BeFC materials are organic, and we optimise them for a low environmental impact, improving their sustainability.
We prioritise the use of natural or bio-sourced materials where possible (e.g. natural graphite, cellulose), and the use of recycled materials (such as carbon nano fibres) or repurposed by-products (carbon black, for example) materials, where this is not possible.
Our focus is to provide a more sustainable alternative to conventional miniature battery technologies which traditionally rely on the mining of finite and sometimes rare earth metals. Such batteries use toxic materials that can be dangerous to dispose of, and are typically not economical to collect, process, and recycle.
We acknowledge the utility of traditional battery chemistries in the electrification of transport and grid-side storage, but believe we can provide a better solution for disposable and temporary applications.
