NaSICON Technology –
a game-changing solution for energy transition
“Sodium (Na) Super Ionic Conductor” is Enlighten’s proprietary, ion-selective, solid-state, ceramic membrane technology. NaSICON enables low temperature, high conductivity and selectivity of sodium ions which are in a class above traditional sodium separator materials. NaSICON is commercial and ready for manufacturing scale-up.
Diverse and high-value applications
Long duration energy storage
Enlighten’s long duration energy storage (LDES) decouples power and energy. It allows storage capacity to match market requirements. NaSICON provides higher energy density than other flow battery technologies and beats Li-Ion on cost at 7+ hours.
Sulphur and metals removal
The DSU® process, powered by NaSICON, is a low-emissions technology that reduces sulphur and metals in heavy oils to make clean, low-sulphur fuel oil for the marine market. It has been de-risked and is moving towards implementation in the CleanSeas demonstration plant to meet and even exceed the new IMO 2020 marine environmental standards. DSU® technology can also be used as a refinery pre-treatment process to produce more high-value products from difficult feedstocks, including carbon fiber.
