In collaboration with partner research institutions, Amer-Sil has conceived a range of ion exchange membranes for application in redox flow batteries and electrodialysis processes. We propose hierarchically structured ion exchange membranes, available with both anionic and cationic functionality. The membranes are fabricated in an innovative process, designed to be sustainable and cost effective.
The membrane concept also allows for convenient tuning of the membrane properties, that can be then easily matched with the requirements of the target application.
Initial membrane performance evaluation results have been published in international peer reviewed journals.
