The Future is in The Air

I was shown many new technology ideas years ago, and I was told that cars would imitate plants and to look to the natural world for the ways to make clean technologies that would increase our power without damaging the planet. This looks exactly like one of those I saw in meditation. I love seeing them show up.

Phinergy Powers Car Using Metal, Air, and Water

Phinergy is a leading developer of breakthrough zero-emission, high energy-density systems based on metal-air energy technologies. The company’s primary focus is on aluminum-air and zinc-air batteries. Unlike conventional batteries that carry oxygen, these batteries freely breathe oxygen from the ambient air to release the energy contained in metals.

Phinergy's technologies offer significant advantages including:
  • Ultra High energy density
  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • Fully recyclable materials
  • Safety
  • Competitive cost

The Company’s Aluminum-Air battery system has been successfully integrated into an electric vehicle resulting in more than three times the driving range of current EVs.

Phinergy's technology provides energy solutions to a wide range of applications including:
  • Transportation
  • Stationary energy storage
  • Aerospace and defense
  • Consumer electronics
  • Chlorine production 

Watch this amazing demonstration and explanation of the technology.


Metal-air technology has been at the forefront of energy research for years, due to its enormous energy potential.
Phinergy's technological breakthroughs allow it to efficiently utilize this potential for various applications, outperforming conventional batteries.

A conventional battery consists of an anode and a cathode, where the cathode takes up to 70% of the battery’s weight. The cathode is used as a container for a reactant (e.g. Oxygen), usually up to 5% of its weight, that is required for releasing the energy in a metal anode. The result is that most of a conventional battery’s weight is poorly utilized.

Conventional Battery

A metal-air battery features an air-electrode that breathes oxygen from ambient air, instead of the conventional cathode. That is, the battery consumes the required oxygen from the air, rather than having heavy materials that bound oxygen inside it. Metal-air batteries therefore have a huge potential for delivering high capacity with low weight.
