Due to the evolution of the Coronavirus situation in Europe and around the world, the event's organisers have decided to postpone R-Zinc 2.0 to October, 2021 when it cover the main topics linked to the development of zinc batteries in Europe and further.
Why Zinc ?
Zinc offers the optimal solution, when compared with the traditional Pb-Acid starter battery and the still young Li-Ion systems. Zinc has the distinct advantage of cost, energy content and operational performance against Pb-Acid in stationary batteries. Zinc is also cheaper, more available, more sustainable, (environmental impact and recycling) and safer than Li-Ion, making it a credible candidate for e-buses, scooters, bikes and forklifts in addition to on-grid and off-grid stationary storage systems in domestic and industrial power, telecom and emergency systems.
- First day: visit of EverZinc’s largest zinc oxide production plant in Europe, exhibition of rechargeable zinc battery projects, networking dinner at Brussels Grand-Place.
- Second day: : Conference at Maison du Bois, Brussels. During this conference, industry leaders will present the advantages of zinc-based batteries over competing technologies in terms of cost, sustainability and safety.
