VANCOUVER — HydroGraph Clean Power Inc., a commercial manufacturer of nanomaterials and alternative-energy fuels, has announced a time horizon for commercial scale production at its Manhattan, KS manufacturing plant.

The Company has targeted Q3 2022 for commercial scale, leveraging manufacturing technology developed at Kansas State University and kicking off a five-year plant expansion and job creation plan for the Manhattan region.

HydroGraph technology manufactures products such as the super-material graphene used in dozens of industries and alternative-energy fuels. Their technology — the Hyperion detonation system — is reportedly ideal for commercial scale: compact and modular, with the small footprint allowing for deployment virtually anywhere. The Company’s initial go-to-market product of graphene, with hydrogen production process in development, marks the beginning for a platform of products in the advanced materials and energy spaces.

Ranjith Divigalpitiya, chief science officer of HydroGraph, said locating the manufacturing close to the R&D was a strategic choice. “The close proximity of our manufacturing facility to our research partners at Kansas State University will help us maintain our competitive advantage with a virtuous cycle between our commercial production and continuing R&D.”

HydroGraph plans to explore the possibility of expanding beyond its existing building in Pottawatomie County to a larger production facility and creating high-paying jobs in the Manhattan region over the next five years. K-State Innovation Partners and Manhattan’s Knowledge Based Economic Development, or KBED, partnership facilitated the company’s manufacturing presence in the region.
