Zinc8 has developed innovative battery technology that uses zinc and air as fuel. Energy is stored in the form of zinc particles, similar in size to grains of sand. When the system is delivering power, the zinc particles combine with oxygen drawn from the surrounding air. When the system is recharging, zinc particles are regenerated, and oxygen is returned to the surrounding air. Zinc8’s ESS is a long-duration (8-plus hours) energy storage solution, which the company says is made of safe, low-cost materials with a unique architecture that allows to extend the system’s storage capacity with a minimal marginal cost.  Contact Sean at sean@proactiveinvestors.com
