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 battery storage capacity that can sustainably scale with generation.

Energy storage is technology for the future of humanity.

Dominant present-day battery technologies use combinations of lithium, heavy metals, and corrosive chemistries, making them flammable, toxic, 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 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.

  • Active Components: Non-toxic, carbon-based, recyclable materials that can be synthesized with green chemistry anywhere on earth and endure 10000+ charge cycles—for decades.

  • Solvent: Water. No acid. Non-flammable.

  • Hardware: Abundant elements (such as Aluminum and Iron) that are not affected by socioeconomic or political strife are used to construct electrodes, reactor chambers, housings, etc.

  • Transport: Shipped by land, sea, AND AIR. Deploy anywhere.

  • Installation: Integrate directly with the grid, or power your remote application. Decentralize storage to increase resilience.

  • Scalability: Stack them in series to boost voltage, stack them in parallel to boost capacity. Power your home or a city block.

  • This is isn't just next-gen tech. This is tech for the next 1000 generations.

the time is now

Humanity's energy needs are increasing, and will continue to increase. Stored energy is energy for the future of humanity. But, a problem looms:
Existing battery technology cannot be scaled up sustainably into the future.

From August 2018 DOE Spotlight Solving Energy Storage Challenges

Lithium is not recyclable, and Vanadium must be mined from the earth—not to mention their flammability and toxicity effects. A truly sustainable technology cannot be made from non-sustainable resources. We urgently need a safe, environmentally-conscious, green-energy solution to meet the future demand.

The answer?

BioZen organic flow batteries

Active Components || Non-toxic, carbon-based, recyclable materials that can be synthesized with green chemistry anywhere on earth and endure 10000+ charge cycles over decades of operation.

Solvent || Water. No acid. Non-flammable.

Hardware || Abundant elements (such as Aluminum and Iron) that are not affected by socioeconomic or political strife are used to construct electrodes, reactor chambers, housings, etc.

Transport || Shipped by land, sea, and AIR. Deploy anywhere.

Installation || Integrate directly with the grid, or power your remote application. Decentralize storage to increase resilience.

Scalability || Stack them in series to boost voltage, stack them in parallel to boost capacity. Power your home or a city block.

This is isn't just next-gen tech. This is tech for the next 1000 generations.

  • Active Components: Non-toxic, carbon-based, recyclable materials that can be synthesized with green chemistry anywhere on earth and endure 10000+ charge cycles—for decades.

  • Solvent: Water. No acid. Conveniently non-flammable.

  • Hardware: Electrodes, reactor chambers, housings, etc. are built from abundant elements (like Aluminum and Iron) that are not affected by socioeconomic or political strife.

  • Transport: Shipped by land, sea, AND AIR. Deploy anywhere.

  • Installation: Integrate directly with the grid, or power your remote installation. Decentralize storage to increase resilience.

  • Scalability: Stack them in series to boost voltage, stack them in parallel to boost capacity. Power your home or a city block.

  • This is isn't just next-gen tech. This is tech for the next 1000 generations.

invest in the impact

The global rechargeable battery market will be $20 Billion in 2020, $100 Billion in 2025, and $1 Trillion in 2030.

BioZen's organic active materials reduce the toll on the environment and reduce the cost to consumers—with no performance compromises—because environmental sustainability must be economically viable.

Our team was founded in 2019 in the Goleta Load Pocket (the grid serving coastal Santa Barbara County). Here there are fires, floods, mudslides, high wind, and other natural phenomena that consistently combine with our constrained transmission line to put the entire region at risk for catastrophic power failure.

We are raising capital to help us scale up our R+D. You can get in on the ground floor of this project by contributing even a small amount.

We have the technical expertise and will first address the Goleta Load Pocket, which is analogous to hundreds of similar communities globally, and expand from there.
