Graphene Flagship Partner SPAC Spa is developing new steering wheels and glove boxes with graphene-based materials, as part of the Spearhead Project G+BOARD.
Graphene Flagship Partnering Project CERANEA develops graphene-filled ceramic sandwiches that deliver materials with enhanced properties and functionalities.
The first workshop in the series “Graphene from the buyer’s perspective – the powers of standardisation,” held on 19 February 2021 and organised by the Graphene Flagship Standardisation team from Work Package Industrialisation, focused on one specific material group: powders, dispersions and composites.
Welcome to the home of the future.
Based at Technische Universität Dresden, Ali Shaygan Nia is a business developer for graphene-based coatings and composites for environmental applications such as air and water purification and anticorrosion coatings. Shaygan Nia has a PhD in polymer chemistry and more than six years’ experience developing graphene and 2D materials for composites and coatings. He also has experience on graphene-based product development and commercialisation by acting as application engineer at the Graphene Flagship's spin-off Sixonia Tech. Shaygan Nia now offers his thoughts on the current state of graphene in foam and coating applications.
Ali Shaygan Nia, Business Developer at the Graphene Flagship, sets out his vision for graphene-enabled composites.
Barpimo have just joined the Graphene Flagship consortium as a partner, and they are formulating new graphene-based paints and resins to fight rust
Nathan Feddy is the business developer for composites applications for the Graphene Flagship. Feddy gained key experience in the financial and nanotechnology consultancy sectors prior to joining the team at The University of Manchester’s state-of-the-art Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC). He has worked with several high-profile companies to incorporate graphene into their composite materials/products, to provide multi-faceted performance improvements and additional enhancements. Feddy now offers his thoughts on the current state of graphene in composites applications.
The Graphene Flagship identified the strategic advantages of integrating graphene into fibre composites, used to build planes and cars.
Graphene Flagship scientists have developed a graphene-titania photocatalyst that degrades volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides.
Gloria Guidetti first worked as part of the Graphene Flagship as a PhD student at the University of Bologna, Italy. Since then she has taken a job as a Development Engineer at Tetra Pak, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, where she helped the company join the Graphene Flagship as an associate member.
Mark Dickie offers his thoughts on the current state of graphene in composites applications.
Graphene composites could reduce reliance on critical raw materials for automotive, aerospace, and energy applications, as highlighted at a workshop co-hosted by EIT Raw Materials, Hub Innovation Trentino and the Graphene Flagship in Trento, Italy.
