JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Haydale, the group focused on the commercialisation of graphene and other nano particle products, announces that it has signed a non-binding collaboration term sheet with listed Australian technology materials development company, Talga Resources Ltd.
Talga has a simple and cost effective process to liberate graphene and graphite directly from its 100% owned natural graphite ore deposits in Sweden. Talga is close to commencing trial production in Germany and once mining at full capacity, Talga expects to be one of the worlds’ largest nominal cost producers of graphene nano platelets (“GNPs”). Pursuant to the collaboration, Talga and Haydale will jointly explore business cooperation opportunities through the supply of Talga graphitic carbon nanomaterials, graphite and GNP’s and testing thereof with Haydale’s value-add low temperature plasma treatment and end user demand chains.The collaboration provides the framework pursuant to which, Haydale and Talga can combine resources and expertise to accelerate graphene commercialisation opportunities and deliver superior technology material solutions to end users at industrial scales using Talga’s graphene and other graphitic carbon nano materials.The initial project will be for Haydale to analyse carbon nano material samples with a view to using those materials in various composite or ink research programmes and develop tailored finished or functionalised products that can be supplied to both Haydale and Talga’s end users or intermediaries for integration by them into their end use applications.Haydale anticipate this initial project will, over time, lead to additional projects with associated revenue streams.We have been talking to Talga for some time about its capabilities, their graphitic carbon nanomaterials, and the potential synergies the companies share. We wish to fully evaluate these materials and ascertain what difference our functionalisation process can make. In particular,with the arrival of its German operations and near term large samples, now is the right time to enter into a formal relationship, providing the framework for both parties to work together on a series of programs.”More information: www.haydale.com
