This advanced zinc-air battery can further electric mobility

Posted by in categories: energy, futurism

Researchers use a mix of less expensive, safer, and sustainably available components to create long-lasting bi-functional air electrodes.

We have all heard the line; the future is electric. But are we fully equipped to handle a full-scale transition to all-electric power? One thing standing in the way is the lack of cleaner and more affordable battery technologies to store energy.

Compared to commonly used Lithium-ion cells facing challenges related to cost, finite resources, and safety concerns, rechargeable zinc-air batteries (ZABs) are pitched as cost-effective energy storage devices and display high-energy density, especially for application in EVs.
