Welcome to the Graphene Automotive 2020 Exhibition and Conference where graphene researchers and automotive manufacturers will meet in Detroit to explore new graphene-based solutions for use in automotive applications.
Graphene, an ultra-light weight and immensely strong material has captured worldwide interest. Graphene is 200 times tougher than steel, incredibly thin and flexible, a superb conductor, and can offer a solid barrier. As production and processing of graphene has advanced, the automotive industries are eager to establish supplies, integrate graphene into existing processes, and explore new uses of graphene in a multitude of automotive applications including electronics, thermal management and structural uses.
While graphene is emerging as the most promising nanomaterial because of its unique combination of superb properties, industries are faced with a number of key challenges before wide-scale commercial use can be established. The solution for commercialization of graphene lies in the standardisation of high-quality materials in a scalable manner, developments in material integration and processes, and the production of graphene at the lowest possible cost in order to achieve profitable applications. By overcoming the challenges, industries can confidently invest in industrialization to deliver graphene-based devices and solutions in the near future.
This year’s Graphene Automotive 2020 conference is set to become the world’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for graphene researchers and automotive manufacturers to meet and explore new uses of graphene in automotives, and to address the specific challenges associated with the commercialisation of graphene for use in a multitude of new applications.
Key topics on this year’s agenda include:
- Graphene availability, market supply, and demand forecasts
- New markets and the commercialization of graphene automotive applications
- Quality and standardization of graphene materials to meet commercial needs
- New developments in manufacturing processes and material integration techniques
- Latest methods, results, and new developments in graphene-based composites
- End-user automotive manufacturer case studies and successful applications
This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders, from researchers and suppliers in the graphene industry, to end user manufacturers, to network and build cross-market relationships and to discuss the latest developments in graphene use in new automotive applications.
