October 20, 2011 About our “Zero Waste Movement of lead-acid batteries
Lead-acid battery is an old battery since it was invented 150 years ago,
but is still widely used all over the world. Lithium-ion battery is so popular and draws much attention in Japan today and it looks like main stream of the various batteries. However, it is expected that lead-acid battery will be used widely for another 30 to 40 years in the world.
Reason for that lies in the fact that lead-acid battery is much more economical than lithium-ion battery. And, lead-acid battery will remain the main stream of battery in 80% of the world, especially in the developing countries.
At ITE Yeager-Kozawa Battery Laboratory, we were successful in reducing the weight/size of lead-acid batteries used for trucks, buses and taxi cars by 20% to 50%,
maintaining the same battery life by use of our Super-K additive since we started our study in 1995. Also, we developed new technology with which battery life can be extended to over 8 to 10 years with our additive and with proper maintainance of the battery. Our technology is now being applied in various countries in the world.
We are determined to keep our R & D efforts and to contribute to clean environment of the world by reducing the amount of producing new lead-acid batteries with our technology.
