Ioxus R&D tests Ioxus product in Hybrid Vehicle

The Ioxus R&D team is always hard at work, trying new things and working with new technology.

As part of our continued work in R&D the team is proud to announce that it has significantly increased performance of the energy saving i-ELOOP system of a 2014 Mazda 6 Grand Touring passenger car, by fitting it with the Ioxus high energy ultracapacitors. The module, which replaces the stock Nippon Chemi-Con module, occupies the same space but has 26% more capacity and delivers, on average 44% more energy but is lighter in weight.

The Ioxus 25V 139F module (on left) has been imnplemented within the i-ELOOP system of the 2014 Mazada 6 Grand Touring to showcase Ioxus’ superior capacity and light build.

The i-ELOOP system is designed to store braking energy to be then used for auxiliary power such as head lights, electrical system, instrumentation, etc. This translates directly to improved gas mileage and reduction of harmful emissions. This improved energy recovery is accumulative and could potentially reduce each driver’s carbon footprint by more than 1,000 lbs of CO2 emissions per year.

  • 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:
