LG Corporation, based in South Korea, is a multinational conglomerate corporation that is involved with electronics, displays (LCD, plasma and OLEDs), telecom, chemicals and more.
LG has an active graphene research and has filed for many graphene patents. According to our information, LG Electronics is aiming to soon start offering CVD graphene sheets using its proprietary roll-to-roll production process.
The latest LG graphene news:
South Korea is planning to spend around 47 billion won ($40 million) in the next six years on graphene technologies. The Korean government (or specifically the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, MOTIE) wants to help local companies to commercialize graphene, and more than half of the investments will be given to small businesses.
Korea is ranking third in the world by number of graphene patents. Samsung is the company that holds the largest amount of graphene patents in the world, while Korea's Sungkyunkwan University is the world's leading research institute (if we rank by graphene patents, again).
Lomiko Metals sees a large graphene market ahead, says Graphene Labs already sold to over 4,000 customers including Ford, Samsung, LG and Sony
Graphene Laboratories recently signed a two-year strategic alliance agreement with Canada's Lomiko Metals, the owner of several resource properties containing high-grade graphite. Graphite Investor News posted an interesting interview with Lomiko Metals' CEO, A. Paul Gill.
Mr. Gill says that he sees a "huge market" for graphene, as billions of dollars have already been spent on research and development. Gill says that Graphene Labs alone have sold graphene products to over 4,000 customers, including Ford, Sony, Samsung, LG, the US Army and NASA.
