new battery allows car to drive even further without fossil fuel


“Our aluminum-air energy systems are superior to conventional batteries in terms of energy density and specific energy,” the company said on its website Friday.


Aluminum is a widely available metal that is easily recycled and contains high amounts of energy (8 kilowatt-hours per kilogram). In conventional aluminum-air batteries, aluminum reacts to oxygen and produces electricity. Phinergy’s innovation uses water and recycles the hydrated aluminum oxide to create an anode, a process that enables a closed and sustainable life cycle or recharge.
