$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

6K's UniMelt system replaces a three-day, multi-step, high waste chemical co-precipitation (hydro-met) process with one that is ultra-clean and ultra-fast (as low as 2 seconds), powered by a 6000K microwave plasma. Compared to state-of-the-art CAM plants today, 6K uses half the footprint, substantially lower CapEx, and half the conversion costs or less.

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

The automotive sector in India is dominated by two-wheelers (scooters, motorbikes) and three-wheelers (autos, rickshaws) that play a significant role in last mile mobility in the country. The battery swapping model is a solution to the inadequate charging infrastructure in the country. With a large addressable market and many OEMs offering swap-capable vehicles, many start-ups are now emerging, which aim to offer swapping services.

Zinc-Based Batteries for Energy Storage

Having existed and been in commercial use for many decades, zinc batteries are back in the limelight. Zn-air batteries have been used for medical devices such as hearing aids while primary zinc batteries, comprising a zinc anode and a MnO2 cathode, are ubiquitous for consumer devices, such as TV remotes. Enabling rechargeability could help zinc batteries succeed in the stationary storage sector given inherent advantages regarding the use of cheap, widely available, and safe materials. This premium article provides an introduction into rechargeable zinc battery technology and the companies looking to commercialise zinc batteries for stationary energy storage applications.
