MagPower Systems Inc. has developed a powerful, reliable, plentiful and environmentally friendly non-toxic alternative power source that generates electricity by combining magnesium, saltwater and air. Magnesium-air saltwater technology was discovered in the 1960s but has not reached commercialization until now. With the discovery and development efforts of MagPower Systems Inc. the Magnesium-Air Fuel Cell (MAFC) is positioned to enter consumer markets as a commercially viable, alternative energy source.
The Company’s proprietary technologies increase individual cell efficiency to nearly eighty percent (80%) of the theoretical potential, better than conventional lithium ion systems. Unlike all battery technologies MAFC has a virtually “unlimited shelf life” (USL).
MAFC produces power through a process that is unique without any harmful toxins that can occur with conventional battery and fuel cell technologies. As a result energy output increases by 40% awakening the robust potential of the magnesium air fuel cell as a source of practical plentiful clean green and safe energy. The change in energy output also reveals other qualities that in practical applications development will engender valuable benefits both technologically and socially.
We see MAFC’s development potential flowing from these unique naturally inherent qualities:
Industry leading power to weight ratio. Energy density of our 12V unit is 136.19 Whr/kg without optimization. Better than a typical lithium ion system.
Instant-On Full Power
The ability to provide full power on demand gives engineers design flexibility and is a key feature for a number of applications.
Indefinite Shelf Life
Able to remain dormant indefinitely.
Until the electrolyte is added there is no self-degradation. All other systems suffer from self-degradation requiring maintenance and replacement depending on the application.
The essential materials used are non-toxic materials—no acids, bases, or volatile metals. Saline solution with the MPS agent as the cell’s electrolyte is harmless and requires no special handling.
Magnesium is the 8th most abundant element on earth and production has escalated in recent years.
The cell effluent is salt water and magnesium hydroxide, a compound commonly used as a stomach remedy.
A MAFC system is naturally more practical around salt water environments than conventional batteries.
Capable of handling extreme environments where other systems may have reliability issues.
Timely development and effective deployment of the unique MAFC technology is the core strategy of MagPower Systems Inc. Attracting development partners as well as designing our own products will accelerate MAFC innovation to maximize market penetration of this emerging technology. The technology’s unique qualities and supporting regulation will allow an unhindered development curve.
