UK Graphene Open for Business with Asia
News Jun 23, 2015
The UK exhibit will promote the collaborative approach between material and technology providers, world class universities and government backed laboratories and innovation centres between the two regions.
Ray Gibbs, CEO for Haydale commented “Korea is a major potential market for our enabling functionalised graphene technology. Graphene is regarded as the next “big thing” in Korea and we believe our technology and UK expertise can make a significant impact. Since entering into our sales and marketing agreement with planarTECH in Korea last August we have met a number of progressive Korean companies and this exhibition will further increase our exposure to the Nano community in Korea.”
Haydale is in the process of establishing a wholly owned subsidiary in Korea, located in Seoul. Initially the company will be a sales and marketing office managing local sales and support. Thereafter a centre of excellence will be established to include a Haydale reactor offering both functionalisation and advisory services to customers in the region.
Mr Gibbs added “Our attendance at NANO Korea and the establishment of a new office in Seoul are evidence of Haydale’s focus on the Asian region for the development of new products. Our office opening is an exciting development in the push to globalising our enabling functionalised graphene technology and is another milestone in the delivery of our strategy to establish centres of excellence across the globe”.
Microbubbles Could Help Remove Dental BiofilmsNews
Scientists have conducted a study to look for better ways for dentists to remove plaque and prevent complications. The team studied the efficiency of a cavitating jet, where high-speed fluid is injected by a nozzle through water to create very tiny bubbles of vapour. When these bubbles collapse, they produce strong shockwaves that are able to remove contaminants like bacterial biofilms.READ MORE
Water Resources Threatened By Glacier RetreatNews
Melting glaciers around the world will result in reduced downstream water resources even in basins with low ice coverage, report scientists. Glacier retreat and associated future runoff changes raise major concerns over the sustainability of global water resources, but global-scale assessments of glacier decline and resulting hydrological consequences are scarce.READ MORE
