Doniat Denis, Beccu Klaus, Porta Augusto: Method and apparatus for electrochemically producing an electric current. Battelle Memorial Institute Automobiles Citroen, June 3, 1975: US3887400 (17 worldwide citation)

Electric power is produced by electrochemical oxidation of zinc in suspension in an alkaline electrolyte. In order to prevent passivation of the zinc particles, the zinc-electrolyte suspension is continuously recycled during discharge so as to provide repeated passage of each zinc particle in an ele ...
