How it Works

• Flow battery system which requires two large tanks that hold fluid electrolytes. One tank is dedicated to saltwater (just add NaCl to water). The saltwater tank may be used for thermal storage. The other tank is a liquid to store the separated NaCl.

• Fluids are circulated through electrodes, which regulate the input and output of electricity from the battery. The Sodium (Na) is stored in the cathode materials.

• No membrane. Electrolytes automatically separate. No membrane saves huge up-front purchase costs, maintenance, and consumable expenses.

• Flow battery uses liquids (hence flow) so it takes 4-6 hours to charge or discharge. \

• NaCl is split and stored separately, the energy can be stored for weeks or longer, unlike other flow systems.
