“We continue to be pleased by the progress being made in our partnership with The Dow Chemical Company for the manufacture and marketing of Nanoco quantum dots for the display market. We are particularly excited about 2015 when, as previously announced, we expect Dow to begin mass production of our quantum dots in Cheonan, South Korea, by mid-year.

“We are currently producing quantum dots from our own production facility in Runcorn to satisfy demand from customers and potential customers ahead of Dow’s mass production facility in Choenan coming on line.

“We look forward with confidence to the year ahead, during which time we expect to deliver further substantial progress in the commercialisation of our technology across our key target markets including display, LED general lighting, solar and bio-imaging.”
