Tunghsu Optoelectronics is a leader in China’s graphene industry and has seen its graphene-related business grow rapidly in recent years. It already produces four products including graphene-based lithium-ion batteries, graphene energy-saving lighting, graphene thermal management systems and graphene anti-corrosion coatings, where in 2018, the industrial application of graphene reached 181 million yuan, an increase of 170% year on year.
It will now work with Drs Migliorato and Kumar and The University of Manchester to add the new range of air quality sensors to its growing graphene portfolio. Dr Kumar added: “I believe working together we can provide a technology solution for real-time air-quality mapping to help the local governments introduce new levels of environment, health and safety regulations.”
Tunghsu Optoelectronic is a Tier-One partner to the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) which opened last year. The GEIC is the University’s commercially-focused graphene facility in the heart of Manchester that specialises in the rapid development and scale up of graphene and other 2D materials applications.
President and Vice Chancellor, Dame Nancy Rothwell, added: “We are very excited about the new collaboration between The University of Manchester and Tunghsu Optoelectronic. We look forward to working with our new partners.”
