Grafoid and Hydro Quebec have jointly filed a patent for new technology that could potentially have a large impact on the energy industry. The inventors have successfully formed a uniform composite containing carbon-coated lithium metal phosphate with Mesograf™, which is a graphene composition obtained from natural graphite. The material will be useful in storing and conducting energy.
As quoted in the press release:
A new provisional patent application was filed July 10, 2013 by Gearhart Law for inventors Karim Zaghib, Gordon Chiu, Abdelbast Guerfi, and Amélie Forand. The application describes a new composition using a type of graphene. This novel material will be important for the energy industry, in everything from alternative energy storage and transmission to improved consumer products.
