Bulgarian scientists have created the battery of the future

Scientists from BAS in partnership with colleagues from Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" have created a new generation battery that will revolutionize the storage of energy. It is an original Bulgarian development of a safe, cheap and environmentally friendly rechargeable battery based on sodium. It can be combined with lithium-ion batteries or even replace them completely in a number of applications. The great achievement of our scientists is the development of a new type of electrodes from easily accessible materials such as sulphate salts which are widespread and can even be found on Mars. The leading organization in the project is the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IGIC-BAS). Partners are the Institute of Electrochemistry and Energy Systems (IEES-BAS) [...]

Scientists examined the properties of the metal on the reactor hulls of Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant (NPP)

The successful implementation of the project “Estimated Analysis of the Resources in the Reactor Hulls of Units 5 and 6 of Kozloduy NPP based on the results of testing and examination of witness samples” was completed. Determination of activities and neutron fluence of witness samples from 3L assembly of Unit 5 and 2L of Unit 6 of Kozloduy NPP. The results of the project were directly related to the extension of the service lifetime of the reactors in the plant. The research was conducted under a contract between the Institute of Metal Science, Equipment and Technologies with the Center of Hydro- and Aerodynamics “Acad. A. Balevski “- BAS and Kozloduy NPP plc. […]
