Rolls-Royce is reportedly working with University of Manchester’s Graphene Engineering Innovation Center (GEIC), along with its partner Versarien, to use graphene in wiring for the next generation of aerospace engines.

The partners will work to leverage graphene’s unique properties to improve engine electrical performance, resist corrosion, and lower the weight of electrical components, according to thebusinessdesk.

The partnership comes amid growing global demand for sustainability, with concerns over global warming and fossil fuel consumption on the rise. To that end, the team hopes their efforts will lead to lower production costs and ultimately lead to reduced energy consumption, which will have a positive impact on the environment.

“Rolls-Royce is one of the world’s leading industrial technology companies and today, the size and impact of the markets its serves makes this task more urgent than ever. Taking advantage of advanced materials such as graphene, has the potential to revolutionize these markets and add real benefit,” said Versarien CEO Neill Ricketts.
