Graphene from slurry

Graphene from slurry

For those with an interest in these things there was a story on the Farming Programme this morning about a “world first” at Worthy Farm – home of the Glastonbury Festival –  which has teamed up with technology company LEVIDIAN to turn biomethane produced from slurry from the farm’s dairy herd into clean hydrogen and graphene. The company’s LOOP system uses electromagnetic waves to ionise methane into a plasma, allowing for the separation of hydrogen and carbon, in the form of the wonder nanomaterial graphene. The UK is a pioneer in the world of graphene research and the National Graphene Institute is based at Manchester University. According to LEVIDIAN, LOOP is a modular and scalable system that can be integrated with any infrastructure that produces and captures methane. The scope for its deployment in agriculture is therefore obvious and could turn the livestock sector into a significant producer of sustainable graphene.
