Graphene Nanochem, in cooperation with the National Innovation Agency of Malaysia are going to develop Malaysia's national graphene hub. The hub, which will be launched in Q2 2014, will focus on the development of graphene and the commercial applications for graphene.
Graphene Nanochem says that the Malaysian government has identified graphene as a key material for driving technologies and commercial applications. They hope to turn Malaysia into a global graphene innovation hub.
A couple of weeks ago Graphene Nanochem announced that Malaysia's Scomi Oiltools, a global supplier of drilling fluid services, will exclusively market the company's range of formulated graphene-based PlatDrill series to the oilfield chemicals market.
