New project, GRAPHTED - Thermoelectric materials for waste heat recovery using Graphene
European Thermodynamics is pleased to announce that our new project Graphted has begun. This is an exciting project for the company as we will be working with the world-renowned material, graphene and the very University that discovered it! Manchester University are the world-leaders in graphene research and we are delighted to be working with them on this pioneering project.
Graphted will develop thermoelectric materials and incorporate them into high temperature thermoelectric generators (TEG’s) These TEG’s could be used in automotive engines to capture waste heat from engine exhausts and convert the thermal energy into electricity, improving fuel consumption and reducing pollution levels and CO2 emissions.
Graphene based materials have shown high electrical conductivity at the nanoscale. It is the world’s first 2D material, it is also 200 times stronger than steel but incredibly flexible. The possibilities of Graphene are very exciting and we are pleased to be exploring the thermoelectric potential of the material.
