Graphene has been hailed as the new wonder material, yet commercial progress remains slow to the industrial observer. Ray Gibbs CEO of Haydale will take you through what they are doing to rapidly grow the Graphene space and why the near term wins are really not that far away and bigger than some researchers and commentators think. The key to commercialisation is to
• fully understand the base materials and their price/performance criteria;
• focus on key market drivers in markets renowned for early adoption of new technology- most likely unregulated;
• to establish a robust supply chain; and
• gain independent credibility for the technical claims
