Redox flow batteries are well suited for large-scale electrical energy storage, yet their deployment remains hampered by technical and economic challenges. Within the electrochemical cell, the flow field geometry determines the electrolyte pumping power required, mass transport rates, and overall cell performance. However, current designs are inspired on fuel cell technologies but have not been engineered for redox flow battery applications where liquid-phase electrochemistry is sustained. Here, we leverage stereolithography 3D printing to manufacture lung-inspired flow field geometries and compare their performance to conventional flow field designs. A versatile two-step process based on stereolithography 3D printing followed by a coating procedure to form a conductive structure is developed to manufacture lung-inspired flow field geometries. We employ a suite of fluid dynamics, electrochemical diagnostics and finite element simulations to correlate the flow field geometry with performance in symmetric flow cells. The lung-inspired structural pattern is demonstrated to homogenize the reactant distribution in the porous electrode and to improve the electrolyte accessibility to the electrode reaction area. In addition, the results reveal that these novel flow field geometries can outperform traditional interdigitated flow field designs, as these patterns exhibit a more favorable electrical and pumping power balance, achieving superior current densities at lower pressure loss. Although at its nascent stage, additive manufacturing offers a versatile design space for manufacturing engineered flow field geometries for emerging redox flow batteries and other electrochemical energy storage technologies.
