The first grant for $350,000 is for the continued collaborative research and development of modification and scale-up of graphene for supercapacitor applications . The Company will work with the University of Waterloo to develop the supercapacitor. A supercapacitor made with graphene is very similar to a graphene lithium-ion battery, expect for the supercapacitor battery may have a higher rate of charge and discharge . The terms for the grant are divided over three years based on availability of funds; In addition to the funds provided by NSERC the Company will provide $100,000 per year to the University and $50,000 of in-kind support through the supply of materials, processing and engineering.
