nanoFlowcell is a Swiss-based research and development company active in the field of flow cell battery technology. The company has registered offices in Kilchberg, Switzerland and London, United Kingdom.
The company was the first to develop a mobile flow battery small enough to be used in electric cars. Their flow battery, branded nanoFlowcell, was first presented in electric prototype vehicles Quant E, Quant F and Quantino. Similar to regular redox flow batteries, the nanoFlowcell battery uses electrolyte fluids to generate electricity from chemical compounds. Unlike the electrolytes in vanadium flow batteries or polysulfide bromide flow batteries, the electrolyte used in the nanoFlowcell is said to be non-toxic and environmentally compatible. While the company is not releasing its electrolyte formula prior to its first sales, their publications state that the electrolyte used in the nanoFlowcell battery has an energy density of 600 Wh per litre, which is ten times the energy density of regular redox flow cells. Production costs for this "non-flammable and non-explosive" electrolyte are said to be below 10 cents per litre.
