EASYL is an international technology provider, for the electric power storage system. Zn batteries, Zn / Ni and Zn / Air systems, are a real alternative to Lithium batteries in particular and allow to be part of a sustainable development approach. Indeed, one of their advantages is that they can be fabricated from plentiful raw materials, the element Zinc being the 4th metal produced after Iron, Aluminum, and Copper.
To this end, since 1998 efforts have been made to implement an environmentally efficient titanium nitride industrial production, this material is required for the construction of the zinc anode. Subsequently, the focus was on all materials constituting the zinc anode. We have revolutionized the production of calcium zincate, a key element of any zinc anode.
To date, we are working towards the shaping of these batteries in order to sustainably extend their performance.
To this end, we are working on:
The production of an electrochemical active ingredient, calcium zincate, through an ultra-fast and innovative synthesis process.
Optimization of a process for preparing a ready-to-use ink for the manufacture of the electrodes,
The improvement of zinc-based porous electrodes.
To achieve our mission, we act:
By providing the raw material.
By developing new technologies of architected zinc electrodes.
The choice of Zn batteries makes it possible to guarantee our planet Earth a large-scale availability of technology, and to envisage low production costs while observing a sustainable development policy:
Zn 4th metal element available.
No need for dangerous Lithium and irrelevant for stationary storage.
No need for Cadmium, Lead, Mercury.
Production of its components:
Calcium zincate, ultra-efficient process.
Titanium nitride with a low environmental footprint.
Easily recyclable battery.
Our various lines of research allow us to provide solutions on various key steps in the development of zinc for rechargeable alkaline batteries. The direct consequence would be a significant increase in the lifetime of the batteries at high energy density compared to known technologies.
Aware of the environmental issues we face, our research approach is deeply rooted in a responsible and respectful approach to the environment. Our scientific and technical expertise is an essential contribution to the development of efficient and economically competitive storage technologies.
After many years of investment in lithium batteries, and because many problems with Zinc anode technology were not solved, our resilience now allows us to actively participate in the new challenge of electrochemical storage of renewable energies.
