Advanced lithium-ion zinc battery

Recently, lithium-ion zinc (LIZ) batteries, which operate using much safer aqueous electrolytes rather than organic counterparts as in LIB, have gained tremendous attention due to their cost effectiveness and significantly higher energy density compared to typical LIB. This novel LIZ battery system is very well suited for electrical energy storage (EES) application. For operating and install necessary infrastructure such as flanges and fittings in remote project locations, the industrial partner Pro-Flange Ltd., demands uninterrupted supply of electricity for power tools and equipment. However, the current power supply usually suffers either from unstable grid supply or unavailable grid at the project sites. To address this, LIZ battery technology can be effectively utilized to provide power for off-grid sites and improve power reliability and utilization.
