Differentiation from other battery technologies
In a sodium nickel chloride battery is also sodium. But, the battery belongs to the thermal batteries and requires an operating temperature of 250 to 350 degrees Celsius. Whereby, the GREENROCK sodium ion battery operates at ambient temperature and no maintenance of high temperatures is required.
Some Redox-Flow-Batteries have sodium components. Flow batteries are based on two energy- storing electrolytes that circulate in separate circuits. In contrast to the redox flow batteries, the GREENROCK sodium ion battery has only one electrolyte, which does not circulate, so no moving parts (pumps) are necessary.
