Sodium Ion Saltwater Batteries


The Sodium Ion Saltwater Battery is the world’s first battery that is truly safe, durable and ideal for solar energy storage systems. The battery is a sealed electrochemical energy storage system based on unique saltwater electrolyte.

 

This unique Aqueous Ion Exchange Battery (AIB™) battery chemistry consists of a saltwater electrolyte, a manganese oxide cathode, carbon titanium phosphate composite anode and a synthetic cotton separator. The battery uses non-corrosive intercalation reactions at the anode and cathode.

 

Saltwater batteries are maintenance free and optimized for daily deep discharge. The batteries are abuse-resistant, can handle large temperature ranges, can be partially loaded without degradation, and are easy to configure and install.

 

The Sodium ion saltwater batteries are optimised for daily deep discharge. This means charge and discharge profiles from 4 to 20 hours.

The AIB™ saltwater batteries have a safe electrolyte: saltwater. The batteries are completely sealed and require no maintenance. They are self-balancing and therefore require no compensating charge or battery management system (BMS).

In addition to the safety and durability benefits of using salt water as an electrolyte, another advantage is the thermal mass of the embodied water. This means that AIB products do not heat up or cool down quickly, and they can therefore be used in a very wide operating temperature range.

 

AIB chemistry is based on charge/discharge mechanisms that are unaffected by partial state of charge – these batteries can therefore be placed on partial charge or even no charge indefinitely, with no irreversible loss of capacity as lead acid batteries have.

 

 

Saltwater batteries can reduce energy costs and maximize the use of renewable energy sources.

Applications include: own consumption, backup power supply, peak-shaving, demand response and off-set diesel generator use for a wide range of markets including: Microgrids, Commercial & Industrial, Telecom, Green Architecture, Lighting and Utility Scale

 

>Aqueous Ion Exchange Battery (AIB) batteries withstand daily deep discharge (80% DOD), a wide temperature range and partial charge cycles with minimal degradation.
> AIB batteries have an environmentally friendly electrochemical design that does not contain heavy metals, toxic chemicals, inorganic solvents or other harmful materials.
> AIB batteries do not rely on heavy or toxic metals such as lead or corrosive materials such as sulfuric acid or lithium hexafluorophosphate.
> IB batteries are safe enough to be processed through traditional waste streams.
