About Graphite Innovation and Technologies

Graphite Innovation & Technologies Inc. (GIT) is a leading Canadian materials engineering firm focused on delivering disruptive uses for graphene and graphite ingredients.

Graphite Innovation & Technologies Inc. (GIT) works in partnership with its customers using its proprietary “bottom-up” process for the production of high specification graphene. Graphite Innovation & Technologies Inc. (GIT) owns the intellectual property and know-how behind this process. We provide dispersion and product integration expertise, to deliver solutions for a wide range of applications.

GIT Launches Pilot Program for Disruptive Marine Coating

Halifax, Nova Scotia — Graphite Innovation and Technologies Inc. (GIT) is pleased to announce that it has launched an international strategic pilot program for its innovative marine coating, GrapheneCoat™. The objective is to develop strengthened partnerships in new markets.

“We are very excited to offer this program to potential parties around the world,” said GIT co-founder Mo Algermozi. “There’s been a large interest from the international community and the program will allow us to fulfil that interest.”

The program is open to all parties searching for a disruptive marine coating that will reduce biofouling and corrosion.

GrapheneCoat™ is GIT’s innovative marine coating which utilizes graphene to create a formula that works to protect ship hulls from corrosion and biofouling. In turn, it helps to increase fuel efficiencies and the longevity of boat hulls. By discouraging the growth of organisms, the innovative coatings drastically improve the performance of a boat over its lifetime.

“GIT is positioning this program as an opportunity for collaboration with potential strategic partners, however big or small they may be,” explained GIT co-founder Marciel Gaier. “It will give us better insight into individual user needs and also gather important feedback as we launch GrapheneCoat™ commercially later this year.”

The pilot program is a strategic product development initiative for GIT and is not a sales program. GIT is offering successful recipients access to materials at a significantly reduced cost. The collection of testimonials and results data is expected.

How it Works

Applications are being accepted on an ongoing basis throughout 2018. Those selected for an interview will be contacted to learn more about individual needs and an assessment will be conducted.

Eligibility
  • Interest in partnering with an innovative materials technology company
  • Have a need for anti-biofouling and/or non-corrosive marine coatings
  • Passionate about reducing harmful toxins in the marine environment
  • Looking to reduce costs related to maintenance and/or fuel consumption (drag reduction)

GIT Co-Founder Speaking at Seminar Series in Newfoundland

Graphite Innovation and Technologies (GIT) co-founder, Marciel Gaier, is speaking tomorrow (February 27, 2018) at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Gaier is a guest speaker at the university’s Lunchtime Seminar Series event. He will be delivering an insightful lecture about environmentally friendly anti-fouling coatings, specifically GIT’s innovative GrapheneCoat™ product. Those in attendance will learn more about how GIT has used alternative approaches in materials science to address major issues in the marine coating industry.

GIT chosen for ocean and clean technology acceleration programs

Announced today, 27 businesses have received funding and mentorship through Innovacorp’s ocean technology and clean technology acceleration programs this fall — including Graphite Innovation and Technologies (GIT).

GIT co-founder Mo Algermozi was on hand for the announcement at the Technology Innovation Centre in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The event featured speeches from local elected government officials, including Member of Parliament Darren Fisher, who was speaking on behalf of Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency Minister Navdeep Bains.

GIT was awarded funding in two programs offered by Innovacorp — the Clean Tech Accelerate Program and the global competition, Blue Solutions Start-Up Challenge.

The CleanTech Accelerate Program helps Nova Scotia blue and green technology companies get investment ready. GIT will receive $40,000 in non-dilutive, non-repayable funding to address key technical and business milestones. In addition to the funding, GIT will get access to a series of acceleration activities and resources.

The Blue Solutions Start-Up Challenge is a competition to build on the increasing ocean technology development across our region and to ignite the start-up community in Nova Scotia. As a round one winner of Blue Solutions, GIT will receive $10,000 in non-dilutive, non-repayable funding and will pitch for the chance for another $50,000 in January 2018.

“Participating in Innovacorp’s ocean acceleration programs will push our company forward,” said Mr. Algermozi. “We are very excited to put this funding into action to help us refine our innovations and build even stronger products.”

GIT’s winning entries were aimed at further developing it’s disruptive marine product, GrapheneCoat™. GrapheneCoat™ is an anti-biofouling marine coating which utilizes graphene to create a formula that works to protect ship hulls from corrosion and biofouling, helping to increase fuel efficiency and the longevity of boat hulls. By discouraging the growth of organisms, this innovative coating drastically improve the performance of a boat over its lifetime.

It’s worth noting that GIT was the only cross winner selected, having been selected as a recipient in both the ocean tech and clean tech acceleration programs.

GIT was also selected for an interview with CBC Nova Scotia reporter Paul Withers after the announcement event. The segment will air during the local news broadcast at 6:00pm (AST) on CBC Nova Scotia.
