Evonik invests in graphene specialist SuperC

Specialty chemical provider Evonik has invested in Chinese graphene specialist SuperC

SuperC has developed a process to produce few-layer graphene (FLG) and pastes for electrodes in lithium-ion batteries. According to the company, the addition of graphene increases the electrical and thermal conductivity of the batteries for faster charging and better overall performance. The batteries also become temperature-sensitive. This saves on cooling requirements and reduces the risk of fire.

“By working with SuperC, we are expanding our technical know-how and our understanding of the highly dynamic market,” said Stefan Plass, Evonik’s head of the Interface & Performance business line. 

“China’s battery industry has logged rapid growth in recent years. With the investment, we create synergies in innovations for battery materials and thus support our local business development,” adds Fuliang Xia, President of Evonik Greater China.
