The Verified Graphene Producer Program
The graphene market is crowded and becoming increasingly confusing, with new companies regularly appearing on the scene. There are at least 180 companies world-wide claiming to produce and supply graphene materials of various grades and morphology.
In a review of material specification sheets for 60 graphene products, The Graphene Council found that more than 45 different material characteristics were listed, but not one of them was common to all of the materials claiming to be graphene. In fact, less than 75% of the products reviewed shared a common listed specification.
This makes it impossible for a buyer to compare materials from different suppliers without actually testing each sample, and a full graphene sample characterization by a world-class lab costs approximately $12-15,000 - per sample!
As a result, The Graphene Council has created the Verified Graphene Producer program to help reputable graphene companies to differentiate themselves from the competition.
The Graphene Council Verification Program is based on the most recent developments of globally recognized graphene standards, surveys of graphene producers, researchers and users, as well as analysis of commercially available graphene products, and is an important step in providing customers and end-users a degree of confidence that they are sourcing material from a reputable supplier.
This involves an in-person inspection of graphene production facilities, analysis of random samples of graphene products and independent testing and characterization of the material by internationally recognized and qualified labs.
