HALIFAX, Nova Scotia - Oct. 17, 2023 - PRLog -- As the 2024 Halifax Business Awards approach, it's clear that Halifax is emerging as a global powerhouse in the graphene space. Highlighting this ascendance, two of the five finalists for the prestigious Innovative Business of the Year category are graphene R&D firms based in Dartmouth: Graphite Innovation & Technologies (GIT) and Nova Graphene.

A leading sustainable coatings company, GIT is known for its cutting-edge graphene-based, EEXI compliant hull and propeller coatings. These sustainable, biocide-free marine coatings enable ship owners and operators to achieve top-tier vessel performance while also meeting ambitious sustainability targets.

On the other hand, Nova Graphene is making waves with its expertise in crafting unique graphene blends and formulations tailored for specific product enhancements. Their proprietary techniques ensure both excellence in performance and affordability. The diverse range of their research includes groundbreaking applications such as 3D printing filaments, ballistic armour, UHMW polyethylenes, multi-surface coatings with anti-viral/anti-bacterial properties, fireproof polyurethane insulation expansion foams, anti-abrasion coatings, and more.

"This recognition is not just a nod to our individual firms but a testament to the innovative spirit thriving in Halifax," stated Paul Beasant, CEO of Nova Graphene. He, along with COO Michael Wyse, will represent the firm at major international events this month, including the Indo Pacific 2023 Defense Show and the IMARC and World Mining Show in Sydney, Australia.

These nominations place Halifax, and more specifically Dartmouth, firmly on the global map as a hub of graphene research and development. It also underscores the city's ability to foster businesses that can compete and shine on the world stage.

The winners of the 2024 Halifax Business Awards will be unveiled at the upcoming gala event. The entire business community of Halifax eagerly awaits the results, supporting and celebrating its frontrunners.
