OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI February 12, 2018
Dr. Zina Jarrahi Cinker, Executive Director of the National Graphene Association (NGA), will discuss the “challenges of the U. S. graphene sector from the supplier and end-user perspective” at this critical meeting focused on recommending and formulating graphene standards for the United States.
National Graphene Association is the main organization and body in the U. S. advocating and promoting the commercialization of graphene and addressing critical issues such as standards and policy development. NGA is a member of The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which serves as the US TAG (Technical Advisory Group) to ISO- TC 229.
Dr. Jarrahi Cinker will discuss the pain points of the graphene industry arising from lack of standards and the need for standardized characterization methods. A panel of NGA members will discuss internal practices implemented by their companies and how to unify these practices as a starting point for global standardization.
“The discussions will also cover the importance of differentiating between graphene powder and film segments and the broadly different characterization and technical specification needs for each segment, “ Dr. Jarrahi Cinker said.
The Standardization meeting planned for March 20 will take place at the U. S. Department of Agriculture and brings together graphene stakeholders focused on commercialization of the carbon-based material “graphene” which will have a considerable impact on the future of technology.
Graphene Stakeholders can register to attend the ANSI-NSP meeting on March 20th here.
