering capability to deliver our future production assets.”

GMG’s Chair Guy Outen stated, “I congratulate Bobby on his promotion to Chief Projects Officer and look forward to his continuing strong leadership of a talented team to further leverage GMG’s technical capabilities to enhance and accelerate our commercial aspirations.”

About GMG

GMG is a clean-technology company which seeks to offer energy saving and energy storage solutions, enabled by graphene, including that manufactured in-house via a proprietary production process.

GMG has developed a proprietary production process to decompose natural gas (i.e. methane) into its elements, carbon (as graphene), hydrogen and some residual hydrocarbon gases. This process produces high quality, low cost, scalable, ‘tuneable’ and low/no contaminant graphene suitable for use in clean-technology and other applications. The Company’s present focus is to de-risk and develop commercial scale-up capabilities, and secure market applications.

In the energy savings segment, GMG has focused on graphene enhanced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (“HVAC-R”) coating (or energy-saving paint), lubricants and fluids. In the energy storage segment, GMG and the University of Queensland are working collaboratively with financial support from the Australian Government to progress R&D and commercialization of graphene aluminium-ion batteries (“G+AI Batteries”).

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSX-V:GMG) (“GMG” or the “Company”) is pleased to release results of heat transfer demonstrations of Aluminium coated with THERMAL-XR® (TXR) powered by GMG Graphene, compared to uncoated bare Aluminium.

The University of Queensland Materials Performance consultancy (“UQMP”) verified that GMG’s THERMAL-XR® when applied to aluminium reduces the surface temperature by approximately 15% in temperatures between 70C and 90C.

GMG’s experiment results are shown below. The same 10mm thick aluminium plate was divided into two parts, GMG’s THERMAL-XR® was applied to the top side of one half of the plate, while the other remained uncoated. The same heat source was applied to the underside of both adjacent plates simultaneously. Temperature measurements were then taken from the top and bottom sides of both plates as the heat source was cycled up and down.

Managing Director and CEO, Craig Nicol stated “This is a powerful demonstration of GMG’s THERMAL-XR®’s ability to increase the transfer of heat. The graphene-enhanced heat transfer properties of THERMAL-XR® are apparently outweighing the traditional insulating effect of coatings. GMG believes the ability to increase heat transfer with a simple application of the technically advanced GMG THERMAL-XR® can make a significant contribution to improved performance and efficiency while reducing energy demand in a wide range of applications.”

When the THERMAL-XR® coating was applied to the top side of the 10mm aluminium plate, more heat transfer was observed away from the common heat source (compared to the panel that had no coating). Furthermore, the non-coated underside of the coated panel – being the side directly exposed to the heat source – remained approximately 15% cooler than the heat-exposed side of the uncoated panel, within the temperature range of 70° C to 90° C.

 

GMG’s product demonstration shows THERMAL-XR® coating increases heat transfer when applied to aluminium.

THERMAL-XR® powered by the GMG Graphene coating system is a unique method of improving the conductivity of heat exchange surfaces, resulting in an efficiency improvement and a potential power reduction when applied to air conditioning condenser coils or other industrial processes needing heat transfer.

The performance of existing air conditioners can also be increased with THERMAL-XR® process fluids (PREP and ACTIVATE) which clean and remove corrosion on the coil before applying the THERMAL-XR® RESTORE.

Relevance to Heat Exchangers (in Air Conditioners and Industrial Applications)

GMG is undertaking further assessments on other metals used in heat transfer applications and at various temperature settings and will publish market updates from time to time on these.

GMG is a proud member of Stanford University’s Thermal and Fluid Sciences Affiliates Program (see 10th May 2022 Announcement) and will continue to work with UQMP on heat transfer data verification.

GMG is working with a number of companies globally to engage distributors and direct sales for the HVAC-R maintenance market. Furthermore, GMG is engaging with various companies for direct selling of THERMAL-XR® for industrial applications with high energy requirements, and high emissions – including oil and gas production, power generation, liquified natural gas production, mining, and mineral processing.

The progress between BAMS and GMG continued with a two-day workshop to progress the manufacturing and design for GMG’s Coin Cell production facility.

The workshop covered GMG requirements and gained insights from BAMS experience to enable customised manufacturing solutions for GMG’s Graphene Aluminium-Ion Battery in the Coin Cell format.

Both teams reviewed the Battery Development Centre’s current and future prototypes and discussed scaling mass production capabilities, production testing (moving from development to full scale production).

As GMG optimises the cell technology, BAMS will, in parallel, look to optimise production designs.

The aim is to have an FID in 2023 and production in 2024 (as per GMG’s press release dated 11/10/22 GMG’S Battery Update: Significant Battery Performance, Cell and Graphene Production Improvements).
