Black Swan Graphene Inc. (“Black Swan”) (or the “Company”) (TSXV: SWAN) (OTCQB: BSWGF) (Frankfurt: R96) is pleased to announce a shipment of product to Nationwide Engineering Research & Development (“NERD”) for an upcoming concrete pour in the United Kingdom. A picture of the shipment is available below.

This commercial shipment follows the announcement of a partnership between Black Swan, NERD, and Arup Group Limited, aimed at providing an integrated supply chain and a turnkey solution to the concrete and construction industries (see press release dated March 27, 2023).

The upcoming concrete pour will use Black Swan’s graphene product in a total of 180 tonnes of concrete for the construction of an industrial park near Redruth, Southwest England. The industrial park will offer 14 industrial units ranging from 2,500 and 3,500 sq ft, with the graphene-enhanced concrete being used for the external concrete aprons. This is the second time this developer has used the technology provided by NERD, having previously used it in the construction of an industrial park in Warminster, approximately 170 km west of London, United Kingdom.

Rob Hibberd, President and Chief Executive Officer of NERD, commented: “We’re thrilled to announce another commercial concrete pour using our innovative graphene enhanced Concretene. This endeavor not only speaks to the positive response and interest in our proposition but is yet another opportunity to monitor the long-term real-life performance of our product. We look forward to continuing to innovate and collaborate with our partners to deliver cutting-edge solutions to the construction industry.”
