Flow battery life cycle assessment: article published on the Journal of Cleaner Production
A new article has been published on the Journal of Cleaner Production, an international and transdisciplinary journal focusing on Cleaner Production, Environmental, and Sustainability.
The paper Assessment of semi-organic electrolytes for redox flow battery: Life cycle assessment as a tool to steer industry toward green chemistry, has been written in collaboration with University of Siena (with Prof. Riccardo Basosi, among the others) in the context of the project ComESto – Community Energy Storage – of which GES is a partner.
In the article, a life cycle assessment of a semi-organic redox flow battery is presented and compared with a Vanadium redox flow battery, considered as the most used available solution. In the conclusions, the semi-organic redox flow battery shows several sustainability and environmental benefits compared to the Vanadium one.
