ZincFive - Manufactures and deploys high-capacity, rechargeable, and recyclable nickel-zinc batteries

ZincFive manufactures and deploys high-capacity, rechargeable, and recyclable nickel-zinc batteries that provide high energy density and performance, with significant safety and environmental advantages. ZincFive batteries can be used in data centers, intelligent (communicating) transportation, and stationary, motive (off-road applications to produce motion) and start-stop applications. Recyclability is one of the main environmental advantages of ZincFive's nickel-zinc battery - the raw materials can be recycled without losing their physical and chemical properties.
