Graphmatech and Khalifa University’s RIC2D sign MoU to collaborate on advanced graphene-engineered materials and manufacturing processes

Graphmatech and Khalifa University of Science and Technology’s Research and Innovation Center for Graphene and 2D Materials (RIC2D) have announced a memorandum of understanding (MoU), establishing a strategic framework for cooperation in advanced graphene-engineered materials and manufacturing processes.

A spin-off from Sweden’s Uppsala University, Graphmatech develops novel graphene-based nanocomposite materials and products, and focuses on three main business areas: metal-graphene composites and coated powders, polymer-graphene composites and additives for energy storage.


"The cooperation with RIC2D is strategically vital for Graphmatech, unlocking boundless opportunities to offer our products and services across sectors in the UAE and beyond," expressed the CEO and founder of Graphmatech, Mamoun Taher. "We are thrilled to cooperate and support the UAE's visionary leadership in attaining net-zero emissions and a diversified economy. Through advanced graphene materials technology, we aim to leave an indelible mark on this transformative journey, shaping a better and brighter future together."

“Through the signing of this MoU, RIC2D and Graphmatech are forging a strategic alliance that paves the way to playing a critical role in meeting the UAE Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative,” Arafat said. “Together, we are pushing the boundaries of advanced materials’ science, using graphene-based solutions to shape a sustainable and transformative future for industries, research and society at large.”
