Manhattan Scientifics Inc. (Los Alamos, NM) confirmed that it has been issued US Patent No. 6,808,834 Koschany - Fuel Cell Stack with Cooling Fins and Use of Expanded Graphite in Fuel Cells. Invented by Arthur Koschany, the hydrogen-powered NovArs fuel cell has been successfully demonstrated in a number of prototype, pre-commercial situations, and is intended to power a bicycle or a motor scooter for several hundred miles without having to refuel.

Manhattan Scientifics CEO Marvin Maslow stated, "As our economy actively begins to enter the fuel cell era, this patent on our NovArs fuel cell is potentially quite valuable for our company and our shareholders. We are currently aggressively pursuing our business plan to have the NovArs fuel cell manufactured for use on electric bicycles and scooters in Asia."
