Whether because of concerns about climate change, fuel costs or energy security, people and governments around the world are increasingly interested in “de-carbonising” their lives and economies.

As we’re all finding out, it’s neither easy nor cheap to de-carbonise, but there are big opportunities and big rewards for those that can help (in a low cost way) with the following:

Energy Storage

Energy Storage

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Low Carbon

Low Carbon Energy Generation


With AACarbon, we can make an impact in all of these areas, and intend to do so over the years to come. To start with though, we have concentrated on Energy Storage - specifically, the negative electrode of a Lead Acid Battery (LAB).


ArcActive Opportunity

Micro Hybrid Vehicles will be the mass market car of the future... Many are predicting that by 2020, around 50% of all new cars sold each year - or 40m vehicles - will have stop-start and regenerative braking functionality.

Lead Acid Batteries (LABs) are the “starter battery” for virtually every mass market vehicle today. They are a proven, low cost product, but they can't meet the demands of tomorrow's cars.
