KB Consulting is excited to share the findings of its latest research regarding Nano-palladium diffusion batteries. This new battery could revolutionize the energy storage industry.
In 1991, Sony,a Japanese company, announced a new revolutionary break througfh in energy storage called lithium-ion batteries compared to the acid or alkaline batteries.
There have been many shortcomings, from the first days of operation of lithium-ion batteries. For example, if the battery does not strictly comply with the voltage level during charging and mind the temperature--knowing when to turn off when overheated and knowing to properly limit the depth of discharge as well as current consumption--then lithium-ion batteries can fail, catching fire and even exploding. Batteries need protective measures, which unfortunately, are not always fulfilled.
In 2016, KB Consulting began working on the creation of alternative electrical energy storage.
A prior solution considered was hydrogen, or, more precisely, energy storage using protons.
For evidence of the merit of this approach, consider the following:
1. Proton batteries are capable of storing much more energy per unit mass and volume than lithium-ion batteries.
2. The lithium reserves on Earth are relatively small (only 0.006%), while the reserves of hydrogen in the earth's crust (lithosphere and hydrosphere) constitute 1% of its weight.
3. The process of lithium production is quite labor intensive and environmentally dirty. For example, chlorine (toxic gas) is released in the reaction in the penultimate stage of the production of metallic lithium from natural minerals.
4. Another disadvantage of lithium-ion batteries is aging. This leads to an exponential decrease in battery capacity. In two years, 20% of their capacity is lost. Lithium is approximately 18 to 20 times more expensive than hydrogen, per ton.
The creation of Nano-palladium diffusion battery (Proton-3ND) was completed two months ago.
A unit volume of palladium can be replace up to 936 volumes of hydrogen. (At room temperature and atmospheric pressure, palladium can absorb more than 900 times its own volume of hydrogen.) The efficiency of this storage method can be significantly increased through the use of modern nanotechnology.
One of the technological problems encountered by our engineers was choosing a matrix upon which to form proton energy storage.
The solution to this extremely difficult task was found thanks to the work of Japanese professors H. Masuda, K. Fukuda, who in 1995 received the film of alumina with self-ordered porous structure using a two-stage anodic oxidation.
The templates for future proton energy storage was a aluminum plate serving as a substrate for a thin layer of aluminum oxide presenting a rough surface with microspores.
As a result, this porous surface of aluminum oxide was coated with an ultrathin micro-nano layer of palladium.
It is the combination of these micro pores, covered with palladium, that became the substrate for micro storage of hydrogen.
The closely-spaced plates' absorbent surface with Nano-palladium cells constitute additional volume for the accumulation of hydrogen atoms.
Calculations show that this battery is 20 times more efficient and 44 times the capacity of lithium batteries.
It is obvious that the struggle for the market between all electric car manufacturers will financially and economically enhance the company that first uses "Proton-3ND" batteries.
The battery Proton - 3ND can be used for all vehicles: trucks, railroad locomotives, marine vessels, and NASA programs.
Nano-palladium diffusion battery is environmentally safe and can prevent smog, global warming and irreversible climate change on the planet.
