Bromine Battery to Cut ICL Operating Expenses 16%
ICL, a global manufacturer of products based on unique minerals, anticipates a 16 percent reduction to its annual operating expenses with the deployment of a bromine-based battery. The battery was deployed for energy storage purposes at its fire retardant production site in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
The battery utilizes a Primus Power EnergyCell system to manage power consumption from the grid and lower demand charges, and to reduce electricity usage by decreasing peak power demand.
Bromine-based batteries are ideally suited for the long-duration stationary market to help companies efficiently and effectively store electricity, allowing them to minimize energy waste, reduce overall energy use and costs and ensure operations can continue in the event of a power outage. According to ICL, bromine is an abundant resource that enables cost-effective energy storage without supply concerns, making it ideal for smart-grid energy management.
ICL produces approximately one third of the world’s bromine, which is extracted from its vast reserves of Dead Sea brines.
