DIRECT METHANOL FUEL CELL CORPORATION

TO EXHIBIT AT FUEL CELL EXPO 2007 IN TOKYO

PASADENA, CA ?January 22, 2007-- VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC), a company dedicated to commercializing proven technologies from NASA and the US Department of Defense, announced today that its Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation (DMFCC) subsidiary will have an exhibition booth at FC EXPO 2007, the Third International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo, to be held February 7-9, 2007 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition hall in Tokyo Japan.  DMFCC also exhibited at the Fuel Cell Expo in 2006 which was the world?s largest exhibition covering the fuel cell and hydrogen industry with over 23,000 attendees and 404 exhibitors.  More information on FC EXPO 2007 is available at www.fcexpo.jp.

Dr. Carl Kukkonen, CEO of both VIASPACE and DMFCC, said, ?We will be demonstrating one of our fuel cartridges working with a direct methanol fuel cell made by Parker Hannifin. Other cartridges and prototypes will be on display.  We will also be demonstrating the VIASPACE laser-based humidity sensor for hydrogen fuel cells.  The booth will be manned by DMFCC staff from the US, Japan and Korea as well as by representatives from our cartridge manufacturing partners in Japan, Korea and the US.   We have also set up private meetings with potential customers and partners.?

 

DMFCC focuses on producing and distributing methanol fuel cartridges designed to provide the energy source for laptop computers, cell phones and other portable electronic devices to be powered by direct methanol fuel cells.

 

Fuel cells are expected to gain a substantial market share because they offer longer operating time as compared to current lithium ion batteries and may be instantaneously recharged by simply replacing the disposable fuel cartridge.  Leading OEMs have announced that they are developing direct methanol fuel cells for portable electronic applications.
