DAYTON, OHIO, November 12, 2019 – Global Graphene Group (G3) continues its leadership in the graphene industry by joining the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) graphene consortium. A member of G3’s executive team will represent the company in Frankfurt, Germany, at the November 14 REACH consortium meeting.
G3 is one of only three companies actively engaged with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to participate in studies on potential exposure sources and recommendations for improved safety practices when dealing with graphene. This topic will be addressed during the consortium meeting.
REACH focuses on how chemicals in products are handled, and their potential impact on the environment and human health. It works with companies that manufacture products in or import products to Europe to address chemicals that could have a negative effect.
“Global Graphene Group does business with European customers,” said John Davis, G3 COO. “It is vital to our continued success in the EU region to be REACH certified. Joining the REACH consortium will allow G3 to take an active role in how graphene solutions are handled in Europe, and help shape the trajectory of the graphene industry.”
As the leader in the graphene industry, Global Graphene Group adheres to strict environmental, health and safety procedures. G3 has a dedicated internal team focused on environmental, health and safety impacts of our manufacturing for our employees, our customers and our local communities.

REACH aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. This is done by the four processes of REACH, namely the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. REACH also aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
