Batteries by the Environment, for the Environment

We develop carbon-based redox-active electrolytes (redoxolytes) to store energy in Redox Flow Batteries.

Our redoxolytes are safe, truly sustainable, and cost less, without performance compromise--critical features of any energy storage technology that genuinely aims to deploy and grow exponentially with renewables far into the future. This isn't next-gen tech. This is tech for the next thousand generations.

what's at stake

Integrating renewable energy requires complementary battery storage capacity that can sustainably scale with generation.

Energy storage is therefore technology for the future of humanity.

Dominant present-day battery technologies use combinations of lithium, heavy metals, and corrosive chemistries, making them flammable, toxic, unjust, and environmentally unsustainable to produce in the long term.

This is unacceptable if we genuinely want to curtail climate change and transition away from petroleum-dominated energy toward a renewable, sustainable future.



our impact

BioZen Batteries, Inc was co-founded in 2019 by UCSB-alumi PhD scientists with expertise in organic electronic materials, right here in the Goleta Load Pocket (the high-risk grid serving coastal Santa Barbara county), to directly innovate the materials we use for this critical energy storage sector.

Stationary battery energy storage systems with BioZen redoxolytes are safer, greener, and longer-lasting, while also keeping the grid stable, resilient to disasters, and integrated with renewables.

This reduces energy costs, preserves the environment, and provides autonomy to residents, commercial enterprises, and cities.
