Dynamic global energy group Petronas comes to the UK

To strengthen the relationship with Malaysia-based energy company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (“Petronas”), Haydale welcomed Petronas researchers to its headquarters in Ammanford, and sister plant in Loughborough, UK.

The visit comes after the successful execution of a collaboration agreement, as announced in August 2023. As noted at the time of the announcement, as part of the collaboration leading experts from Haydale will be working together with Petronas researchers, to functionalise graphene for product applications in an effort to accelerate commercialisation of graphene-based formulations in various different industries.
