G2O Water Technologies (“G2O”), the supplier of patented graphene membrane coatings for water treatment and desalination, announces that it has signed an exclusive worldwide technology licence with the South Carolina Research Foundation for the preparation of low cost ultra-thin defect free graphene based membranes.  The patented technology will allow G2O to market a range of membrane coatings that both reduce fouling …

G2O Water Featured in the World Economic Forum’s Agenda Series

Can graphene make the world’s water clean?   While the graphene applications discussed so far address one or two of the issues, it seems that thin films of graphene oxide may be able to provide the whole solution. Miao Yu and his team at the University of South Carolina have fabricated membranes that deliver very high flux and do not foul. Fabrication …

G2O Water Graphene Filters Featured In Scientific American

Graphene: Looking beyond the Hype Despite breathless headlines, it is not clear when completely new things from the wonder material will appear…. One area in which Harper thinks graphene materials show particular promise is water purification. He recently founded UK-based company G2O, which has licensed graphene oxide membrane technology developed at the University of South Carolina, US. The water filtration membranes …
