Flow Battery Honeywell Inc. (Charlotte, N.C.; www.honeywell.com) introduced a new flow-battery technology that employs a proprietary electrolyte to provide reliable extended-duration energy storage — up to 12 h compared to lithium-ion batteries’ (LIBs) 4 h. “The flow battery uses a non-flammable, water-based electrolyte and will not succumb to failure mechanisms like thermal runaway, unlike LIBs, which rely upon organic electrolytes,” says Roopa Shortt, business development director, Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions. The battery operates by reducing and oxidizing active species in the aqueous electrolyte upon charge and discharge of the battery. “We have developed ways to improve the speed and electrical efficiency of both charging and discharging to ensure stability across thousands of cycles. We have also optimized our design to take advantage of lower-cost materials than are used in other batteries,” adds Shortt. In 2022, Honeywell will deliver a 400-kWh unit to Duke Energy.
