The research institute (Germany) and its current partners (Italy) are looking for industrial partners with different profiles and specialization to take part in the project that comes as response to the H2020 FETOPEN-01-2016-2017 topic (deadline Sep 2017).
The project aims at developing a prototype of a redox-flow battery that can be recharged by using a low temperature heat source (<100°C). The two feed solutions used by the battery have the same composition but different concentration. The cell produces current by exploiting the two feed solutions; at the end of the discharge, the difference of concentration between the two solutions vanishes. The recharge is performed by distillation, which restores the concentration difference.
The research institute is looking for industrial partners with different profiles for a research cooperation agreement.
