ZAF Energy Systems expanding development of cutting-edge battery technology from Columbia Falls facility

March 17, 2017View for printing

ZAF Energy Systems , a technology firm located along the thriving entrepreneurial corridor of U.S. Highway 2, is striving to develop the next generation of battery technology that could help power motor vehicles, infrastructure and aircraft.

The company believes it has found a viable replacement to traditional lead-acid batteries by blending together the active ingredients of nickel, zinc and potassium hydroxide. The result is a technology that is safer, cheaper and more effective than its lead-acid predecessor, according to company officials.

"We think our mission statement is pretty ambitious but attainable: We're going to change the way we power the world," Randy Moore, president and CEO, said last week.
