The incorporation of graphene into Li-ion batteries is meant to improve battery life and charging times.

Applied Nanotech

Applied Nanotech logoApplied Nanotech is a PEN company and functions as the PEN Design Center focused on developing new products for the PEN family of companies using nanotechnology approaches. Its team of PhD level scientists and engineers works with companies to solve technical problems and create innovations, producing a competitive advantage for the PEN family.

Applied Nanotech was founded in 1989, went public in 1993, and for the majority of its history focused on next generation display applications. However in late 2005, to diversify from one "make or break" technology, it expanded its focus to other areas leveraging its previous work. From 2006 to the present, it has made substantial progress in these areas. The company has organized its efforts into four divisions each of which has substantial potential: Nanomaterials, Nanoelectronics, Nanosensors, and Nanoecology.

CAP-XX company logo imageCAP-XX is a designer and manufacturer of thin, flat supercapacitors and energy management systems used in portable and small-scale electronic devices.


COnovate logoCOnovate (previously called SafeLi) was founded on December 15, 2016 by Drs. Carol Hirschmugl and Marija Gajdardziska-Josifovska from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

A university-incubated startup, the company commercializes products based on a unique material called COPHITE (graphene monoxide), with an initial focus on Lithium Ion Batteries.

Dongxu Optoelectronic Technology

Dongxu, also known as Tungshu, was established in 1997 and its headquarters and R&D center are located in Beijing. With roots in the optoelectronic display industry, it now has become a industrial investment enterprise focused on the optoelectronic display and renewable energy industries, while also covering financing, urbanization and real estate. The Tunghsu Group, with yearly revenues of over $5 Billion USD, has 40 subsidiaries under direct management with 100% share control or majority control, among which two are listed companies.

Tunghsu Group has successively invested in and established over 20 production lines of flat panel display glass substrates and a production base for graphene, sapphire and color filters in Beijing, Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou, Wuhu, Chengdu, Mianyang, Yingkou, Kunshan, Zhenjiang and other cities. It has recently released the G-king, a graphene-based battery line, signed agreements with graphene companies (ICN2 included) and invested in many graphene initiatives.

DZP Technologies

DZP Technologies logo imageDZP Technologies was founded in 2008 in the UK to develop specialty materials, formulations, and technologies for emerging industries. The Company works with its customers to create materials for a range of markets, from consumer electronics and wearables, to 3D-printing and renewable energy.

DZP specializes in aqueous materials and formulations which are both user- and environmentally-friendly. Its materials provide a cost efficient alternative to conventional organic solvent systems which not only pose health risk to users, but also have hidden costs for solvent reclamation and health and safety compliance.


Emberion logoEmberion, spun-off from Nokia's R&D unit, designs and develops high-performance optoelectronics based on graphene, other nanomaterials and CMOS integrated circuits. Emberion develops its own optoelectronics products, but also engages in technology licensing and can deliver integrated end products.

Emberion has two R&D sites, one in Espoo Finland and one in Cambridge, UK. The company is a member of the European Graphene Flagship program.
