Jim Rogers has announced that he has invested in Standard Graphene, Korea’s first graphene manufacturer based in Ulsan, a southeastern industrial city, the third of its kind in just around one year. He is also serving as an adviser there, according to the Korea Times
“Scientists say graphene is going to bring bigger changes to the world than the internet and transistors. It did not exist 15 years ago,” Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings, told The Korea Times. “It is a miracle material.”
Graphene is a two dimensional hexagonal structure that is stronger than steel, mostly transparent, and flexible. It’s continuously touted for its remarkable properties, and is forecasted to be used in everything from infrastructure to electronics.
“I have an interest in the company because they seem to be a leader in production of graphene,” he said, refusing to reveal the amount of his investment.
