Giving back to our community is something we truly believe in, and we were fortunate to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana! This organization believes in a world where everyone has a decent place to live. They have been building decent, affordable homes for struggling, working families since 1986.

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

Dr. Marvin Ho, V.P. Research & Development, will be presenting a paper on positive paste additives at the upcoming European Lead Battery Conference in Vienna, Austria.  Dr. Ho and his research team has been developing next generations additives to reduce electrolyte stratification, increase battery life and improve the lead-acid battery’s

Gordon Beckley, V.P. Performance Additives & Chief Technical Officer, participated in a panel discussion on “Hot Issues in Lead Acid Manufacturing and Recycling in North America” along with Adam Muellerweiss (Johnson Controls), Dr. Stephen Clarke (Aqua Metals) and Dr. Boris Monahov (Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium) at the NAATBatt International Conference

Enqin Gao, Senior Staff Research Engineer, presented Hammond’s recent findings on tetrabasic lead-sulfate development in the positive paste during the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) meeting in Nanjing, China.  Enqin discussed how the conversion rate of tetrabasic lead-sulfate can be increased with treatments to seed crystals and optimization of

On October 19, 2016, manufacturers, business leaders, and policymakers from across the state met in Indianapolis to honor those companies that have made outstanding contributions to the development of a healthy, dynamic environment in Indiana, and to the state’s overall economic well-being.

In an ALABC (Advanced Lead-Acid Battery Consortium) report to the BCI Deep Cycling Committee, micro-hybrids were called “the choice of consumers”. Micro hybrid electric vehicles seem to represent the best compromise between desired fuel savings on one hand and affordability to the consumer on the other. Battery demand forecasts for

HAMMOND — Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg said he wants to make venture capital money more available to attract and retain companies providing the type of higher income jobs seen at the Hammond Group, Inc.Gregg spoke of the need to try to raise the per capita income levels of Hoosiers

Inspirational. Motivational. Just what the industry needs. Those were some of the comments that came flying back after East Penn’s Bob Flicker gave the keynote address at 15ELBC yesterday (Wednesday) morning. “It was just what we needed to hear,” said David Prengaman, former president of RSR International. “Bob spelled it

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
