Thank you to our guest speakers:

Mark Snell, Business Development Manager for Applied Graphene.

 Graphene is a one atom thick layer of graphite, 100 times stronger than steel yet six times lighter, with a electrical conductivity 20 times greater than copper.  Based at Wilton, Applied Graphene is developing a production method for the supply of this exciting new product.  

The potential for this material to be used as an ingredient in products encompassing industries such as: aerospace, electronics, leisure and automotive is phenomenal. Applied Graphene is in the race to provide these industries with a reliable supply in the quantities required to enable commercial production.  It is predicted that everyone will be coming into contact with Graphene infused products on a daily basis.  Find out how Applied Graphene intends to be a global player operating from its North East base. 

Peter Wood,  Engineering Manager for P D Ports.
