Sustainable

ESG

Recyclable

  • Battery stacks can be refurbished and repurposed
  • Components are easily separated and recycled
  • Chemistry is benign and does not create new compounds
  • Stack materials are non-toxic
  • Majority of catholyte chemicals are recoverable and reusable
ESG

Easily Sourced in North America

  • Sodium and sulfur chemistry based on readily available commodity chemicals with large global supplies
  • No rare earth minerals required
  • All materials available locally in North America
  • Sodium is the 6th most abundant element, sulfur is the 16th
ESG

Safe

  • Power module enclosure is inert and free of moisture
    • Oxygen-free environment eliminates possibility of fire.
  • Sodium fully contained within power module
    • No possibility of reaction between sodium and oxygen or water.
  • Safe shutdown condition
    • Sodium solidifies at room temperature and can be safely handled with appropriate precautions.
  • Fail-safe Redundancy
    • In the event of a separator breakage or crack, the battery simply shuts down with no unsafe outcome.
