China has established a National Institute of Metrology for Materials Industry at two metrology institutes in Shenzhen and Beijing, at the China Metrology Research Institute in Shenzhen, and the Beijing Measure Detection Science Academy. They will focus on standardization and quality assurance of graphene materials and provide reference materials. In China, more than 10 listed […]

18-10 CAS DICP develops high-performance phototermal conversion graphene composite material

The group of SHI Quan at the CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, has developed a graphene-based composite phase change material with high light-to-heat conversion efficiency. The composite phase change material has a high loading capacity (95wt%), can maintain a stable phase change enthalpy (162.8J/g) after 1000 heat and cold cycles, and shows excellent phase […]

15-10 China increases carbon fibre production

According to Japanese sources, China’s market for carbon fibers is around 50,000 t, of which over 60% is imported. As a result of the rapidly increasing demand for this material for lithium battery separators and the photovoltaic industry in China, Chinese companies are now increasingly entering the production. For example, Zhongfu Shenying, a subsidiary of […]

11-10 CAS DICP enables production of green hydrogen at MW level using an electrolyser with proton-exchange membrane (PEM).

Since the 1990s, the Dalian Institute of Chemical Technology (DICP) has carried out R&D on PEM-based electrolysis technology, and has developed several generations of electrolyzers for hydrogen production. The current system has a rated hydrogen production of 220Nm3/h and a peak hydrogen production of 275Nm3/h. A megawatt-level hydrogen production and fuel cell power generation system […]
