The first IZABW (International Zinc/Air Battery Workshop) was attended by a hundred researchers from different universities and companies from European countries like Germany, France, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Norway, Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark and Switzerland as well as countries such as Canada, Israel, China, Malaysia and Singapore. The workshop took place at the WBZU (Education and Training Centre Ulm for Innovative Energy Technologies) in the German city of Ulm, and was organized under the project BMBF “Zinc/Air Battery with Advanced Materials for Storage of Renewable Energies and Grid Balancing “(LUZI).
Technicians from Tecnicas Reunidas attended the event to present a poster on the activities within the project LIFE ZAESS, focusing on the construction of the zinc/air flow battery pilot plant.
In addition, during the conference they could learn from the experiences of other research centres about zinc/air technology. Thus, the attendance at this conference has allowed TR to meet potential partners for future projects.
In conclusion of the conference, it should be noted that new electrolytes and new materials are the subject of many studies, and thus the current results of technology are expected to improve in the coming years.
