American Graphite Technologies Inc. ("AGIN" or the "Company") and announces the receipt of the project abstract from Mr. D.V. Vynogradov (SPE RESST KIPT) project manager of the scientific team at the Kharkiv Institute of Physics & Technology ("KIPT") in Kharkiv, Ukraine.
The project, called P-600, will research the properties of nanocarbon contained matter (graphene) as working material for 3D printing. The project will be a partnership between AGIN, Science and Production Establishment "Renewable Energy Sources and Sustainable Technologies" ("RESST") National Science Center "KIPT" National Academy of Science of Ukraine and Institute of Solid State Physics and Material Science National Science Center "KIPT" National Academy of Science of Ukraine.
The scientific team will consist of 8 scientists (1 Prof., D.Sc, 2 PhD's; 3 former weapons scientists and 2 PhD student) including Mr. Vynogradov. The expertise of the team will include the fields of nanotechnology, 3D printing, solid state physics, physical materials and thermal physics.
In the abstract received by the Company, Mr. Vynogradov noted, "The perspective scope of research as we think are thin films and extremely small-scale objects with nano and micro-meter dimensions. Thus, we plan to pay special attention to the research with creating the graphene objects into nano and micro-meter typical size."
The Company is waiting for the final approval from the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and Science and Technology Centre in Ukraine ("STCU") which is expected to be released within two weeks.
The 3-D printing market is anticipated to grow to $5.2 Billion by the year 2020. http://www.forbes.com/sites/tjmccue/2012/03/27/3d-printing-industry-will-reach-3-1-billion-worldwide-by-2016/
