Zinc8 Energy Solutions (ZAIR) is receiving funding from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP).
The $500,000 in funding is to support a research and development (R&D) project titled “Improvement of sub-component efficiencies of the Zinc-air battery system.”
Under this agreement, NRC IRAP will provide advisory and funding support to Zinc8’s R&D division on this 2-year project to improve individual sub-component efficiencies by material and process variations for its patented ‘Zinc-air Energy Storage System (ESS).’
This support comes in addition to an ongoing 6-month project where NRC IRAP is providing Zinc8 with up to $75,000 in R&D funding.
CEO Ron MacDonald sat down with Sabrina Cuthbert to discuss the news.
