Graphene nanopaper: lighter, stronger than steel, aviation and automotive industry applications foreseen.

A breakthrough on paper that's stronger than steel | UTS News Room:

'Not only is it lighter, stronger, harder and more flexible than steel it is also a recyclable and sustainable manufacturable product that is eco-friendly and cost effective in its use.'

Mr Ranjbartoreh said the results promise great benefits for the use of graphene paper in the automotive and aviation industries, allowing the development of lighter and stronger cars and planes that use less fuel, generate less pollution, are cheaper to run and ecologically sustainable.
Origami airplanes less likely to rip open? Cool.
