Although lithium-ion batteries attract almost all the attention today, several forward-thinking scientists and companies have been making big progress behind the scenes to commercialize a new class of technologies that could soon grab a significant share of the energy storage market: zinc-based batteries.
Zinc-based batteries come in several varieties and can service several applications. Low-cost, non-rechargeable zinc-based batteries have existed for decades. But getting zinc-based batteries to be meaningfully rechargeable has been a goal that has long eluded scientists.
NAATBatt International will hold its third annual workshop on lithium-ion battery recycling on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. This year’s workshop will be a webinar.
The Zinc Battery Technology III Workshop will highlight the progress being made in producing rechargeable zinc-based batteries. The workshop will look at the rechargeable zinc-based batteries being sold in the market today, their potential uses, and new zinc-based battery technologies that may be coming to the market soon. Speakers will outline the potential advantages of zinc-based batteries–low cost, non-toxicity, recycle ability, and the potential for greater energy storage–over lithium and lead-based battery technologies.
The workshop will consist of four segments of 75-minutes each. Attendees may listen live to whichever segments they like—all for one low cost registration fee ($95 for NAATBatt members; $125 for non-members). NAATBatt will provide all registrants with link to a recording of the webinar and copies of speaker presentations after the program.
In addition, the workshop will feature three (3) virtual tours of zinc-based battery manufacturing facilities. If you want to see how zinc-based batteries are actually made, don’t miss this program.
