Thanks to the researchers at the University of Alberta for successfully turning hemp bio-waste into hemp graphene nanosheets. They have discovered that waste fibers from hemp can be highly useful in manufacturing energy storage devices like supercapacitors. Thus, hemp graphene is an exciting new innovative material that is every bit as amazing as it sounds!
Acknowledging the immense benefits and uses of Hemp Graphene, Hemp Organization has also taken forward the process of Hemp Graphene production. We have successfully completed the first phase of Hemp Graphene and we are here to share the insights of its uses and benefits with you that we discover in our research.
Hemp Graphene is a one-atom-thick carbon sheet where atoms are grouped in a honeycomb lattice nanostructure. It has incredible properties, including being the strongest material in the world.
This material has a tensile strength of 130 GPa along with a Young Modulus of 1 Tpa, which makes it 100 times more powerful than steel.
The extraction process of hemp graphene initiates with graphite because it’s one 1mm consists of 3 million layers of hemp graphene. Manufacturers use chemical exfoliation, mechanical exfoliation, chemical vapor deposition, pyrolysis, and much more.
Hemp Graphene has shown immense potential to scientists still there is a lot more left to explore. At present, we are seeing the use of hemp graphene in the following industries:
In terms of energy storage, hemp graphene has shown promising results. It can boost the energy storage capacity along with the charge rate in rechargeable batteries. You can even build inexpensive and flexible solar cells with hemp graphene electrodes.
Nanotechnology is booming at a great pace and with the support of hemp graphene, it will achieve great heights in biosensing, medicine, diagnostics, phototherapy, and more.
Being lightweight and flexible, it can be used as a composite to make other materials stronger. This way, companies can build more durable and long-lasting products. A broad use can be in the aviation industry, automobile, building materials, sports equipment, etc.
Hemp graphene is a sustainable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly material that resembles carbon-like graphene. Hemp graphene nanosheets are prepared out of lignin, hemicellulose, and crystalline cellulose. These are processed from the inner bark of the hemp plant, which is called bast fibers. They usually go to waste in the landfill but now, they are being recycled for energy storage devices.
The insulation properties of hemp fiber make them a very environmentally friendly material as well as making them an excellent sustainable building material compared to other materials such as bamboo. With the hemp graphene nanomaterials, it’s possible to design the following products:
We will be shortly launching Hemp Graphene under the Hemp Organization brand. We welcome all the Inquiries, Consultation and Booking applications from industries and business brands who are looking forward towards the purchase of hemp graphene for their related business purposes.
