About Rivus Batteries

Rivus develops aqueous organic electrolytes for flow batteries. Instead of filling flow batteries with salts of heavy metals, such as vanadium imported for example from China and Russia, the batteries are filled with organic materials that can be easily synthesized from standard bulk chemicals that are available in unlimited quantities. Rivus was founded in 2019 as a spin-off from Chalmers University of Technology and uses technology that was further developed during research at the University of Turku and the Technical University of Denmark.
