Functional Foams and Coatings
Work Package 13
We design, research and develop new technologies for next generation foams and coatings, based on graphene and layered materials, for environmental applications such as water and air purification, anti-corrosion coatings, and humidity and pressure sensors for environmental remediation.
The ultimate goal of the Functional Foams and Coatings Work Package is to develop new technology to help EU countries mitigate climate change in line with the Paris agreement, and to enable these countries to adhere to policies set by the European Commission defining acceptable standards for water and air quality.
Sodium is one of the most abundant and affordable metals in the world. Now researchers at Graphene Flagship partner Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, present a concept that allows sodium ion batteries to match the capacity of today's lithium-ion batteries.
Meet the team assessing the safety and environmental impact of graphene and layered materials.
New technologies for the production of layered materials can help us manufacture low cost, chip-scale gas sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Environmentally friendly production methods lead to more sustainable graphene-based products and devices.
Spearhead Project GRAPHIL develops compact water filters based on graphene.
