China is becoming a force to be reckoned with in Graphene research and industry world This presentation is detailed the stage of graphene commercialization among the Chinese companies; i.e the mass production of graphene powder and CVD graphene films may have been resolved. And the key challenge is finding right killer application of the new nano-material.
Speaker Biography (Bill Qu)
Dr. Qu graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006 with a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering. After graduation he joined Advanced Micro Devices as Senior Product Development Engineer and was promoted to Member of Technical Staff in 2009. In 2010, he returned to China and founded The Sixth Element (Wuxi) and The Sixth Element (Changzhou). In Oct. 2014, the Sixth element issued IPO and stock number is 831190. It became the first public company in China which primary business is graphene. Dr. Qu is also the deputy dean of Jiangnan graphene Research Institute and visiting professor at Changzhou University. In 2013, Dr. Qu was elected to be the chair of the strategic alliance of technological innovation of graphene industry in Jiangsu Province. He has filed 15 graphene related patents of invention and 5 of them had been granted.
Company Profile (The Sixth Element)
The Sixth Element (Changzhou) Materials Technology, founded in 2011, is the leading manufacturer of graphene oxide, reduced graphene oxide, graphene and CVD graphene (called Graphene film) in China. With a current production capacity of 400 t/year The Sixth Element serves all relevant applications with special designed products. As of April 2020 the capacity will go up to 1000 t/a. The Sixth Element is one of the three founding members of the REACh Graphene Registration Consortium and has registered as substances graphene and graphene oxide with reduced graphene oxide to follow end of 2020.
