ZAF Energy Systems, a developer of next-generation battery technology, recently announced a technology breakthrough in their nickel-zinc (NiZn) battery technology that extends cycle life and improves reliability. ZAF’s NiZn batteries have direct uses in a wide range of applications including heavy trucking, remote telecommunication, data centers and renewable energy.
Dr. Kurt Salloux who recently joined ZAF’s executive team as its new Chief Technology Officer made the announcement.
“I initially joined ZAF as a technical advisor to conduct due diligence on the NiZn technology for projects I was working on” said Dr. Salloux. “After working with the technology development team, I saw an opportunity to introduce this innovative electrode process to drive improved cycle life. We rapidly validated the performance and I saw an opportunity to impact the telecommunication, data center and utility markets with NiZn batteries. This led to the discussions with the leadership team to join ZAF as the Chief Technology Officer. We are now in the process of moving this innovative technology out of the lab and into our Joplin production facility and expect to be delivering batteries in Q3 to key customer projects.”
