Graphene Nanochem was a UK-based company with Malaysian ties that manufactures performance specialty chemicals and advanced nanomaterials from renewable sources including waste materials. The company offered several products for the oil and gas sectors.
Graphene Nanochem held an exclusive license to a process known as Catalyx which uses a catalyst to extract graphene from biogases (such as methane). This process can potentially mean low-cost graphene production. The company also developed graphene-enhanced lubricants used in the extraction of shale gas, graphene-based Li-Ion batteries and graphene water treatment systems.
In September 2014, Graphene Nanochem signed a licensing and offtake agreement for the entire production of the graphene-enhanced PlatDrill lubricant to Scomi-Oiltools, which was estimated at 135,000 tonnes over the following five years.
Graphene Nanochem started trading in the UK's AIM stock exchange (ticker: GRPH) in March 2013 following a Â£32.5 ($50 million) fund raising. In 2016 the group faced financial difficulties and started a restructuring process. In early 2018 it announced it will remove its shares from the AIM. The company had plans to acquired modular construction company CG TekBuild and IPO again, but it seems as if the company is no longer in business.
