A graphene industry innovation center was recently established in Beijing, China. The center aims to become a world-class graphene composite technology research and industrial incubator hub.

Beijing Graphene Industry Innovation Center will take the advantage of Beijing's innovative resources to research and develop cutting-edge new materials. It hopes to speed up the transformation of scientific research achievements and enhance the graphene industry.

In China, which has substantial graphite deposits, more than 500 companies already specialize in graphene products. China expects to establish a comprehensive graphene industry system by 2020, according to a government plan drafted in 2015.
