The zinc air fuel cells create energy through an electrolytical reaction. The energy is available 24/7 on demand, and the fuel cells are fully refurbishable. This means that all fuel cell housing parts, ion pick up plates, nuts and bolts, are re used in the refurbishment process. The used zinc, that formed zinc oxide, can be recycled to new zinc, or used as fertilizer. The new fuel cell housing design, shown in the picture, can be used in any position and does not need to stand upright, like the previous Africa fuel cell version. The new cell has more Volt and Amp output than the Africa version and is an improvement opening new markets and applications.
My international award-winning metallic fuel cell technology provides basic energy 24/7 at a cost lower than using candles. This technology is aimed to help improve the quality of life for the Bop market. Combining solar photovoltaic with my fuel cells, as a hybrid solution, offers exciting new opportunities. I believe in forming partnerships in order to achieve common goals. I believe in creating projects that benefit investors as well as beneficiaries. I have received many national and international awards for my technology and social impact created through projects implemented in Southern Africa. I developed a new generation zinc-air fuel cell in 2017, high current output suitable for electric vehicles and commercial applications. the new cells are fully refurbishable and offer exciting new opportunities in the energy storage market.
I am a passionate social entrepreneur who is a change maker. I think out of the box and find solutions and not problems. My strengths are negotiations, technology, communication, conflict resolutions and ethic dealings. I have over 35 years of experience in the alternative energy field. Having lived and worked with rural communities in different Southern African countries helped me to understand the basic needs these communities have and how to create sustainability. My aim is to help bridge the gap between the developed and developing world. Education, creating sustainable job opportunities that create disposable income and communication are a vital part to achieve this.
