Metal air batteries

In comparison to other types of batteries Metal-Air-Batteries could reach higher specific energy storage densities and possess a large potential to be used as stationary energy storage.

ZBT is partner in the project "Verbundvorhaben ZnPLUS - Wiederaufladbare Zink-Luft-Batterien zur Energiespeicherung" which is dealing with research and development of zinc-air-batteries for large scale energy storage. In that frame ZBT develops and tests electrochemical cells to be used with zinc filled electrolyte slurries as liquid zinc electrode. The scope of work ranges from computational fluid dynamics over construction and manufacturing of small test cells to electrochemical characterisation of cells, electrodes and other components.
