Batteries batteries batteries! At this show, we can never get enough of them. Each battery has its own niche though and Natron Energy has certainly found its niche. In my interview with Jack Pouchet, we talk about the potential of Natron’s batteries to have a pivotal role in supporting essential energy services such as hospitals and data centers. Their batteries are unique and proprietary and use chemical components which have not been used in commercial battery production before. Natron’s new batteries are also making an effort to be sustainable and source common natural resources instead of the rare earth minerals used in lithium-ion batteries.

From October 31 to November 12 of 2021, 197 countries of the world met in Glasgow Scotland at COP26 to discuss climate change, emissions targets, mitigation, and collaboration. It was the first meeting like this since 2019, so the importance of the event was further emphasized. The world held it’s breath as the conference came to a close, and breathed a sigh of relief when the COP26 Glasgow Climate Pact was unveiled.

Concrete production emits almost 3% of the global carbon emissions every year. That is only one portion of the total industrial emissions including steel, aluminum, and clothing. Solutions to these fields are essential to mitigate climate change. The majority of emissions from concrete production don’t even come from burning fossil fuels, but the method of creating the concrete itself. That’s what Cody Finke and his startup Brimstone Energy are working to fix. They are pioneering a new process to create concrete that lowers the production emissions significantly.
