Graphene Pioneer overview
Founded by Michel de Ruiter, a practical pioneer in the application and production of graphene in materials with an emphasis on concrete
Decades of experience in material and, more recently, the addition of graphene in numerous applications and functionalities
Graphene pioneer has created and proven demo product and concrete material, ready for scaling in production with graphene
Vision and values
Mission: Our mission is to impact people and planet by unleashing the possibilities in the unchartered material production space with graphene
Vision: we aim to harness the potential of graphene to create a better world through enhanced concrete.This concrete is twice as strong and can reduce the global CO2 emissions by 4%. This concrete can be used for safer structures and can incorporate other properties such as heating, sensing, conductivity etc.
Values: Our team is guided by the core values of passion, precision and responsibility
Problem and Challenge
1.615.000.000 mton/yr 2000
3.270.000.000 mton/yr 2010
4.370.000.000 mton/yr 2020
4.830.000.000 mton/yr 2030
[the same concrete that kept our houses safe for millennia] [now causes 7% of man-made carbon dioxide emissions]
[now challenges our planet with ever more extreme weather ] [needing ever more concrete to keep structures safe]
Graphene reinforced concrete estimated to be 2+ times as strong and 4x water resistant as a result reducing 1/2 concrete use and reducing up to 4% of global emissions more sustainable production process
Results - Tests - Benefits
Eco impact value engineering
Test results show 145% compressive strength improvements 80% flexural strength improvements following our proprietary process adding treated graphene to concrete
Benefits include signficant CO2 reduction - economical construction - faster initial curing - safer structures - scalable process - worldwide application
The positive impact of graphene and it's potential are limitless
Graphene can make concrete and plastics conductive. It can strengthen concrete and plastics. It can react to light, detect minute differences in colors, bend light in different wavelengths. Just to name a few properties needed to detect explosives.
It's Official: Atmospheric CO2 Just Exceeded 415 ppm For The First Time in Human History
"Not just in recorded history, not just since the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago. Since before modern humans existed millions of years ago. We don't know a planet like this."
A concrete CO2 story
If you are able to make concrete twice as strong with graphene you would also reduce the emission of CO2 connected to the making of concrete by half. This could mean a giant reduction of 4% CO2 emission in total worldwide. If you just sold graphene for this purpose it would already be a several billion dollar industry
But we need graphene in more applications! Concrete walls could be used as heating elements, sensors, insulation and the same goes for plastics. This technology could give us inks and paints that would not fade in centuries, and protect structures from corrosion, fires, etc.
Are you ready to join us and revolutionize the construction industry and reduce CO2 at the same time?
We look forward to speaking with you to explore and jointly make a lasting Eco impact in the construction industry.
