Advanced materials producer First Graphene (ASX:FGR) has just become the first and so far only entity with regulatory approval to manufacture and sell graphene powders in Australia.
AT A GLANCE
- The company has received a certificate under the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS)
- The certificate covers the company’s PureGRAPH range of graphene powder products
- It follows the seal of approval from the Australian Department of the Environment and Energy
First Graphene told the market late last month that the NICNAS body had assessed its PureGRAPH products for listing on the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS).
But now it can start selling its powders in Australia, thanks to the Department of the Environment and Energy providing the final crucial tick of approval.
It makes the company the only entity in the world with regulatory approval for the sale of up to 10 tonnes per annum of graphene powders in Europe, and to sell out its capacity of graphene powders in Australia.
The company provided items including chemical characterisation, toxicology and environmental information, all of which required considerable research.
“This completes the approval of our graphene materials in Australia. In conjunction with FGR’s REACH registration it demonstrates our position as the leading ethical supplier of tonnage quantities of high-quality graphene products,” Craig McGuckin managing director said.
