Global Li-Ion Graphite Engages BEGO Technologies to Test Process its Graphite to Graphene
Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / December 15, 2017 - Global Li-Ion Graphite Corp. ("LION" or, the "Company") (CSE: LION) is pleased to announce that the Company has received graphite samples from its Ambato-Arana Graphite mine in Madagascar and has forwarded the samples to BEGO Technologies to be processed through their proprietary system that processes Graphite to Graphene using a patented membrane/microbe technology.
ABOUT BEGO TECHNOLOGIES
BEGO, an acronym for Bio Electro Chemical Graphene Oxide, is an ecofriendly peer reviewed PCT patent pending process ("Process") that uses Mother Nature's naturally occurring microbes to produce Graphene Oxide from graphite. Graphene Oxide is a precursor to producing Graphene. Commercialization of the Process is being advanced under the direction of Dr. Jin, the Process Co-Inventor in collaboration with experts at Colorado State University, BEGO's priority is to become a low cost high value producer of engineered graphene materials, one of which is dedicated to advancing the next generation graphene based electrode for energy storage.
About the Malagasy Graphite Property
The three mining exploitation licenses that comprise the Project are located in the vicinity of Andasibe in Toamasina Province in Madagascar, 20 km to the southwest of Sheritt's Ambatovy nickel/cobalt laterite open pit mine, and 200km via road from the seaport of Toamasina, Madagascar's main port.The licenses total 4,375 hectares (10,811 acres). Graphite was produced on the licenses for roughly a century from 1910. The production to date has been free digging of lateritic ore and open pit mining, providing low cost exploitation without need for blasting.
