“The program tries to find companies with an innovative, international, scalable business model and with an expected rapid growth,” explains Michael Camitz, UIC Business Developer and Project Manager for Swedish Scaleups.

“These companies are not easy to identify but Graphmatech meets all these standards. We expect Graphmatech to be a game changer in the material industry with its highly innovative solutions.”

The Swedish Scaleups program

Swedish Scaleups brings together 10 company incubators and science parks, including UIC, to provide select companies with unique access to business development programs and tailored support to scale up their operations more quickly.

Companies adopted into the program are offered a current and sustainability analysis, a detailed plan for growth and the opportunity to follow up the development with the help of a hand-picked advisory board.

A unique advantage moving forward

“We are extremely proud to be selected for the Swedish Scaleups program” says Dr Mamoun Taher, Graphmatech CEO and co-founder.

“This will provide us with a unique advantage moving forward. We aim to become one of Sweden’s leading companies, using cutting edge graphene technology to help industrial partners take their materials and products to the next level. The support and knowledge gained here will be instrumental in helping us take the next steps toward this goal”.

A breakthrough in battery recycling helps enable the green transition

Graphmatech, Graphenea, and Northvolt have succeeded in up-cycling end-of-life EV batteries into graphene oxide at industrial pilot scale. This breakthrough uses the material left after Northvolt has extracted valuable metals and minerals. Until now, that remaining material has been waste.   Emma Nehrenheim, Chief Environmental Officer of Northvolt, comments: “The upcycling of graphene oxide from recycled

Graphmatech and Wematter partner to enable cutting-edge conductive materials for SLS 3D printing

Swedish graphene-solutions provider Graphmatech is partnering with 3D printer manufacturer Wematter, the easy-to-use SLS 3D-printing platform provider for additive manufacturing. Graphmatech enhances polymer powders with Graphene, which makes them electrically- and thermally conductive, improve processibility, and more. Together, the two startups will develop an electrically conductive powder, tailored for Gravity – the SLS 3D printer
