    Curved Graphene Technology

    German quality from the global technology leader in high-performance energy storage.

    An important factor in the performance advantage of the Supercapacitors is the nanotechnology research on Curved Graphene, the raw material patented by our partner. The patented Curved Graphene carbon material gives the Supercapacitors superior power and energy density, and this advantage is transferred to the Supercapacitor modules and systems.

    Our partner manufactures its own Curved Graphene Carbon raw material. This significant production step takes place in Germany, in the world's largest production facility for this purpose. Furthermore, our partner produces the Supercapacitor cells, modules and systems to stringent quality standards for the defence and aerospace markets.
