Russia has made a technological breakthrough: nanotube production launched

In 2014, without much hype in the information space, the Russian company OCSiAl launched a unique installation of Graphetron 1.0. So, in the Novosibirsk Academgorodok, the first production of carbon nanotubes in domestic Technology.


It is worth noting that this substance gives various materials truly fantastic properties. For example, adding only 0,1% nanotubes to aluminum can double its strength. In addition, the "black web" enhances thermal and electrical conductivity, and also performs other "miracles."

Despite the revolutionary properties of carbon nanotubes, no one was able to build a business on their production. Except Russia. The manufacture of the additive is very expensive (about $ 500 million per ton), but domestic technology can reduce costs by 75 times.

In 2018, the Graphetron 1.0 plant already synthesized up to 12 tons of the substance. At the same time, the entire volume of the "black web" is bought back for years to come, and most of the world's manufacturers of lithium-ion power supplies have begun mass production of components containing graphene nanotubes from OCSiAl.

Today, the growth in carbon supplement consumption is constrained by low supply. All over the world, only a Russian installation produces a high-quality and inexpensive product. However, despite the fact that our technology is protected by a patent, in order to avoid the appearance of competitors, OCSiAl decided to “play ahead of schedule” and launched another Graphetron 50 unit last week. The latter will be able to produce up to 50 tons of the substance per year.

As for OCSiAl, its value has already exceeded $ 1 billion. After that, the domestic manufacturer was ranked among the so-called "business unicorns" - rapidly growing young companies with a great future.

      And what bothers you? If the company belonged, for example, to Mordashov, what will change from this? It is important that the technology is available, and 90% of the world market is not a joke, especially since it is not a raw material export. It is not from the USA to buy composites. The main thing is that the patent abroad should not be taken away. winked

      And: I hope that each of you has a personal electric car, which "Soon will not budge" without Chubais nanotubes ....

      Perhaps with the advent of this production, you will have an electric car in the future. Technology has become more affordable for industrial applications. A kilogram of the product now costs about 500 thousand rubles (approximately, I didn’t bother with the calculations), try to multiply this amount by 75 and it becomes clear that there was no question of industrial production.

        Something I'm confused. 500 rubles per ton of prime cost. One new produces 000 tons or 000 kg.
        Divide (oh, I'm afraid) = 10 thousand rubles per kg. This is the cost of production. No more expensive than quality Pakistani sturgeon caviar. I did not pass the exam - maybe somewhere wrong? Moreover, I calculated, apparently, the cost abroad. If the Russian is 75 times cheaper, then 10 thousand: 75 = 133, (№) rubles. per kilogram. It is expensive? It’s better not to go to supermarkets, you will experience a shock, go around a wine-vodka one, there’s some kind of horror there.

          It has already been calculated, it is written below, there is no sense in recounting, it doesn’t matter. hi

        This is not a commodity export.

        Just the same 100% raw materials.
        And the production of two times more capacious and technologically advanced lithium batteries using these tubes is anywhere, but not in Russia. And capacious, high-current liion are 10 billion foreign currencies per year that fly by, or rather, into the British pocket. The condition for investment was to designate the production of final batteries in Russia. Anyway - the state should have “taken” this direction and, judging by the cost price, seized a significant market share in the wildly growing electric transport segment.
        By the way, I’ll go get the battery from the Chinese (alas) lion 10s5p, otherwise all my hands didn’t reach ...

          Raw materials are when they are mined and sold. Can you tell me where our graphene tube deposit is located? This, of course, is not a finished product, but the added value is already decent.

          And the production of two times more capacious and technologically advanced lithium batteries using these tubes is anywhere, but not in Russia. And capacious, high-current liion are 10 billion foreign currencies per year that fly by, or rather, into the British pocket.

          Not a fact, of course, but it may happen. I hope the gloomy forecast does not come true. The batteries themselves, judging by the news, are a decent thing.



          The condition for investment was to designate the production of final batteries in Russia.

          They invented the material itself, not the batteries. This is already good that they did. And why, then, the condition is not to expose immediately not the production of smartphones and electric vehicles? laughing In my opinion, you are slightly bent.

          Anyway, the state should have “taken” this direction and, judging by the cost price, seized a significant market share in the wildly growing electric transport segment.

          Just pick up the development? belay

            "Sit down" with investments, take the added value from investors from an unfriendly country to your country.
            And so it is necessary to act everywhere, in all technological areas, with high added value. Examples are India (made in India), Turkey (also localization), China (automobile giants, for example, simply go to all the Communist Party’s hotel resignedly))

              It is impossible. The remaining investors will run away. If you see that the neighbor invested, he worked, and when the result appeared, they said - "thank you" and "goodbye, then we ourselves." What would you do in their place?

              We also have localization, including in the production of automobiles. Mercedes recently built a factory, what - now pick it up?

      The place of registration is convenient for a company trading with foreigners. And is production also in Luxembourg or is it still in our country?

        The place of registration is convenient for a company trading with foreigners.

        For the convenience of trading abroad, firms open representative offices or even factories there.

        .. OCSiAl branches operate in Europe, the USA, Korea, China (Shenzhen, Shanghai), Hong Kong and Russia, and representative offices in Mexico, Israel, Japan, India, Australia, Germany and Malaysia. In addition to its own offices and representative offices, OCSiAl has partners and distributors in 45 countries.

        OCSiAl is a Luxembourg company, any lawyer will say that.
        And production, it is like a gopher. Today in Russia, and tomorrow it may be in Chile, North Korea or Antarctica - this is decided at the head office of the company, and not at the plant in Novosibirsk.

    RUSNANO remains a shareholder of OCSiAl with a share of 17,3%. Another 47% and voting control are among the founders of the startup - entrepreneurs Yuri Koropachinsky, Yuri Zelvensky and Oleg Kirillov, as well as academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Mikhail Predtechensky. In 2018, a British investor appeared in the company, which, like A&NN, acquired a share based on a business valuation of $ 1 billion, Forbes Koropachinsky said. He did not name and share the British partner.
    OCSiAl regional branches operate in Europe, the USA, Korea, China (Shenzhen, Shanghai), Hong Kong and Russia, and representative offices in Mexico, Israel, Japan, India, Australia, Germany and Malaysia.

    OCSiAl was originally and remains a Luxembourg company, and not from the lack of patriotism, ”Koropachinsky said. - We live in a global world and, in order to protect our intellectual property, we must operate in English law and structure our business in the interests of global consumers and global investors. For the same reason, for example, Yandex is a Dutch company. ”
    The head of OCSiAl noted that only about 2% of the company's products are consumed in Russia, another third is consumed by China, and half of the products are consumed by the USA and Europe. “Therefore, production will be located where there are major customers. We need different locations, large companies want to have deliveries from different countries. Now we are gathering investors to launch the first phase of the Luxembourg installation by 2022. "

    In general, you are all right, a great breakthrough))))
    That’s what Chubais has been referring to for about 5 years .... although he’s not particularly involved here, 17% of the shares.
    We (or they, in Luxembourg) have become monopolists in one position out of millions ....
    It remains only to learn to do the rest ourselves: light bulbs, batteries, electronics, composites and engines ....
