I ran across this story on the internet. What do you think ?? every little advance in technology helps ??

How A California Company Is Recycling Waste Slag To Deliver A Cheaper Advanced Battery

by Jeff Spross Posted on 4 August 2014 at 12:28 pm

A California firm called Imergy believes it’s hit on a new chemistry that can drastically reduce the costs of certain advanced battery systems.

In this case, it’s what’s called a “flow” battery. Most batteries create an electric current by shuttling ions between two positively and negatively charged solids. Flow batteries use two positively and negatively charged fluids, and create the ion reaction by pumping the fluids across either side of a membrane. This comes with several advantages: they’re long-lasting, they can be built to different scales and uses, and the tanks can be easily swapped to recharge the battery. And because we don’t control when solar and wind power produce electricity, flow batteries and other forms of energy storage will be a critical and widespread part of any grid that relies fully on renewable energy.

The downside of flow batteries is that their liquids currently rely on a solution of a mined material called vanadium — and the purer forms of vanadium that flow batteries require are also used by the steel industry. So the competition and constrained supply make vanadium expensive and hard to come by, which drives up the costs of the batteries. What Imergy did, according to reports by GreenTech Media, was come up with a chemistry that requires less pure forms of vanadium that it can purchase for much lower costs. The company is keeping the exact process under wraps and has filed multiple patents. But the upshot is that, instead of the 99.5 percent purity or higher most flow batteries need for their vanadium, Imergy can get by with 98.5 percent. That means Imergy doesn’t need to compete in the same markets as the steel industry, and instead can buy vanadium that’s been recycled from mining slag, oil field sludge, and other sources that come with a bit more contaminants .......

In my part of the world, Puget Sound in Western Washington, the local oyster farms are having problems with shell development due to the increased acidification. That is a fact and they are now becoming proactive to ameliorate the situation. So do not deny a measured event. It's effing real!

Right from the Alaska coast, down the Pacific coast of Canada to the USA ... state of Washington, Oregon ....

all the scientists in both United States of America, Canada, Washington state, British Columbia, Alaska, Oregon .... are all seeing the same thing ...

The United States says acidification of the oceans means there is an already growing risk

to the northwest coast fishery, including crab and salmon, according to studies released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

As more carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere and absorbed by the oceans,

the water is becoming more acidic and that affects many species, especially shellfish, dissolving the shells.

A NOAA study released today of environmental and economic risks to the Alaska fishery says:

Many of Alaska’s nutritionally and economically valuable marine fisheries are located in waters that are already

experiencing ocean acidification, and will see more in the near future…. Communities in southeast and southwest Alaska

face the highest risk from ocean acidification because they rely heavily on fisheries that are expected to be most affected by ocean acidification…

An earlier NOAA study, released in April, identified a long term threat to the salmon fishery as

ocean snails called pteropods which are a prime food source for pink salmon are already being affected by the acidification of the ocean.
