Graphene application developers

AEH Innovative Hydrogel

UK-based AEH Innovative Hydrogel Limited was established in 2018 to develop food-based fully recyclable hydroponic gel.

AEH's hydrogel (branded as GelPonic) is graphene-based, and it is designed to reduce food production costs, improve quality and lower environmental impact.

Aerogel Core

Aerogel Core has been established by University of Bath scientists, supported by Innovate UK funding.

The Company specializes in ultra-light, graphene-based ‘aerogels’ that can be used for soundproofing and heat-shielding for the aerospace and automotive industries.

The innovative and environmentally friendly aerogels are synthetic, porous materials manufactured by replacing the liquid component normally found in gels with gas.

The team has developed a way to use graphene to produce aerogels that retain their shape and strength, without the gel structure collapsing.


AlterBiota is a green chem-tech company that develops 'bio-graphene' additives designed to increase the strength of concrete and reduce its environmental footprint. 

Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon (AC) was founded in 2018 in Bristol Robotics Laboratory, where the company is based. 


Amalyst logoUK-based Amalyst was established in 2012 to develop graphene-enhanced platinum-based fuel-cell catalysts.

Amalyst is a full member of the Graphene Flagship.


Anaphite logo imageAnaphite, located in the UK, aims to incorporate graphene into battery materials, via an inexpensive and scalable process that fits directly into existing cell production lines.

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.

Atomic Mechanics

Atomic Mechanic logo imageAtomic Mechanics is a limited company based in Manchester, founded in 2017. It has been created to design, manufacture and commercialize a range of sensor and actuator devices based on a patented graphene-based technology.

Beijing Carbon Century Technology

Beijing Century Carbon logo imageBeijing Carbon Century Technology, founded in 2013, specializes in graphene macro preparation technology, R&D and technical services of its downstream application technology. Beijing Century Carbon has been identified by the ISO9001 , ISO14001 certification, and passed the identification of high-tech enterprise.

Black Semiconductor

Black Semiconductor logo imageBlack Semiconductor is a tech startup company based in Aachen, Germany. It was spun out of nonprofit research center AMO.

Its goal is to manufacture and market extremely powerful microchips with integrated electronic-photonic circuits.

Brain Scientific

Brain Scientific is a New York City based medical device and technology company offering products and solutions related to the brain including neurology, AI, and machine learning. One of Brain Scientific's endeavors is a minimally invasive graphene electrode.

Cambridge Raman Imaging (CRIL)

Cambridge Raman Imaging logo imageCambridge Raman Imaging Limited (CRIL) was registered in the UK in 2018. Its focus is on bringing to market high speed, label-free Raman imaging instruments. The first application uses graphene in medical imaging, aiming to deliver better patient outcomes through faster and more accurate tumor diagnosis and treatment.


CamGraPh logo imageCamGraphIC was spun out of Cambridge University to commercialize graphene photonic circuits technology for telecoms and datacoms. The company is supported by co-founder Frontier IP Group Plc.


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.

Dreamfly Innovations

Dreamfly Innovations (DFI) was founded in India in September 2021 by IIT and IISc Grads with 16 years of collective experience in the battery space.
