Grolltex

Grolltex is an early-stage company with breakthrough technology for the mass production of graphene. The company has developed a method in which graphene is grown on a copper substrate and overlaid with a sheet of nickel. Because graphene adheres better to nickel than to copper, the entire graphene single-layer can be easily removed and remains intact over large areas. Their technology allows local, waste-free industrial production of large-area graphene (the "hottest" and the most expensive material currently in existence) at a price that is 240,000 lower than the current market price. This will allow the emergence of thousands of new applications (>7,000 graphene related patents are pending) that are waiting for the large-scale production of this material, including printable solar cells, flexible displays, ultra-fast processors, gas separation membranes and myriads more.
