Thomas Swan, Plessey, DelStar to develop graphene applications

CONSETT, UK: Thomas Swan & Company Ltd said that it has been awarded an additional Innovate UK funding for two new collaborative projects in a programme entitled “Advancing the Commercial Applications of Graphene”. Both projects are due to start on April 2016.

The first project will see the Thomas Swan advanced materials team work alongside Plessey Semiconductors Ltd, Nano Products Ltd, Nottingham Trent University and University of Strathclyde on flexible LEDs.

The second project will involve a partnership with DelStar International Ltd, Haydale Ltd and the University of Bradford to develop plastic composites for advanced separations.

The company will increase its capacity to 15 tonnes of graphene during 2016. The company also recognises that the principal challenge in graphene commercialisation remains the identification and optimisation of applications in which graphene technologies add value. Therefore, the company continues to work actively with partners to develop commercial applications for these unique materials.

“We are pleased to be working with such high quality collaborative partners in both projects,” said Andy Goodwin, commercial director, advanced materials division, Thomas Swan. “These Innovate UK projects offer an excellent opportunity to work with leading research institutes and application developers in our target markets.”
