HydroGraph and EMP Shield to Collaborate on Graphene-based EMI Shielding

HydroGraph Clean Power has announced its collaboration with Kansas-based EMP Shield Inc., a company focused on protecting devices from destructive electromagnetic interference. Under this collaboration, the HydroGraph and EMP Shield are developing advanced electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding using HydroGraph’s high-purity graphene.

Electronic equipment can be protected from EMI by conductive or absorptive materials and coatings. HydroGraph and EMP Shield are working together to develop coatings and insulated barriers to protect electronic devices by blocking unwanted disruptions or transmission of electronic data.

“It is an exciting opportunity to be the first company to utilize graphene-enhanced EMI coatings,” said Tim Carty, EMP Shield’s founder and lead engineer. “This fits well with our product offerings and will benefit the goals of our new $1.9 billion, gallium nitride microchip foundry being built near Burlington, Kansas, expected to be completed by the end of 2026.”

EMP Shield has the support from the State of Kansas to apply for funding via the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act, part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to advance U.S. economic and national security as they relate to the technology sector.

“EMI shielding is just one of the many critical uses we are discovering for graphene,” said Stuart Jara, HydroGraph’s CEO. “EMI interference with your TV or smartphone might be an inconvenience, but interference with a bank account, pacemaker or military facilities would be extremely detrimental. The prospect of HydroGraph’s graphene fortifying the devices that make our world run is truly exciting.”
