Nature exclusively uses organic
molecules to store energy
NATURE AS A MODEL
FOR ENERGY STORAGE
All plants, animals and humans use metal-based systems for oxygen supply. In contrast, the supply of energy takes place via a redox reaction based on organic molecules.
Nobel Price for
Hans Adolf Krebs
In the citric acic cycle or Krebs cycle, organic substances are broken down and converted into energy. Hans Adolf Krebs was a pioneer in the study of the biochemical energy production of cells. In 1953 he received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
Simplified principle for
Specific ring molecules are capable of efficiently absorbing, storing and releasing energy as required. We have simplified this principle for the industrial production of our organic flow batteries.
