Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 4, 2020) - ZEN Graphene Solutions Ltd. (TSXV: ZEN) ("ZEN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the grand opening of its Guelph facility on March 3, 2020. The facility will be used for small scale pilot plant production to produce future Albany Pure TM graphene products as well as further research and development work. All shareholders and interested parties are invited to attend. The Guelph facility is located at 24 Corporate Court, Guelph, Ontario. The opening will start at 1pm with an opportunity to meet with management, look at the lab facilities and attend a formal presentation at 3pm.

The company is currently sourcing and purchasing the necessary equipment to build a small-scale graphite purification pilot plant that will produce 99.8% high-purity graphite from the flotation concentrate (86%). James Jordan, P.Eng., has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO) and will be leading the work at the facility.

"This new facility will move the Company towards the production and sale of Albany Pure TM graphene products and introduce our high-quality nanomaterials to the market. Albany Pure TM will be our marketing seal to identify that all our products are sourced from the Albany deposit. We look forward to bringing our nanomaterials including Graphene Quantum Dots, Graphene Oxide, reduced Graphene Oxide and Graphene to the market." Stated Francis Dubé, CEO.

As the Company moves forward towards graphene production and applications development, ZEN is pleased to announce that Colin van der Kuur has been appointed as Head of Research for ZEN, and Monique Manaigre has been appointed as Senior Government Relations and Account Manager for ZEN.

On May 8, 2019, ZEN was awarded a $1,000,000 grant that has allowed the Company to accelerate its graphene-enhanced concrete research and development project. To date, the Company has received a total of $465,000 in reimbursement payments related to this grant as ZEN continues its research into graphite purification, graphene production research, concrete additive research and large-scale graphene-enhanced concrete testing.
