New eco-friendly rechargeable zinc-air batteries

Recently, two research fellows from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research in Bengaluru (also called Bangalore, India), won the silver award at KPIT Sparkle 2020 for designing the most efficient and eco-friendly rechargeable zinc-air batteries for electric vehicles. KPIT Sparkle is an innovation platform that allows the youth to make an impact in the field of automotive software and nurture talent for the evolving mobility ecosystem. Tarandeep Singh, one of the fellows, is a researcher at the Department of Chemistry and Physics Material Unit. He believes that zinc-air batteries are the future of tomorrow, “At a time when the fuel prices are increasing and global warming is on rise, the metal-air batteries, especially zinc-air batteries, have huge scope in the market. That’s why we wanted to work on this product and we’re planning to launch it in the market soon.” We converse with him to know more about these batteries.
