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.
From space and energy to sustainability and healthcare, Graphene Flagship researcher Yarjan Abdul Samad is keen on solving today’s problems with innovative materials
Graphene Flagship Spearhead Project GRAPES makes cost-effective and stable photovoltaic panels with graphene and layered materials
One of the Graphene Flagship’s most fundamental goals is to get new graphene-based products into the hands of consumers.
The Graphene Flagship funds comprehensive roadmapping efforts within our Industrialisation Work Package. Our researchers study the state-of-the-art developments based on graphene technologies, analyse the market, and then provide strategic guidance on commercial uptake and industrial impact.
Cecilia Mattevi was an invited speaker at Graphene Week 2021, where she showed us her exciting work on the 3D-printing of energy storage devices – with the help of graphene. "We are very interested in layered materials, in particular graphene, for energy applications" she says.
