HydroGraph Clean Power Inc., previously known as Carbon-2D Graphene Inc. is a Vancouver based company that was formed in 2017 to fund and commercialize a green, cost-effective process to manufacture quality graphene at industrial scale and to create customized graphene solutions for specific applications. The “detonation method” used to produce graphene was discovered by Kansas State University and patented shortly after. This method produces synthetic graphene that is 99.8% pure by detonating acetylene and oxygen in the precisely controlled environment of a custom-built chamber. As HydroGraph uses hydrocarbon gases as a feedstock this method is a “bottom up” approach, allowing for total control and a virtual absence of impurities. Most other production methods are “top down”, meaning they use naturally occurring graphite as a feedstock and exfoliate the mineral to create nanoparticles.

Further experimentation unveiled the production of hydrogen gas using the detonation method. Methane, oxygen and a larger, re-envisioned detonation chamber resulted in syngas, which then undergoes a secondary process to separate the pure hydrogen gas. Like the graphene production chamber, the process is energy efficient and produces hydrogen for far less than current market prices. Both HydroGraph chambers were created to be used in a decentralized manner, with remote access and net zero emissions. HydroGraph retains worldwide exclusive rights to commercialize the patented KSU detonation method and by extension, graphene and hydrogen gas.
