BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSX-V:GMG; FRA:0GF) (“GMG ” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has commissioned its graphene aluminium-ion batteries (“G+AI Batteries”) in pouch cell format and that the first G+Al battery pouch cells have been manufactured. With the addition of the pouch cell equipment to the existing pilot production and testing plant (“Battery Pilot Plant”), GMG now has operationalised the Battery Development Centre (“BDC”) to enable the productization of this technology for a wide variety of applications.

GMG’s Managing Director and CEO, Craig Nicol, commented: “The commissioning of our pouch cell manufacturing equipment is another important milestone for GMG. It allows us to capitalise on the experience already gained with coin cell development and testing to open the avenues for our technology to a much broader application base. Much of the interest from prospective customers lies in our ability to productize the pouch cell, which can be found in a large range of end products ranging from personal and industrial appliances to grid batteries and EVs.”

“Having our own fully equipped and staffed Battery Development Centre will further enhance our ability to co-innovate with partners that continue to express strong interest in the initial performance results and future potential of G+AI Batteries” Nicol said.

As previously announced, subject to successful commercial prototypes and a final investment decision, GMG aims to construct an initial commercial coin cell G+AI Battery manufacturing facility, followed by first production and sales of G+AI Batteries with the development of G+AI Batteries in pouch cell format occurring in parallel in the Battery Development Centre. The location of this initial commercial manufacturing facility is not yet decided but will likely be in Australia where GMG’s headquarters and existing operations are located.

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – December 22nd, 2021 – Graphene Manufacturing Group Ltd. (TSX-V:GMG; FRA:0GF) (“GMG” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its graphene aluminium-ion batteries (“G+AI Battery”) 2032 type coin cell prototypes (see Figure 1) have been sent to a number of prospective customers around the world.

Coin cell testing to date has demonstrated that the GMG 2032 type G+AI Battery coin cell prototypes are fully rechargeable in several seconds, retain capacity for several thousand charge and discharge cycles, are non-flammable, and are relatively non-toxic and almost fully recyclable. These characteristics compare favourably against typical rechargeable Lithium-Ion 2032 type coin cells which take 3-6 hours to recharge, are toxic and can be quite harmful if ingested, are difficult to recycle, are flammable under certain conditions, and degrade more rapidly in performance.

Figure 1: GMG 2032 1.7V Prototype

GMG is pleased to report that further battery development, in collaboration with the University of Queensland, has increased the capacity of the G+AI Battery coin cells, when compared to earlier proof of concept prototypes. The Company is also currently in the process of developing the technology required to increase the voltage of the coin cell from approximately 1.7 Volts to 3.4 Volts – making the G+AI Battery better suited for interchangeable use in existing everyday personal devices. In addition to graphene manufactured by GMG, the Company also continues to test different grades of graphene from various sources for use in G+AI Batteries. GMG considers the performance characteristics of these prototypes clear enough to engage potential customers and industry partners for feedback on their commercial potential following subsequent further development.

GMG’s CEO and Managing Director Craig Nicol said: “We are very pleased with the technical and commercial progress we have made to date on our G+AI Batteries, and with the level of interest received from potential customers. We look forward to customer feedback on these prototypes, and to progressing towards the commercialisation of this impressive battery technology. In parallel we will continue to optimise and improve performance in our newly commissioned pilot plant and start to develop pouch pack formats during 2022 in addition to the coin cell.”
