Coal Seam Gas Site Uses Graphene-Enhanced Geotextiles

A coal seam gas facility in Australia has become the site of the world’s second commercial-scale use of graphene-enhanced geotextiles. The product utilizes Imagine Intelligent Materials’ imgne® X3 coating, which is applied to Geofabrics Australasia’s bidim C geotextile. The Queensland CSG operation installed 10,000 m2 of the graphene-enhanced geotextile, which enables the the detection of holes in... »
