VIASPACE Debuts Products at World?s largest Fuel Cell Conference in Tokyo
WORLD?S LARGEST FUEL CELL EXHIBITION OPENS IN
PASADENA, CA and Tokyo Japan ?February 7, 2007-- VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC), and its subsidiary Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation (DMFCC) debuted several new fuel cell products to the Asian marketplace at its booth at FC EXPO 2007, the world?s largest fuel cell and hydrogen industry exhibition, which opened today in Tokyo. Organizers of Fuel Cell Expo reported a record first day crowd and expect more than 23,000 attendees over the three-day event.
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.
