Ioxus Holds Webinar in China to Discuss Replacing Lead-Acid Batteries with Ultracapacitor Technology


More manufacturers are improving the energy storage of their applications by leaving lead-acid batteries behind and replacing them with ultracapacitors. Therefore, Ioxus will hold the webinar, “Replacing Lead-Acid Batteries with Ultracapacitor Technology,” on March 20 at 10:00 a.m. CST out of China that will address the need for widespread adoption of ultracapacitors among manufacturers.

Countries around the world are adopting ultracapacitors more frequently as they implement stronger pollution and emission legislation to create a better fuel economy. Ultracapacitors are a cleaner and cheaper energy storage alternative to lead-acid batteries that allow applications to meet the demand for improved efficiency. Design engineers who attend the webinar will understand why there is such a demand for an increase in energy storage and how ultracapacitors can meet this increasing demand.

Attendees of the webinar will also learn:

  • Why it is necessary to replace the lead-acid battery
  • The energy storage demands of applications such as wind turbines, hybrid drive systems, UPS, cranes and forklift, and the best technologies to meet these demands
  • How ultracapacitors are a more cost-effective energy solution, as well as a more efficient solution
  • The specifics of ultracapacitor system design and maintenance.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
