Novel electrolyte technology company Tydrolyte has announced that lead-acid industry veteran Dr Boris Monahov will join its advisory board at the start of 2019.
Tydrolite advisory board chair Stephen Johnson said Monahov’s “expertise and stellar reputation in the industry will be an asset as we work to help the company advance quickly toward commercialisation”.
Tydrolyte says its patent-pending electrolyte is a “less hazardous drop-in replacement for toxic sulfuric acid in lead batteries that can eliminate regulatory cost burdens.”
Monahov has reported that initial results from Tydrolyte’s performance testing indicate benefits beyond eliminating the drawbacks associated with sulfuric acid.
“Initial test results show the new electrolyte improves some critical battery performance parameters,” Monahov said.
In October of this year, Monahov announced his upcoming retirement from the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium, after nine years managing its technical programme. He will continue to support the Consortium’s activities as a consultant to the panel.
