Top 10 zinc based flow battery companies in China
Zinc-based flow batteries are one of three main types of flow batteries, along with vanadium flow batteries and iron-chromium flow batteries. In China, zinc based flow battery companies have also conducted research and production on this kind of battery.
At present, vanadium battery has the highest maturity and the fastest commercialization process. Other battery systems, such as zinc-based flow batteries, are still in the early stages of development and commercialization. Compared with other batteries, zinc-based flow batteries have the advantages of low cost, high energy density, good safety, and environmental friendliness, and have good application prospects in the field of large-scale energy storage.
However, during the long cycle of zinc-based flow batteries, the reactant ions in the electrolyte are more likely to diffuse to the protrusions on the electrode surface, forming zinc dendrites. The continuous growth of zinc dendrites will puncture the separator, eventually causing the battery short circuit failure. Therefore, zinc-based flow batteries must solve the problem of zinc dendrite formation and growth in order to achieve real applications.
