Cemtrex recently announced that it will set up a research pilot plant for the production of graphene while simultaneously sequestering carbon dioxide from flue gases at its Farmingdale facility. Cemtrex expects the research pilot plant to commence within six months.

The Company had already been involved in previous environmental project work, and now with growing global interest in the reduction of greenhouse gases, it plans to restart its research activities to strengthen its foothold within this sector. Initially, in the basic research the Company plans to evaluate certain new concepts to generate graphene nanoparticles while capturing Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide from flue gases.
