Global Graphene Group Adds Second REACH-Certified Product

Posted By Graphene Council, Friday, March 20, 2020
Global Graphene Group (G3) has finalized certification for its second product with the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).

G3’s Gi-PW-B050 (N002-PDR), a high-density single layer of graphene oxide with low oxygen content on its surface and high surface area, has achieved the REACH certification. G3 is registered with REACH to ship one to 10 metric tons of its N002-PS product into the EU annually with C.S.B. GmbH., the only representative for G3 in the EU. The REACH certification for this product secures G3 the right to market the product in Europe.

REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals. REACH establishes procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.

G3 is also a proud member of the REACH graphene consortium, taking an active role in how graphene solutions are handled in Europe.

“The addition of this product being REACH certified will help us ramp up our business in Europe,” said Adam Quirk, Global President of Taiwan Graphene Company for G3. “I’m proud of our team’s continued work and focus to get more of our products REACH certified.”

GRAPHENE MANUFACTURER CONSOLIDATES BATTERY ORGANIZATIONS, MAKES LEADERSHIP PROMOTIONS

Posted By Graphene Council, Friday, March 13, 2020
Global Graphene Group (G3) announces the consolidation of Angstron Energy Company (AEC) into Honeycomb Battery Company (HBC), effective February 28, 2020. G3 is the holding company for both organizations, in addition to Taiwan Graphene Company (TGC) and Nanotek Instruments. This structure change brings the world-class energy storage and battery R&D and manufacturing expertise from both AEC and HBC together under one leader, Dr. Aruna Zhamu, G3 co-founder and HBC President.

“The combination of these two businesses will create a powerful energy storage and battery products company with some of the best technology and products in the market,” said John Davis, G3 Chief Operating Officer. “With the good leadership of Dr. Aruna Zhamu as HBC’s Global President, the future is very exciting.”

“We’re primed for rapid development and commercialization of our energy and battery products with the combined resources and expertise under HBC,” said Dr. Aruna Zhamu. “Bringing our Si anode and current collectors to market is a priority for HBC for 2020. I look forward to continuing to lead this team and growing our business.”

G3 is pleased to announce additional leadership changes. Adam Quirk, formerly VP of Business Development, has been promoted to TGC Global President. In this new role, Quirk will manage G3’s TGC organization, which manufacturers graphene raw materials, thermal management products and nanocomposite products. Stuart Blair, formerly Director of Finance, was promoted to Vice President of Finance. Bob Crouch, formerly Director of IP, was promoted to Vice President of Legal Affairs. These promotions round out the company’s executive leadership team.

“These key leadership changes position G3 to accomplish our strategic goal of expanding our manufacturing of battery and thermal management solutions and continuing to grow our market share,” said Dr. Bor Jang, G3 Chief Executive Officer. “We have a strong leadership team in place who will take G3 to the next level.”
