Nano Carbon starts graphene production in Poland

Nano Carbon, a poland-based startup established in 2011, announced it has began to produce graphene materials. The company will offer these materials via its online store.

The company uses technology developed at the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology in Warsaw and is co-owned by mining giant KGHM and the Industrial Development Agency (ARP). The method, an adaptation of epitaxy, relies on the crystallization of carbon from an outer source, which means the carbon is settled down in the form of a one or two atom thick layer on the surface. The EMT says that the process is efficient and cheap and uses commercially available equipment.
