Electric cars with flow-cell drive


NanoFlowcell has achieved a method of variable control for flow-cells. Following extensive testing with the company’s Quantino 48 V, the company says the redesigned system architecture for electric vehicles is ready for production. By varying the fuel cell control directly and dispensing with super-capacitors, significant reduction in cost and weight of drive systems for electric cars can be achieved. The benefits of the flow-cell based drive technology, compared with other electric drive systems, such as Li-ion batteries or hydrogen fuel cells, are noteworthy in respect of power, range, environmental compatibility, cost-effectiveness and safety. The Quantino offers the range and speed of an internal combustion engine car. It was previously impossible to vary the control of flow cells directly, so they needed buffer storage in so-called super-capacitors to be able to manage the flow of current for regulating driving speed.
