2020 Innovation Award

Every year, hundreds of innovations occur within the lead battery industry – from packaging and technology to equipment, chemistry and beyond. The goal of the Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz Innovation Award is to collect all of these innovations and showcase them to both the industry and the public. 

The award was established to honor industry thought leader, Sally Breidegam Miksiewicz, former CEO of East Penn Manufacturing Co.




Congratulations to the 2019 Innovation Award Winner!

RSR Technologies' active R&D initiative in the secondary lead industry has produced a new alloy, SUPERSOFT-HYCYCLE, enabling lead batteries to function at 2x current standards. Use of the Advanced Photon Source at the Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory has helped verify this improvement. The alloy improves cycle life, dynamic charge acceptance and capacity.
