Dual membrane offers hope for long-term energy storage

Dual membrane offers hope for long-term energy storage A new approach to battery design could provide the key to low-cost, long-term energy storage, according to Imperial College London researchers. The team of engineers and chemists have created a polysulfide-air redox flow battery (PSA RFB) with not one, but two membranes. The dual membrane design overcomes … Continue reading Dual membrane offers hope for long-term energy storage
