Nano Carbon, a company co-owned by mining giant KGHM and the Industrial Development Agency (ARP) has launched the production and online sales of graphene. This is the first such project in Poland.

Graphene is an ultra-thin 2-dimensional carbon structure, which is strong, light and is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. The material sold by Nano Carbon was developed by a team coordinated by Włodzimierz Strupiński from the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology in Warsaw.

“It's a historic moment,” said Prime Minister Donald Tusk at the launch. “We successfully combined the power of invention, the energy of businesspeople and the government's help,” he added, saying that he hopes similar projects will follow soon.
