Research needs unexpectedly bring the long sought-after breakthrough with the QUANTiNO. Its nanoFlowcell low-voltage drive delivers compelling results without cost-intensive and heavy supercaps serving as energy buffers. What started out as an emergency solution developed into an outstanding system benefit. The drive system in electric vehicles can now be designed to be even lighter and more cost-effective.... more

Modern Steam Engines

E-mobility critics are questioning the environmental compatibility and sustainability of alternative energy vehicles. Electric cars are, for many, a mediocre compromise of zero-emissions driving with “dirty” energy and environmentally harmful technology. nanoFlowcell offers an environmentally friendly, no-compromise energy alternative – and not only for electric vehicles. Water vapour emissions are the only “exhaust gases” generated by nanoFlowcell.... more

Full Speed Ahead up a Dead End

Electric mobility has an acceptance problem. Technological concepts are inadequate and political solutions insufficiently stringent. Between expedient optimism on the part of industry and non-strategic activity on the political side, the infrastructure problems of charging batteries is emerging as the main issue hampering electric mobility. Electric mobility should be suitable for the masses – by hook or by crook – but there is no comprehensive charging infrastructure. One solution is refillable batteries like nanoFlowcell. A comprehensive fuel-station network suitable for use by nanoFlowcell electric vehicles already exists.... more
