Zinc-Oxygen – Revolutionary Energy Storage
The energy challenges of the world today are rooted in scarcity, especially of fossil fuel resources. Hydrocarbons are complex molecules that formed over millions of years, yet a significant proportion of all known reserves have been depleted in the mere 100 or so years since the industrial revolution.
Human society is addicted to the convenience of fossil fuels. The fact is that fossil fuels are finite but old habits are hard to break.
The world must transition to an economy based on more abundant and sustainable resources.
Zinc Oxygen Energy (ZOE) is 100% emission-free, non-combustible, fully-recyclable energy carrier using metal fuel technology.
Zinc Oxygen Energy (ZOE) is 100% emission-free, non-combustible, fully-recyclable energy carrier using metal fuel technology.Zinc reacts with oxygen in the air through our patented air membrane and results in clean, emission-free, DC electricity. ZOE is the fundamental user-interface for building the concept of a metal fuel economy.
ZOE is a portable, energy-packed, powerful, stable, safe storage solution. It is the energy carrier that completes the eternal energy cycle and the pillar of a metal fuel economy.
The spent ZOE cells will be recycled by SUNZ, a project that converts zinc oxide in our licensed Concentrated Solar Thermal Furnace (CSTF) back into zinc. Within the cycle, zinc will be the energy carrier, and solar energy will be converted to electricity with unprecedented efficiency.
