Our journey began in 2017 at Uppsala University, when researcher Dr Mamoun Taher invented Aros Graphene®, a unique graphene hybrid material technology capable of unlocking the full potential of graphene.
And so Graphmatech was born – with a mission to take graphene from a novel wonder-material in the lab, to a solution for large-scale industrial applications.
Aros Graphene® Technology
Our unique Aros Graphene® is a patented graphene hybrid material technology which has solved the long-standing agglomeration issue in graphene applications.
Aros Graphene® takes its name from Uppsala and Västerås, the two cities where Graphmatech started. The Vikings used to call them Östra Aros (East Aros) and Västra Aros (West Aros).
An award-winning enterprise
We have already received several awards, including being listed as one of the 33 Hottest Tech Startup Companies in Sweden according to NyTeknik in both 2019 and 2020 and named Nordic Nanotech Company of the Year in 2018!
Our founder Dr Mamoun Taher was also awarded the prestigious SKAPA Prize 2020 for Uppsala Region, for the invention of Aros Graphene, as well as the Peter Egardt’s stipendium for 2021.
Mamoun Taher, CEO / CTO & Founder
Previously of ABB Corporate Research and having worked as a materials researcher at Uppsala University, Dr Taher invented Aros Graphene® and founded Graphmatech in 2017.

Batteries Sweden (BASE)
Batteries Sweden (BASE, previously known as SweBAL) is based at Uppsala University under Kristina Edström. It focuses on research to create new types of lightweight, inexpensive, environmentally friendly and safe ultra-high energy storage batteries.
Based at the Chalmers University of Technology and directed by Ermin Malic, 2D-TECH is a center for research on two-dimensional materials which will focus on application areas for Swedish industry: multifunctional composites, sustainable energy, electronics and new materials.
Digital Cellulose Center
This competence center focuses on digital cellulose, where cellulose is combined with electroactive material, making it possible to develop electrically active cellulose products that can communicate with the digital world while remaining sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Additive Manufacturing for the Life Sciences
Led by Professor Cecilia Persson and based at Uppsala University, Additive Manufacturing for the Life Sciences aims to be a global player in the education, research and development of additively manufactured materials and components for life science applications.
