On November 18, Anzode CTO Pavel Khokhlov will showcase recent developments in Anzode's rechargeable zinc-manganese battery technology, as part of the NAATBatt Zinc Battery Technology virtual workshop.
Anzode's presentation and discussion will be part of the opening workshop session, "Commercial Developments in Zinc Battery Technology" and will highlight the company's path-breaking research to create market-ready alkaline batteries with water-based, nonflammable electrolyte, nontoxic, and inexpensive electrode materials that can be recharged hundreds of times.
Anzode’s batteries use safe, abundant, easily procured, and inexpensive materials: a 60% cost advantage over lithium-ion batteries and gas generators. In one estimate, Anzode backup power technology could save a 200-store grocery chain $43 million over ten years from discarded perishables and lost profits in a power outage.
In the long-term, with successful commercialization, Anzode batteries may substitute for the majority of the lead-acid battery market globally ($40 billion+ market size in 2019) and constitute up to half of the stationary storage battery market (projected to be $112 billion by 2035).
Another large industry sector that Anzode has strong potential to disrupt is primary alkaline batteries ($25 billion by 2023). Achieving stable performance with high-capacity utilization on improved manganese-based cathodes will also make Anzode’s batteries usable for different EV applications.
Anzode is based out of its state-of-the-art lab facility in San Leandro, California, and was recently awarded a $1.7 million California Energy Commission grant. For more information about Anzode, please visit anzode.com.
