The California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP, West Sacramento, CA) announced that Ztek Corp. (Woburn, MA) has joined its public-private venture to demonstrate and promote fuel cell vehicles and fuel alternatives. Ztek will team up with CaFCP associate partner, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E, San Francisco, CA) to supply a hydrogen reformer system, which will use natural gas to produce hydrogen and provide fuel for the partnership's fuel cell vehicles.

"We are excited to be part of the fuels team at the California Fuel Cell Partnership, and look forward to contributing to CaFCP's aggressive agenda to realize a viable fuel cell transportation industry," said Michael Hsu, President and CEO of Ztek. "A distributed hydrogen station with on-site natural gas reforming such as the one to be provided by Ztek can reduce the local hydrogen storage needs, resulting in a smaller footprint for the hydrogen station and a higher degree of safety."
