Building A Better Battery

[This story comes to us from Chelsea Yates, UW College of Engineering
Imagine revolutionizing the renewable energy market with the silica gel packets you find in shoeboxes and snack bags. Membrion is working to do just that to innovate battery storage with a lower cost, improved battery membrane that uses silica gel to better filter molecules. UniEnergy Technologies, Energy Storage Systems and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are eager to see this technology become successful.

Membrion also thanks CoMotion for taking part in helping Membrion bridge the gap from idea to product, hire research assistants and advance the technology. CoMotion also provided valuable IP coaching and helped Membrion apply for their patent. As always, CoMotion is here to support faculty and student entrepreneurship for research, innovation and commercialization.
