The miracle material of the 21st Century

This is the first in a series of articles focusing on Alberta’s entrepreneurs and innovators. The articles are intended to highlight the vitality of the province’s innovation space through the personal journey of innovators and entrepreneurs. Donna Mandau and Dr. Leah Coumont of Edmonton-based Graphene Leaders Canada kick off the series of articles to showcase graphene and the disruptive technology. Mandau founded GLC and is President and CEO; Dr. Coumont is the director of research and development.

"As the miracle material of the 21st century, with applications in everything from medicine to household electronics to aviation to the automotive industry to batteries to textiles to coatings to the environment, it is a certainty that graphene will gain rapid adoption in the same way that plastics did over the course of the 20th century."
