GMG is a clean-tech, disruptive company that produces graphene and hydrogen by cracking methane (natural gas) instead of mining graphite. By use of the company’s proprietary process, GMG can produce high quality, low cost, scalable, ‘tuneable’ and no/low contaminant graphene – enabling demonstrated cost and environmental improvements in a number of world-scale planet-friendly/clean-tech applications. Using this low input cost source of graphene, the Company is developing value-added products that target the massive energy efficiency and energy storage markets.
The Company is also in the early stages of pursuing additional opportunities for GMG graphene including the development of next generation batteries, collaborating with world leading universities in Australia, and investigating the opportunity to enhance the performance of biodiesel and diesel fuels.
