Introducing POWERPASTE: An Advanced High-Energy Density Storage Solution
POWERPASTE is an innovative energy storage solution that utilizes the benefits of metal hydrides through a unique and adaptable composition. By combining magnesium hydride (MgH₂), a metal salt additive, and an ester, POWERPASTE delivers impressive energy densities of approximately 1.6 kWh/kg and 1.9 kWh/liter at the material level. The key feature of POWERPASTE is its ability to make the metal hydride doseable and the reaction notably dynamic. This versatile energy solution is suitable for a wide range of applications where water is available, making POWERPASTE an attractive alternative to traditional energy storage solutions, including batteries.
The hydrolysis of magnesium hydride in POWERPASTE generates gaseous hydrogen, which is then converted into electricity using fuel cells. This process enables the development of compact, safe, long-lasting, and cost-effective energy sources that outperform high-performance batteries in terms of energy density, even at the system level.
