Shandong Yuhuang Chemical (Group) is a China-based petrochemical group that produces and markets a range of chemicals, including propylene, isobutene, butadiene, isoprene, Styrene, Toluene, and others. It was founded in 1986 and is located in Heze City, Shandong Province, China.
The Centre for Process Innovation is a UK-based technology innovation centre. It is a non-profit institute funded by the UK government, the private sector (through contract R&D services) and matched-funding EU projects.
Carbon Sciences started out as a graphene developer, based on a graphene production process technology from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB).
Carbon Sciences then shifted its focus to graphene applications, funding an R&D initiative at UCSB to develop a graphene-based optical modulator, a critical fiber optics component needed to enable ultrafast communication in data centers for cloud computing. In September 2017 Carbon Sciences announced that it will change its focus to advertisement solutions (and abandon the graphene market, it seems) and change its name to Digital Locations.
Gnanomat, based in Madrid, Spain, developed a proprietary patented liquid-phase procedure to exfoliate graphite to graphene. The single-step process produces high-quality graphene micro platelets. The process uses cheap, biodegradable solvents.
The company seeks to find industrial partners to license the technology and scale it to an industrial scale. In February 2017 Gnanomat signed an agreement to co-develop nanomaterials (including graphene) for batteries.
Strategic Energy Resources (SER) is an Australian based explorer with a diversified portfolio of mineral assets. The company is exploring and developing land with prospective large discoveries in Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria.
In May 2014 SER announced it is resolved to focus on graphene related investments to move the company forward. SER holds 20% in Ionic Industries (which was spun-off from SER in 2015), and the company also holds a stake in Valence Industries.
