New carbon nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene are showing the potential for improved performance and value in emerging markets such as mobile electronics, energy storage, energy saving, aerospace and bio-sensors. Having led the way in large scale manufacture of these incredibly strong, flexible and versatile materials, Thomas Swan are now ensuring that both carbon nanotubes and graphene are safely introduced to new markets.
We fully support its involvement in wider European issues through CEFIC, the EU Chemical Industry Association, and are also funding additional inhalation toxicology testing for carbon nanotubes.
This presentation will summarise the actions we are taking to ensure safe commercialisation of these new materials.
