Dr. Rebeca Mancilla wins a ERC Consolidator Grant


The Project MFreeB (Membrane-Free Redox Flow Batteries) lead by Dr. Rebeca Mancilla, researcher from The Electrochemical Processes Unit (UPEQ) in IMDEA-Energy has been awarded for funding by ERC to develop the science for the next 5 years.

The project proposes the development of a new membraneless redox flow battery that separates the electrolyte (charge carriers) from the anode and cathode regions reducing the overall resistance of the device. The project will develop redox flow battery with cheap and abundant environmental-friendly organic electrolytes, additionally it proposes a fully scalable development that can provide a solution to the power and stored energy needs that are required in each application. The project will have a multidisciplinary research group to respond to all the challenges raised in the line of research.
