BIRAD's professional team has earned the trust of both BIU faculty and industry partners seeking to move Bar-Ilan-based initiatives from the lab into the marketplace.

The following is a selection of just some of the startup companies launched by BIRAD over the past few years.

Phinergy

Phinergy is a leading developer of breakthrough zero-emission, high energy-density systems based on metal-air energy technologies resulting from discoveries  stemming from the  the laboratory of Prof. Arie Zaban.

The company’s primary focus is on aluminum-air and zinc-air batteries. Unlike conventional batteries that carry oxygen, these batteries freely breathe oxygen from the ambient air to release the energy contained in metals.

Phinergy's technologies offer significant advantages including:

  • Ultra High energy density
  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • Fully recyclable materials
  • Safety
  • Competitive cost

Phinergy's Aluminum-Air battery system has been successfully integrated into an electric vehicle resulting in more than three times the driving range of current EVs. Phinergy is currently partnering with French automobile manufacturer Renault to integrate its aluminum-air batteries in mass-production, long-range Electric Vehicles, as well as with US-based aluminum giant Alcoa, who will be providing materials for the batteries themselves.
