Environmental regulatory systems are inherently complex. Policies and agencies often find themselves at odds with each other, as they try to implement their own charters. This is certainly the case in the energy area, and particularly with battery power. Here’s the problem. While climate programs are promoting battery power, other

Additives are probably the hottest area of competition in the lead-acid sector. That competition is fierce. Can less than 1% of what seems like the remains of a campfire really make such a difference to battery performance and lifetime; graphites, graphenes, nanotubes common or garden soot? Additives such as these are absolutely
