LOS ANGELES, July 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NetworkWire – Nanotech Energy Inc. (“Nanotech Energy” or the “Company”), the world’s top supplier of graphene, today announces it has been featured in the UCLA Technology Development Group’s July 2020 edition of Innovation Magazine, along with the Company’s Chairman and CEO Dr. Jack Kavanaugh and co-founder Dr. Richard Kaner, distinguished professor at the UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The Company is being recognized for its Energy Graphene Super Battery, which delivers a nonflammable, high-performing battery and is endorsed by Head of Electric at Daimler Mercedes.
“Our entire team is incredibly proud of our work and our UCLA affiliation,” Kavanaugh stated. “From a UCLA Energy Incubator to a recognized industry innovator, Nanotech Energy has developed game-changing graphene-based products – from conductive inks, conductive adhesives and electromagnetic shielding to safe and high-performance batteries.”
In May, Nanotech Energy announced the closing of its Round C funding, which was oversubscribed, on the announcement that the Head of Electric at Daimler Mercedes had endorsed the Company’s new graphene high-performance, nonflammable battery, which was in development for three years.
Dr. Kaner, who holds the first patent on graphene technology and is the co-founder of Nanotech Energy, added, “Graphene is one of the strongest known materials, is very flexible, and is an excellent conductor of electricity. Because graphene can withstand large changes in volume when combined with a nonflammable electrolyte, it offers high-performance and safe alternatives to currently used materials for a number of industries, as in battery storage.”
