Elcora Resources, a Canadian graphite mining company (with a 40% equity stake in a Sri Lanka based graphite mine) announced plans to become a vertically-integrated carbon company, from graphite mining to graphene production. Elcora will also changes its name to the Graphene Corporation.

The company hopes that controlling all the steps from graphite mining to final graphene production will enable it to optimize the conversion of the processed graphite to bulk, top-down, single or few layered graphene. The company is currently testing several graphene production methods and will soon (before the end of 2014) choose one and scale it up to a "market supportable production rate".
