Graphene could help reduce the energy cost of producing heavy water and decontamination in nuclear power plants by over one hundred times compared with current technologies, University of Manchester research indicates.
We want to partner with visionary companies to bring graphene products to the market. Where better to develop future applications than at the home of graphene – The University of Manchester.
In Manchester we have a seamless transition from graphene's fundamental properties to applications.
Professor Rob Dryfe
Our world-class expertise and facilities can help businesses create incredible applications. While some projects will be long-term investments, graphene also has the potential to be implemented immediately. Long-term or short term, it's all possible here in Manchester.
