(Yicai Global) July 2 -- Chinese firm LeaderNano Tech has been granted the world's first product certificate for cutting-edge graphene technology at an event at the Graphene 2018 show in Dresden, Germany.
The International Graphene Products Certification Center, which was jointly set up by a Chinese graphene industry body and European institution Phantoms Foundation in early 2018, granted the certificate to the Shandong-based firm, state-backed Xinhua News Agency reported.
Graphene, made from carbon just one-atom thick, is the strongest material in the world. It is completely flexible, while also more conductive than copper, and could herald a new era in the development of new materials.
Phantoms Foundation invited over 700 top graphene experts, scholars and enterprises from 49 countries and regions worldwide to the event. Liu Zhongfan, an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences received the certificate on behalf of LeaderNano Tech.
IGCC aims for the certificates to provide buyers with reliable approaches to choosing quality graphene products, while also regulating the overall industry.
Founded in 2011, LeaderNano Tech mainly deals in the industrialized development, production and application of graphene and relevant carbon nanomaterials. The firm is able to produce 100 tons of graphene powder, 200 tons of energy materials, 30,000 tons of polymer composites, and 48,000 tons of functional coating each year.
