Maxwell Technologies to investigate use of graphene in energy storage products
Company to receive approximately euro 325,000 for its part of three-year program.
Maxwell Technologies, Inc. reported that its Swiss subsidiary will integrate and evaluate graphene-based electrode material produced through a European Union (EU)-funded technology development program entitled, ElectroGraph.
"Maxwell will lend its expertise in ultracapacitor fundamentals and technology development to gain insight into the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of using graphene as a commercial-scale electrode material," said Michael Everett, Maxwell's vice president and chief technology officer. "This will be the first industrial evaluation of this material at the device level. If it is successful, it will enable Maxwell to establish a leadership position in development of a new generation of high-performance ultracapacitor products."
