Carbon Waters is based on a unique way of producing liquid nanomaterials protected by three patents and developed at the CRPP center in the Bordeaux area, France, after more than 10 years of research. Carbon waters was selected by the CNRS tech transfer program (5 projects are selected per year) in november 2015 and is now financed for a scale-up phase.


Since December 2015, Carbon Waters is supported by the New Aquitany Regional Incubator (IRA - Incubateur Régional d'Aquitaine) and by the Aquitaine Science Transfer agency since July 2016.

Our goal is to use this new process to produce high-quality graphene inks and to print it on different surfaces (glass, plastic, paper for example) in order to enhance the performance of this surface (electric conductivity, water and oxygen resistance) as well as to develop specific surfaces for sensors or energy storage applications.

We work in close partnerships with several technical platforms and subcontracting companies in order to propose a large range of tests and functional analysis on our inks and films depending of our customers’ needs and demands such as :

  • Non-destructive analysis for functional materials
  • Printed electronics measures and tests
  • Electrostatics and electromagnetics assays
  • Energy storage assays
