Emma FitzGerald, Guy Outen and Robert Shewchuk are not standing for re-election.
GMG thanks the outgoing directors for their role in the growth of GMG, and wishes them all the best in their future endeavours.
In anticipation of these departures, GMG has appointed to the board Robert Galyen, Andrew Small and Jack Perkowski, who all propose to stand for re-election at this AGM along with Craig Nicol and Will Ollerhead.

GMG is a clean-technology company which seeks to offer energy saving and energy storage solutions, enabled by graphene, including that manufactured in-house via a proprietary production process.
GMG has developed a proprietary production process to decompose natural gas (i.e. methane) into its elements, carbon (as graphene), hydrogen and some residual hydrocarbon gases. This process produces high quality, with low cost inputs, scalable, ‘tuneable’ and low/no contaminant graphene suitable for use in clean-technology and other applications. The Company’s present focus is to de-risk and develop commercial scale-up capabilities, and secure market applications.
In the energy savings segment, GMG has focused on graphene enhanced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (“HVAC-R”) coating (or energy-saving paint), lubricants and fluids. In the energy storage segment, GMG and the University of Queensland are working collaboratively with financial support from the Australian Government to progress R&D and commercialization of graphene aluminium-ion batteries (“G+AI Batteries”).
