Professor Thomas Maschmeyer

Gelion’s Founding Chairman, Professor Thomas Maschmeyer, was tonight recognised for his work on translating fundamental research into two pioneering technologies. These are poised to transform how we address the need for more efficient commercial waste recycling, and boosting the performance of renewable energy storage.

His revolutionary zinc-bromide gel batteries promise to make renewable energy cheaper, safer and deployable. This technology is especially suited to hot and remote environments due to its high temperature capability, low fade and tolerance of complete discharge.



Congratulations to Professor Thomas Maschmeyer, recipient of the 2020 Prime Minister’s Prize for Innovation.
