Graphene Supply, Application and Commercialisation Summit 2014

LBCG (Group Headquarters) : 14 May, 2014  (New Product)
The Graphene Supply, Application and Commercialisation Summit 2014 will be held on 12 and 13 June 2014 at the University Of Manchester, UK. Collaborating with the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, this year's summit aims to take graphene one step closer to commercialisation.
As capabilities for reliably producing and processing graphene advance, industries are eager to determine their own supply chains, integrate graphene with manufacturing equipment and understand the business case for applications across electronics, energy storage, composites, biomedical and barriers.
The successful commercialisation of graphene lies in the standardisation of scalable supply, tailoring properties through defect engineering and substrate choice and identifying profitable applications that exploit graphene's unique properties. Only with this understanding can industry confidently invest in industrialisation and deliver graphene devices in the near future.
Day One (12 June) focuses principally on applications:- delivering updates on the progress of projects benchmarking the quality, scalability and integration requirements for each application to determine the immediate requirements for adoption. Except for Biomedical, all applications are discussed on Day One.
  • Electronic applications: flexible touch screens, transistors & semiconductors, sensors
  • Aerospace composites
  • Energy storage
  • Barrier applications
  • Thermal dissipation
  • Biomedical (Day Two)
Day Two is primarily concerned with Production, supply & processability - Unveiling production methods for scaling up the supply of high quality graphene and optimising manufacturing integration to deliver competitive graphene products
  • Standardisation of supply
  • Graphene production methods: CVD, Exfoliation
  • Defect characterisation  
  • Substrate interactions
  • Manufacturing implications
  • Health & safety
Towards the end of Day Two, biomedical applications are discussed, and the conference concludes with an intriguing look at other 2D materials, which may exist alongside or as a replacement for graphene. Thes include molybdenum disulphide and hexagonal boron nitride, whose properties relative to graphene are discussed. Also reviewed is the role of 2D insulators as substrate layers between graphene to maximise its conductive properties in electronic applications. The session highlight the scalability, quality and processability of 2D materials to understand their business case, compared to traditional 3D materials and examines the applications of 2D materials aside from those related to graphene and the roadmap towards commercialisation.
