BUFFALO, N.Y. — The manufacturing of a piece of new green technology will soon be done in Buffalo.

Viridi Parente, a Buffalo-based company at the old American Axle site, has received a special waiver from New York to manufacture a state-of-the-art lithium battery that it developed.

The technology is a first of its kind and has not been used in the state before.

The batteries will then go to the Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute in Buffalo to power a new highly specialized microscope.

The microscope is so powerful that it can shorten research from years down to months, but it needs a ton of power. The batteries made here in Buffalo are going to make it work without all that extra electricity.
