Saint-Laurent, Quebec , April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- How will Manganese-based battery chemistry ensure more power, capacity, and longer battery life for our electronic devices, smartphones, and energy storage reserve systems.
Manganese and Rechargeable Batteries
Commercial Lithium, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries suffer from low energy density and do not meet the energy storage emporium's growing demands. Therefore, building the next-generation rechargeable Lithium, lithium-ion batteries with higher energy density, superior safety attributes, lower cost, and a longer life cycle is of a paramount importance. “Manganese is a candidate for disruption in the lithium-ion battery space. Manganese has elemental qualities that have the potential to improve density, capacity, rechargeability, safety and battery longevity. The timing for establishing a North American Manganese resource could not be better. With the global push for greener technology and lessening the carbon footprint, Manganese X is poised for leadership in providing a domestic supply of manganese for the rechargeable battery industry, everything from the small consumer batteries in electronic devices, smartphones and energy storage power reserves, to the EV and hybrid electric vehicle industry,” Martin Kepman, CEO of Manganese X Energy Corp.
Manganese is poised to provide a viable component that may replace the existing rechargeable battery chemistry by using its elemental qualities. It has the potential to improve and extend the life of all future rechargeable batteries that could become the new Nickel Manganese Lithium-ion batteries. These future design battery chemistry improvements to the rechargeable battery will improve overall safety. Manganese has the ability to support elevated temperatures thus mitigating the risk of thermal reaction events, causing fire or explosion. Manganese has been incorporated into alkaline manganese disposable batteries for years, because of its stable nature.
“The alkaline-manganese dioxide battery contains electrolytically manufactured manganese dioxide and aqueous alkaline electrolyte, as well as zinc metal as a powder. Electrolytic manganese dioxide is more pure than standard reagent manganese dioxide, and has a greater reactivity. The electrolyte is caustic, and therefore, reduces the hydrogen gassing rate.”
