Our GrapheneBlack™ technology allows our customers to select a more sustainable option compared to carbon black without sacrificing performance or cost.
Sustainability has multiple definitions within various applications and industries. For most companies, sustainability is viewed as a generic Corporate Social Responsibility initiative that covers a broad spectrum of values but lacks the alignment and execution of its internal resources.
At NanoXplore, we empower and partner with our employees to support growth and provide the tools needed to go beyond the ordinary to innovate and provide meaningful sustainable solutions that are measurable. We have intentionally embedded this philosophy within the heart of our Vision, Mission, and Values of the company.
Our greatest strength is at the core of our clean-technology
PROVIDING A GREENER ALTERNATIVE
Most carbon-based materials, like carbon black, are not naturally produced in the environment; they are manufactured by the controlled vapour-phase pyrolysis and partial combustion of gaseous or liquid hydrocarbons. The negative environmental footprint from this process cannot be ignored.
NanoXplore produces graphene through a mechano-chemical process that involves natural flake graphite, water, and hydroelectricity.
RECYCLABILITY OF PLASTICS
In general, there is a misconception about the recyclability of plastics. For most plastics, they are no-longer recyclable after one use. NanoXplore’s GrapheneBlack™ technology allows for the recyclability of plastic to continue beyond one cycle when adding a small amount of graphene without sacrificing product performance. Our technology provides a unique value proposal and a real sustainable benefit to our customers within the plastics industry.
The use of water is a critical component to our graphene technology process. In order to minimize the amount of water consumed in our new production facility, NanoXplore will install a waste-water treatment facility. This equipment ensures that the water used in our manufacturing process will continually be re-used throughout our production cycles, dramatically reducing our local environmental impact.
