Today’s biggest winners include Altech Chemicals (ASX:ATC), who’ve executed a JV agreement with German battery institute Fraunhofer IKTS to commercialise IKTS’ revolutionary CERENERGY Sodium Alumina Solid State (SAS) Battery. 

Altech will be the majority owner at 75% of the JV company, which will commercialise a 100 MWh project to be constructed on Altech’s land in Schwarze Pumpe, Germany. 

The SAS CERENERGY battery uses common table salt and ceramic solid-state technology, but don’t try making one at home ok.

Also among the winners is Biotron (ASX:BIT) who kicked off a human trial of its lead antiviral drug – BIT225 – against COVID-19 in Thailand.

Apparently the drug has demonstrated both antiviral and favourable immunomodulatory effect in its current development for HIV-1 and has recently demonstrated both antiviral, immune modulatory and clinical benefit against SARS-CoV-2 “in an accepted murine model of disease” which is just a fancy way of saying it’s been tested on mice.

The biggest loser so far in early morning trade is Duke Exploration (ASX:DEX) who released an update that drilling is expected to be wrapped up at Bundarra this month.

Originally, the plan was to complete follow up resource-style drilling after a data review, but that’s on hold, with DEX citing unfavourable market conditions for small mineral exploration companies at present .

“The company remains confident that the drilling programs completed at Bundarra over recent months will lead to the identification of further resources at the project into the future, but it will require further funding to progress this work,” DEX says.
