A unique hybrid flow battery could charge EVs in seconds

hybrid flow battery - EV battery charging

Researchers have developed a new liquid battery that offers a dynamic form of energy storage. A team of chemists from the University of Glasgow have developed an innovative hybrid flow battery system. The chemists designed a new type of energy storage system that uses a nano-molecule that is capable of storing hydrogen gas or electric power. The battery has been designed to release power on demand. Called the “hybrid-electric-hydrogen” flow battery by the team of chemists, the battery can release power on demand that could be used to fuel cars.…

New solar panel recycling plant recovers valuable materials

Solar panel recycling - Solar Panels on side of road

Geltz Umwelt-Technologie has developed a solution for efficiently recycling solar panel waste. ELSi is a new solar panel recycling pilot plant project developed by the German engineering company, Geltz Umwelt-Technologie. It is an advance recycling system designed to retrieve reusable material from solar modules. Solar panel disposal will only increase in the years to come. Solar energy may be a viable renewable energy solution but it is not waste-free. Solar panels have a limited lifespan and will eventually need to be replaced. For this reason, the development of solar panel…
