Graphene and graphene oxide are the world’s thinnest, strongest and most conductive materials that are yet discovered till date, that have the huge potential for industrial water filtration applications. However, the difficulty in manufacturing processes and high production costs have to date severely limited their commercialisation. During the past 18 months, both the companies together have successfully developed a process for the manufacturing of high purity graphene oxide to create a highly efficient graphene nanofiltration membrane (GO-Membrane). GO-Membrane can deliver significant benefits due to their high water flux, tunability and non-fouling properties. The advantages of the membranes over existing commercially available membrane technologies comprises of the better water recovery, increased flow, and lower energy costs. Currently, spiral membranes, such as reverse osmosis and nanofiltration are in use currently. The spiral membrane market is projected to be USD 5.10 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to USD 8.20 billion by 2023. GO-Membrane could replace the existing technology and can create opportunities for new water filtration applications. Moreover, Ionic will grant a sub-licence of its GO technologies to JV Co in the field of water purification. Both companies will fund pro-rata expenditure in JV Co for the development and commercialization of the technology. Meanwhile, CLQ stock has fallen 48.94% in three months as on September 25, 2018.
