As the world goes green in order to save energy and develop alternative energy, it is a call for all of us to actively innovate in the energy industry for the benefit of mankind. This call requires everyone to be open-minded and willing to learn and develop new technologies. ABS, Inc., is responding by developing revolutionary new fuel cells and batteries that are free from environmental contamination. We intend to become industry leaders, innovating with passion and compassion, not only in the field of medical diagnostic devices, but also in the field of green energy.
BattCell is an electrolyte-free and air-independent battery/fuel cell (BattCell) device that is based on the revolutionary nanostructure biomimetic membrane electrode assembling. It produces very high current density when the cell is activated, and our innovative technology offers advantage over the proton-exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyte approach. The BattCell technology offers high power density and high energy density with 10-100-fold lighter weight, smaller size, while achieving superior safety and portability profiles. There is no refueling, heater or cooling fan, non-flammable, no carbon dioxide emission; It is stable with a wide temperature range; It has more than 90% high efficiency of charge/discharge against normal 70% efficiency; It is safe and environmental friendly. The prototype devices have been demonstrated scaling up capability.
