Our cells use aluminium, the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust, and avoids critical metals that have an unethical mining profile such as cobalt.
Our technology uses electrolytes that are not flammable and suited for applications such as grid storage which is tightly regulated with safety as a critical design parameter.
Our cells are fabricated using the same production infrastructure used in lithium-ion technology overcoming scalability challenges associated with other new batteries.
Our batteries use materials that are used in a range of other applications, have a well-known supply profile, and are abundant. They are less susceptible to metal price volatility.
Our unique materials enable a much higher energy density (~150-300 Wh/kg) compared to other batteries used in stationary storage such as lead-acid and redox flow.
Safe, sustainable, high-density batteries
TasmanIon is a New Zealand start-up developing new aluminium-ion battery technologies suited for grid storage and portable applications.
Developed by researchers from Victoria University of Wellington, TasmanIon’s batteries aim to offer a high performing cell that is safer, sustainable, cost-effective, and scalable for a suite of applications.
