is building a generation of green batteries to address safety and
Anzode is addressing the safety and environmental issues of legacy battery chemistries as well as achieving strong performance.
Our goal is to eliminate the need for lead-acid batteries by providing affordable alternatives that are non-toxic, safe, and highly dependable.
Anzode is developing safe and environmentally friendly high-performance batteries
Lead Acid – a growing human catastrophe:
Lead acid battery production and recycling poses a very significant global health and environmental issue. According to the Blacksmith Institute, in developing countries alone, lead smelting and lead-acid battery recycling claims 7,300,000 year of human life annually.
Nickel Cadmium – progressively being banned:
Cadmium is considered more harmful than lead, especially if ingested. This RCRA-registered hazardous waste and carcinogenic chemistry is increasingly being banned from landfill around the world and from sales in the EU (for most applications).
Lithium Ion – growing health & safety concerns:
Lithium-ion batteries use flammable liquid electrolyte and thermally unstable electrodes. Electrolyte contains unstable compounds which if exposed to air release harmful gasses known to cause
significant health issues. Lithium-ion batteries are also considered as a threat to public safety. They are prone to thermal runaway and between 1999 and 2006 the USNTSB recorded 27 aviation incidents, of which a number resulted in loss of life. Similar safety concerns are now being investigated by the NTSB regarding their use in Highway-Rated Electric Vehicles.
