Alcoa and Phinergy will unveil their jointly developed aluminum-air battery that they say powers electric cars to greater distances. An Alcoa-Phinergy electric car will take laps around the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve to demonstrate the technology, ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix Du Canada in Montreal. Why go with aluminum-air technology for batteries? Phinergy explained aluminum contains high amounts of energy (8 kilowatt-hour/kilogram). It is also easily recyclable, making it an attractive material for energy systems. Phinergy’s aluminum-air energy systems is said to use the energy released by the reaction of aluminum with oxygen to generate electric power. The company’s proprietary air electrodes are said to transform Phinergy’s aluminum-air energy systems into highly effective, robust, and reliable clean energy sources. Phinergy also said it utilizes an advanced batter...
