Flow Cell Energy - Power of the Future

nanoFlowcellNew Thinking for Clean Energy. Eco-friendly. Practical. Safe.


nanoFlowcell® marks the start of the modern era of mobile energy carriers. A compact flow cell with scalable output for a variety of applications. Powerful enough to drive sports cars fully electrically. Cost-effective, for affordable e-mobility. Environmentally compatible for sustainable use. Absolutely safe - in use and to health. In combination with bi-ION, nanoFlowcell® surpasses all currently available battery technologies for static and mobile applications.

bi-ION is a liquid energy storage medium with an energy density comparable to that of the very latest lithium-ion batteries. Yet, in contrast to these, it is also thermally safe and environmentally compatible. bi-ION is the first environmentally friendly mobile energy source that conserves resources and it is utterly harmless to health, opening up brand new opportunities for electric mobility – on land, on water and in the air - as well for grid and off-grid energy.
