Durham Graphene Science logoUK's Durham Graphene Science (DGS) has qualified their graphene production process, and the company is currently looking to raise further funds in the next 6-9 months so it can scale up its production capacity.

DGS (a spin-off from Durham University) developed a unique process for synthesizing graphene from carbon using sustainable and readily available cheap feed stocks in a bottom up chemical vapor deposition process. The company raised $1.8 million in its seed round of financing in February 2012 (valuation was about $3.5 million).
