Chemistry Research at PNNL Mentioned in New York Times

Vanadium salt research at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory was mentioned in the New York Times. In "Liquid Batteries for Solar and Wind Power," Henry Fountain notes the salt chemistry in UniEnergy Technologies' vanadium flow batteries was based on a technology developed at PNNL. The PNNL technology uses a mixed electrolyte that significantly increases the energy density and operation temperature range. UniEnergy was founded by a few former PNNL scientists who worked on the mixed acid electrolyte chemistry while working at PNNL. Recently, one of the largest flow batteries was installed in Pullman, Wash. Researchers are studying how the battery could add electricity to the grid on demand.
