(Yicai Global) March 31 -- the combined application of graphene and new energy holds forth expansive prospects, and he has absolute confidence in the future of graphene + new energy, a Chinese executive in the graphene industry said.
"The combination of graphene, lithium ion batteries and super capacitors is the hottest combination at present," said Wang Zhonghui, deputy manager of Dongxu Optoelectronic Technology Co. [SHE:000413] at a seminar in Beijing yesterday, China Network reported.
He also said graphene's use in improving optoelectronic conversion efficiency in solar batteries and wind and tidal power generation and electric heating were all representative of graphene's applications in the new energy industry.
"Thus far, the company has set up a complete industrial chain, from graphene, positive and negative material coated by graphene, graphene-based ion batteries, to new energy vehicles," Wang said.
"We recently also realized some achievements with graphene applied in LED lighting. After using graphene, light efficiency greatly improved with good radiation, and this also realized small-scale industrialization. These applications may all map out the future direction of graphene industrialization," Wang added.
He thinks that developments in recent years have successively introduced and launched the results of graphene application. Thus, now is not only the key time to develop graphene -- from laboratory to industrialization -- but is also the golden period for investment planning in the graphene industry.
