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.
A city built on science and industry
Manchester is the home of graphene, where Rutherford split the atom and where Turing created the first programmable computer. It is a city which has grown from world-changing scientific creativity and discovery.
Graphene is the world’s first two-dimensional material which is set to revolutionise our everyday lives. The National Graphene Institute is the first step in creating the vision of a Graphene City in Manchester.
