German-based SGL Carbon Group and the US Oak Ridge National Laboratory plan to explore new graphite and carbon materials through a cooperative research and development agreement.

At a signing ceremony at the laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tenn., Dr. Klaus Warning, Member of the Executive Committee of SGL responsible for Technology said, “”SGL and Oak Ridge National Laboratory believe that the relationship will build on each other’s strengths, creating synergies that will lead to a greater understanding of the properties of carbon and graphite materials and to the development of novel and exciting new products.””

ORNL’s novel processing technology and state-of-the-art analytical capabilities will be combined with SGL’s graphite expertise to develop new, high-strength, high-temperature materials for a variety of industrial applications. In a second aspect of the joint program, ORNL’s carbon-based molecular sieves will be combined with SGL’s fibers and advanced materials technology to develop new carbon-based structures for environmental applications, particularly for the adsorption and separation of greenhouse gases.
