Malaysian-based Felda Global Ventures Holdings (FGV) aims to set up a graphene plant in the country within two years and become the largest graphene materials producer in Asia.

FGV Executive Vice-President of the Palm Downstream Cluster said that the RM15 million (around 4,080,000 USD) plant is expected to have a production capacity of 9 kilogramme of graphene per day. The location of the plant is unspecified, but is expected to be located at one of FGV's mills. In November 2013, FGV started collaborating with Cambridge Nanosystems to jointly produce graphene and CBNTs from crude palm oil.
