They actually have a link for joining their team. It’s exciting but sadly I don’t have any skills that might be useful for them. 

Maybe girl Friday.

But making Graphene had been notoriously expensive because it took so much energy and could only be made in very small amounts. In the January 27 2020 issue of  the journal Nature DuY X Luong and associates report on a new way to make it that would use only $100 worth of electricity for each ton of high quality Graphene produced. In addition the new method requires no furnace or solvents and produced no reactive waste gases, they make it by vaporizing carbon with a powerful electrical current in a vacuum chamber. And the starting carbon feedstock need not be purified, they say they can literally make high quality Graphene from garbage.
