Alabama Graphite announced that it has found naturally occurring flake graphene at its Coosa Property in Alabama, USA. The graphene was obtained using an innovative and cost effective process, by Dr. Nitin Chopra of The University of Alabama under their sponsored research partnership.

The company believes that this discovery of naturally occurring single and multi-layer graphene opens a completely new and unique business dimension for the Company and emerging technologies using graphene could greatly benefit from a cost effective processing methodology, with the potential for improved economics and increased production levels relative to any of the current methods used to create synthetic graphene. The company claims the work done on its material has the potential to enhance the process of producing scalable, nano-manufactured graphene and graphene-based derivatives.
