Can Graphene from Waste Be a Breakthrough for Some Manufacturers?

Toronto-based Universal Matter has discovered a way to make large quantities of graphene from waste cheaply and aspires to sell product born of this innovation to cement and concrete companies.

Among its benefits, graphene can enhance the properties of asphalt, concrete and plastics and is especially recognized for its ability to strengthen these materials. But producing it has been expensive, time and energy intensive.

John van Leeuwen, CEO of Universal Matter, explains the barriers and how he is getting around them.
