20 • August 2019 A memorandum of understanding sets the stage for GrapheneCA, a New York-based commercial scale producer of graphene, to design an extruder and mixing system that could be embedded into the 3D-printing equipment of Apis Cor Co., San Francisco. Graphene is an advanced carbon agent emanating from nanotechnology and exhib- its strong potential as an admixture for high performance concrete. "Our planned collaboration with Apis Cor demonstrates our ded- ication to integrate graphene into the real world using cutting edge technologies," says GrapheneCA Head of Business Development David Robles. "Imagine being able to print a 2,500-sq.-ft. home in a day, for less than $8,000; or envision a mobile 3D printer that can solve current construction bottlenecks. Our discussions with Apis Cor could lay the groundwork for making 3D printed graphene a standard material in the construction process." "Material science is huge area of construction 3D printing and requires extensive R&D work. New materials and advanced proper- ties will open new horizons," adds Apis Cor CEO Nikita Cheniuntai. "Collaborating with GrapheneCA brings us closer to disrupting 3D printing materials for construction."
