Instantly hot, super-thin, cutting-edge graphene heater

In late February and early March 2017, we exhibited our graphene technology at the Graphene Experience Zone of the Mobile World Congress. The Graphene Experience Zone featured five different innovation areas: IoT and Sensors; Wearables and Health; Energy; Datacoms; and Composites. Each of these areas contained specialised demonstrators and prototypes developed by leading industry and academic partners. […] Read more

Converting food waste into highly sought after graphene and hydrogen

Food is a valuable resource and yet in the UK around 15 million tonnes of food gets wasted every year. This figure gets even scarier when looking collectively across all the member states of the European Union (EU), where 88 million tonnes of food gets wasted annually. The future doesn’t look promising, as it is further estimated that approximately […] Read more

Graphene is helping make stronger, lighter and greener aircrafts

Boasting an array of extraordinary mechanical strength, electrical conductivity and thermal properties, the graphene composite is already paving the way for a much stronger aerospace industry. At FGV Cambridge Nanosystems, we have invested heavily in R&D facilities where our scientists are creating the next generation of graphene infused aerospace composites, electronics and conductive coatings. For example, graphene […] Read more

Graphene is helping the automotive industry meet stricter CO2 regulations

In the past, automotive companies have been early adopters of new materials, not only to maintain their competitive advantage but also to keep up with ever stricter emission controls. The incorporation of graphene is no exception, and we are seeing this 21st century material finding adoption in a variety of areas of the modern automobile: […] Read more

Graphene: Better for People, Profit and Planet!

In 2013 I wrote an article for the Design Special Interest Group of Innovate UK advocating the value of inclusive design on the triple bottom line: People, Profit and Planet. Since then I have focussed my attention on another pillar of social, economic and environmental sustainability: Graphene, or more precisely Inclusive Design with Graphene, as […] Read more

The Carbon Age: What can graphene learn from the commercialisation pathways of previous ‘wonder materials’?

Nobel Laureate Konstantin Novoselov and colleagues have written a critical, yet optimistic, assessment of the state of graphene research and production [1]. In their writing they have posed a big question that they believe must be answered before widespread adoption of graphene technology is possible: “are graphene’s advantages sufficient to use it in place of […] Read more

I dream things that never were; and I say, Why not?

Our dream was to revolutionise both manufacturing and the way we live our lives by making graphene and other carbon nanomaterials available at large volumes and high quality. When a group of people dream of doing something that others would regard as near impossible and yet they go ahead and do it nonetheless, they are […] Read more
