Phinergy is a leading pioneer in metal-air technology, turning abundant metals into clean energy carriers. This revolutionary technology releases the abundant energy contained in metal, allowing various applications to efficiently leverage its high energy density for storing, transporting, and generating clean and safe energy.
This revolutionary technology releases the abundant energy contained in metal, allowing various applications to efficiently leverage its high energy density for storing, transporting, and generating clean and safe energy.
The basic principle that enables metal-air systems to produce energy is the combination of metal, oxygen, and water, oxygen being a key reactant for releasing energy from metal. While conventional batteries carry oxygen in heavy electrodes, our groundbreaking, patented Air-Electrode, enables metal-air systems to freely breathe oxygen from the air, making them significantly lighter.
Making up 8% of the earth’s crust, aluminum is the most abundant metal in the world. For more than a century, aluminum has been produced by injecting large amounts of energy into the metal, mainly in remote places where energy is abundant, clean, and cheap.
Our Aluminum-Air technology releases the energy initially injected into aluminum for a variety of applications, using aluminum as a clean and safe energy carrier. Fully recyclable and reused as an energy carrier with no material loss, aluminum creates a clean and sustainable circular value chain.
Leveraging proprietary Air-Electrode, the Zinc-Air technology enables local energy charging and discharging for intermittent renewable energy sources.
The Zinc-Air system architecture separates the charging, storage, and discharging units, providing complete flexibility, and easily adapting to application-specific requirements. This flexibility enables the increase of storage capacity at low marginal costs.
While conventional batteries perform charging, storage, and discharging in one single unit, with a fixed power-to-capacity ratio, the unique design of our Zinc-Air technology breaks this paradigm.
By separating the charging, storage, and discharging units, our Zinc-Air solutions can be tailored to the specific inputs, outputs, and storage capacity, providing complete flexibility in adapting the solution to each application-specific requirement.
Simply put, this means that, while other existing solutions double capacity for double the price, with Phinergy’s technology, capacity can be doubled for a low marginal cost.
