Aussie, Chinese Researchers Developing Biodegradable Organic Battery (New Prod. & Tech.)
Flinders University
Date: 2022-02-28
In the Land Down Under, Researchers at Flinders University in Adelaide, along with Australian and Chinese collaborators, are developing a "fully bio-degradable" all-organic polymer battery that can deliver a cell voltage of 2.8V, which would be a giant leap forward towards improving the energy storage capability of organic batteries,

Fully organic rechargeable household batteries are an ideal alternative to traditional metal-based batteries, and are a positive step in the fight to reduce waste from heading to landfill.

"While starting with small household batteries, we already know organic redox-active materials are typical electroactive alternatives due to their inherently safe, lightweight and structure-tunable features," says senior lecturer in chemistry, Dr Zhongfan Jia, a research leader at Flinders University's Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.

Lithium-ion batteries have enabled a proliferation of portable devices and electric vehicles, but the rising demand for materials such as lithium, cobalt and other mineral ore resources have had a significant global environmental impact, including the non-hazardous disposal of batteries, according to the release.

Filatrex Invests in Energiestro Flywheel Energy Storage (Int'l.)
Energiestro
Date: 2022-02-25
New Delhi-based renewable energy company Filatex India Ltd is reporting a € 10 million investment in French energy storage startup and residential flywheel energy storage system manufacturer Energiestro. The two companies are planning to deploy Energiestro's flywheel storage solutions across Madagascar and Mauritius.

Energiestro's flyheel energy storage system consists of a hollow or solid cylinder that is rotated around an axis and connected to an electric motor and generator. The system stores electricity by converting it into kinetic energy using the motor and the flywheel that rotates at such a high speed that the electrical power is transformed into mechanical power. The device is claimed to have a lifetime of one million cycles, good resistance to high temperatures, a carbon footprint of 10g of CO2 per kWh.. The system capacity should be increased, initially, to 20 kWh, and then 50 kWh, to eventually reach 24 hours of storage. Production is expeted to begin the year, according to Energiestro.

Azelio TES.POD Production Underway (Int'l. Report))
Azelio
Date: 2021-09-27
Production in volume design of Azelio's long-duration energy storage TES.POD has started according to plan. To ensure high quality in both the product and the supply chain, consisting of around seventy European suppliers, production will begin at a low pace before scaling up to high volumes in 2022.

The production chain consists of the assembly of cylinder kits in the company's facilities in Amal, (Sweden), followed by the final assembly of a complete Stirling engine in its factory in Uddevalla (Sweden). The thermal energy storage unit is assembled by AQ Systems in Vaggeryd (Sweden) then married on site.

To date, Azelio has secured orders for two TES.POD units in Sweden and one unit in Dubai, as well as a conditional order from Egypt for twenty TES.POD units, corresponding to 260 kW of electrical output and 3.3 MWh of storage capacity. The company's goal for 2021 is to sign and begin delivery of one or two 100 kW or larger projects.

CCS Gains Industry Support in Houston (Ind. Report)
Houston CCS
Date: 2021-09-17
In Houston, eleven companies -- Calpine, Chevron, Dow, ExxonMobil, INEOS, Linde, LyondellBasell, Marathon Petroleum, NRG Energy, Phillips 66 and Valero -- have reportedly expressed interest in supporting the large-scale deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in Houston and have agreed to begin discussing plans that could lead to capturing and safely storing up to 50 million metric tpy of CO2 by 2030 rising to roughly 100 million metric tpy by 2040.

The companies plan to help address industrial CO2 emissions in one of the largest concentrated sources in the United States. Collectively, the 11 companies are considering using CCS technology at facilities that generate electricity and manufacture products that society uses every day, such as plastics, motor fuels and packaging.

If CCS technology is fully implemented at the Houston-area facilities these 11 companies operate, nearly 75 million metric tons of CO2 could be captured and stored per year by 2040. There are ongoing discussions with other companies that have industrial operations in the area to add even more CO2 capture capacity. They could announce their support at a later date and add further momentum toward the city of Houston's ambitions to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Wide-scale deployment of CCS in the Houston area will require the collective support of industry, communities and government. If appropriate policies and regulations are put in place, CCS could generate tens of thousands of new jobs, protect current jobs and reduce emissions at a lower cost to society than many other widely available technologies. The 11 companies will continue to advocate for policies that enable the long-term commercial viability of new, expanded and existing CCS investments in Texas.

CarbonCure, Linde Announce Strategic Alliance (Ind. Report)
CarbonCure Technology
Date: 2019-08-09
Nova Scotia-based Canadian clean technology innovator CarbonCure Technologies (CarbonCure) and industrial gases specialist Linde, the world's largest industrial gas supplier, have partnered to introduce CarbonCure Technology to Europe, Southeast Asia and Oceania.

The CarbonCure Technology enhances the competitiveness of the concrete industry through improved production efficiency and sustainability. The technology injects a precise dosage of captured waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into concrete during production. Once introduced, the CO2 chemically converts to a nano-mineral, creating manufacturing efficiencies while reducing the concrete's carbon footprint.

The CarbonCure Technology is presently installed in nearly 150 concrete plants in North America and Southeast Asia, with more than 2.3 million cubic meters of concrete supplying a wide range of construction projects from airports, roads to high-rise towers.

CarbonCure, the world leader in carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technology used in the production of concrete, is on a pathway to reduce 500 megatons of CO2 emissions annually. CarbonCure technology is estimated to be a $400 billion market opportunity with the potential to reduce up to 1.4 gigatons of annual CO2 emissions by 2030, according to the Global CO2 Initiative.
